C. S. Lewis is one of the best loved and most engaging Christian writers of recent times, and he continues to be a powerful defender of the faith. It is in his imaginative fiction that his genius finds its fullest expression and makes its most lasting theological contribution. Famously, Lewis had friends – who, like him, employed powerfully creative imaginations to explore the profundities of Christian thought and their struggles with their faith.
This book contains illuminating essays on C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, Dorothy L. Sayers, Rose Macaulay and Austin Farrer.
