$17.99

Paperback
Also Available In
C. S. Lewis's fiction is rich with reflections on the afterlife. For many, reading his books helps in forming a more vivid understanding of Heaven and Hell. In this book, Lewis scholar Wayne Martindale uses some of Lewis's best-loved fiction as an imaginative complement to his discussion on eternity.

Those who know Lewis's work will enjoy Martindale's thorough examination of the powerful images of Heaven and Hell found in Lewis's fiction, and all readers can appreciate Martindale's scholarly yet accessible tone. Read this book, and you will see afresh the wonder of what lies beyond the Shadowlands.

"Beyond the Shadowlands does much more than illuminate C. S. Lewis. It illuminates the great mystery of the nature of eternal life. This book makes the Christian reader yearn for what lies ahead."
Gene Edward Veith, Cultural Editor, World magazine

"Dr. Wayne Martindale has done us all a great favor in gathering up and putting into one volume what C. S. Lewis has written about Heaven and the afterlife. The Lord has a way of shining the light of Heaven down on the works of Lewis, and in the process delivering us moderns from secular-minded myths. Many who read Beyond the Shadowlands may find not only Heaven and a longing for the eternal birthed in them, but missing parts of themselves set in as well: a remythologized and ennobled self more fully participating in an eternal kingdom."
Leanne Payne, author, founder, Pastoral Care Ministry School

4 stars By Julie, Apr 30 2015
I'm so glad Wayne Martindale wrote this book. C.S. Lewis is a master of the imagination and dares to go into territory that the Bible is short on and a little obscure about; namely, heaven and hell. Martindale has presented Lewis's work in an interesting and readable format. Warning: You don't have to have read everything of Lewis's recently or at all but I'm sure the book would be even more helpful if you have. The early chapters on heaven have left a distinct impression on me - it's going to be unimaginably wonderful and that's why Lewis and Martindale encourage us to think about the greatest joys and blessings of this world that are a simple foretaste of heaven. The chapter on purgatory and limbo was insightful and clarified a myth I had in my mind. Highly recommended.
