This book: Brings together a collection of original essays exploring important themes within Lewis’ work, offering new connections and insights into his theology ; Throws new light on subjects including Lewis’ 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, the celebrated ’argument from desire’, and Lewis’ place as an Anglican thinker and a Christian theologian ; Written by Alister McGrath, one of the world’s leading Christian thinkers and authors; this exceptional pairing of McGrath and Lewis brings together the work of two outstanding theologians in one volume."--Publisher’s website.
