Deeper Magic: The Theology Behind the Writings of C.S. Lewis

with Donald Williams

How did C.S. Lewis present Christian teachings?  

What are the strengths and weaknesses of his presentation as a guide to biblical truth?

C.S. Lewis was one of the most influential Christian thinkers of the 20th Century.  He may have got more Christian ideas into more heads than any other writer. We, therefore, need a judicious assessment of his theology.   Yet we all constantly run into people for whom Lewis is a saint who can do no wrong, and others for whom he is a dangerous heretic who should be shunned because he does not dot some theological i or cross some theological t the way they do.  Neither approach is helpful.  Rather, we need to look at the standard topics of systematic theology and ask the above mentioned questions!
