    Book details

C.S. Lewis, himself a layperson in the Church of England, has exercised an unprecedentedly wide influence on the faithful of Anglican, Roman Catholic, Evangelical and other churches, all of whom tend naturally to claim him as one of their own. One of the reasons for this diverse appropriation is the elusiveness of the church-in the sense both of his own denomination and of the wider subject of ecclesiology-in Lewis writings. The essays contained in this volume critically examine the place, character and role of the Church in Lewis life. The result is a detailed and scintillating picture of the interactions of one of the most distinctive voices in twentieth-century theology with the contemporaneous development of the Church of England, with key concepts in ecclesiology, and with interdenominational matters.

... a significant addition to the scholarly work on Lewis... The authors of this book typically strike just the right balance between a survey of the figure at the heart of the particular chapter and a presentation of some specific examples of their theological interests. -- Church Times... this is a thought-provoking collection... and it stands well beside Hooper's own most impressive monument, the magnificent three-volume annotated edition of Lewis's letters. -- Oxford Journals This collection of splendid essays portrays a deeply spiritual Lewis from many perspectives. It is an essential read for everyone with interest in any phase of his life. -- Theological Book Review, Volume 23, No.2
