Lewis (1898-1953) was the most talented and lucid apologist for Christianity that our century has produced. In essays, critical studies, poems, novels and works of autobiography, he turned his formidable literary gifts to the task of re-presenting the Christian view of human destiny to a world bewildered by scientific materialism.

Philip Vander Elst surveys the whole of Lewiss vast output, and gives a clear and illuminating summary of his stance towards the outstanding questions of our civilisation. Setting the writings within the context of Lewiss own painful life and striking conversion, he shows the enduring importance of a thinker whose vision of modern life was both comprehensive and profoundly optimistic.

For those approaching Lewis for the first time, Vander Elsts book provides a lucid and stimulating introduction- for those already familiar with Lewiss writings, it offers a challenging analysis of their meaning and of the continuous thread of argument which runs through all their various themes. An indispensable guide to an indispensable thinker.
