Editorial Reviews

Review

“C. S. Lewis once suggested that it would be a boon to be able to have a real live Epicurean at our elbow when reading Lucretius or to learn from a mouse or bee’s perspective; so Professor David Clark gives us the enlarged pleasure of reading Lewis with a sensible and good-humored theologian by our side. This is no stale and stuffy pedantic writing, but a lively, witty, and fully engaging translation of Lewis’s thoughts on Christian doctrines of faith and redemption (and a bit of Purgatory). With clarity and piercing insight, Professor Clark guides us merry fellow pilgrims along Lewis’ own spiritual and intellectual journey, pointing out hidden trails, narrow paths, and fascinating facts and myths along the way.”
Terry Lindvall, Virginia Wesleyan College

“Professor Clark writes with the confidence of one whose broad and informed acquaintance with the Lewis canon allows him to speak authoritatively about Lewis's theology and use of Scriptural tradition.”
Bruce L. Edwards, Bowling Green State University

“A very winsome book – nicely poised between a comprehensive introduction for the reader new to Lewis and a holistic treatment of the varied literary output in the Lewis canon for Lewis admirers … The chief contribution of this work lies in [Clark’s] steady treatment of Lewis’s use of Scripture and the Scriptural basis of his own imaginative works … This work walks the tightrope between saying too much and saying just enough from the perspective of a Biblical scholar who also well understands the nature and narrative and why Lewis wrote as he did. Very good for individual or group study.”

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a C.S. Lewis fan and Evangelical Christian I found Clark's book a great overview and summary for the works I have enjoyed as well as works I have not yet read, such as Lewis' Sci-Fi trilogy. I appreciated the list of references in the front of the book and still have it marked for reference. It is an extremely easy read and flows well.

Clark's organization of the book worked for me. The layout helped me prioritize which Lewis works I will read next and what I will pay attention to. This book has helped me obtain a great overview of how all these works tie together, some links between the various works themselves, some how they link to events in Lewis' life, and most importantly how they link to how God "may" work.

"Lewis and Clark" have been used to really solidify my beliefs as a Christian; Provided logical, viable "answers" (that suit me) to many of the very difficult life questions we all must answer in some way. Ironically, just as the historical explorers Lewis and Clark opened up new frontiers for exploration and documented the "unknown" so have C.S. Lewis and David G. Clark.

I think Clark's book is wonderdeful and a must read if the reader is interested in the theological basis for Lewis. It is incredibly readable and comprehensive.
