Monday, April 15, 2013 8:08 am EDT

The 50th anniversary of Lewis' death sees the work of this exceptional author as relevant today as ever, and his theological writings, which continue to have a wide and devoted following, remain immensely influential. Although not a professional theologian, Lewis' work is widely accepted as having developed significant theological themes. The Intellectual World of C. S. Lewis, written by leading Christian thinker and bestselling author Alister McGrath, explores eight key aspects of Lewis' intellectual development and importance. Based on new research, this fascinating volume uncovers some original and important insights relating to the major themes of his work.

With a single authorial voice throughout, these essays bear the hallmark of McGrath's widely respected scholarly, and yet accessible style. McGrath throws fresh light on each subject, and offers new connections as he addresses key themes at the centre of C. S. Lewis' work, including his intellectual development, the uses of images in literature and theology, the place of myth in modern thought, the role of the imagination in making sense of the world, and Lewis' place as an Anglican thinker and a Christian theologian.
