The abiding draw of C. S. Lewis

1 comment:

  1. On the fiction side, his space trilogy had a much larger impact on me than the Narnia series, and I still recommend it to people (though like Fr. Andrew says, people in and outside the church don't read much anymore).

    On the apologetic/non-fiction side, Lewis is still one of the few thinkers in the last 100 years to have really understood Christianity on the one hand, modernity on the other, and have the rhetorical ability to meaningfully communicate the difference in non technical way (i.e. without using "jargon" as Fr. Andrew puts it).

    Interesting what Fr. Andrew said, about how the way Lewis structured his thought and writing is becoming difficult for the newer generations.
