Product Description

(PUBBeacon Hill)Thinking the world adrift in moral uncertainty, Lewis desperately strove to separate what was permanent from what was ephemeral. Reed analyzes those values most cherished by Lewis to see if he can still be a bellwether for direction into the 21st century. An important read! 144 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

’A recovery of the old sense of sin is essential to Christianity. Christ takes it for granted that men are bad. Until we really feel this assumption of His to be true, though we are part of the world He came to save, we are not part of the audience to whom His words are addressed.’ --C.S. Lewis. Pride...envy...anger...lust...gluttony...sloth...avarice... C.S. Lewis, often called the grandfather of evangelical writers, is well known for the impact his books made on a secular society as well as in Christian circles. Not surprisingly, he had something to say about these seven deadly sins. The seven virtues -- prudence, courage, justice, temperance, faith, hope, love -- were portrayed in his writings as well. Gerard Reed, Ph.D., explores Lewis’s thoughts on vice and virtue as expressed in his writings. Although Lewis never wrote a full-fledged ethical treatise on the seven deadly sins and seven virtures, Reed draws upon Lewis’s words in timeless classics such as Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, Surprised by Joy, and others, and also draws upon thinkers Lewis used, such as Aristotle and Aquinas. Through Lewis’s words, Reed points us to a deeper relationship with God and with our world.
