Paperback

Alister McGrath considers how C S Lewis' varied writings address the big meaning-of-life questions everyone asks. Join McGrath as he shows how magic wardrobes, spaceships, and mythical creatures can point to Christian truth.

What if you could ask C.S. Lewis his thoughts on the questions we all ask ourselves from time to time - questions about friendship, education, suffering, God... and the meaning of life itself?

Does life have meaning?

What's the nature of real friendship?

Can reason and imagination be reconciled?

Does God exist?

How do we deal with pain?

And are these questions - even, perhaps, the answers to them - to be found in books that feature magical wardrobes, spaceships and Greek myth?

Author and academic Alister McGrath sees C. S. Lewis as the perfect conversation companion for the persistent meaning-of-life questions everyone asks, thanks to the wide and varied terrain of his life: Lewis travelled from early atheism to conversion, from rational scepticism to the appreciation of the value of human desires and imagination; and from Christian apologist during the Second World War, to celebrated author of classic children's literature. The questions Lewis thought - and wrote - about are still asked today, and all are illuminated by his astonishingly varied body of work.

Join McGrath as he opens the wardrobe door and guides you into a conversation with Lewis's writings, in which all the most important questions are asked.
