Product Description

The written legacy of C.S. Lewis continues to be a rich mine of Christian thought and perspective. And each work continues to be as relevant today as it was at its original publishing. And now, Lewis scholar Louis Markos has done the community of faith a great service by organizing Lewis's thoughts on a wide scope of subjects pertaining to modernity and postmodernity--on science and the natural world, the new age movement, philosophy, evil and suffering, the arts, and heaven and hell. This book will make readers work in the same way that Lewis's writings made them work, forcing them to rethink and examine ideas--to become participants in the agon (or wrestling match) of the twenty-first century.

    Mr. Markos doesn't hold back anything in this highly acclaimed work. "Lewis Agonistes" teaches and encourages the reader on how to wrestle with the issues we face today.

    This book has really helped me understand the overarching meanings of C.S. Lewis' books -- even though that's not the main intention of the book, Louis Markos brings most of Lewis' canon to light. The book was written to open the eyes of Christians to the movement our post-enlightenment modern and post-modern world has taken. Louis Markos shows us how C.S. Lewis, or Lewis Agonistes (Latin for wrestler), wrestled with the modernist of his time. Louis Markos then uses Lewis to argue with the postmodernists of our time. How, for example, Lewis argued with the materialists, who believe in only what his senses tell him. How Lewis wrestled with the idea that we as a race aren't perfectible (this mindset gave us Hitler, Stalin, and other tyrants who tried to perfect 'man'), and many other issues covering the sciences, the arts, and even issues that deeply touch our lives. I strongly recommend this book, it can provide a lot of insight to C.S. Lewis fans of any stripe.
