Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Schakel (The Way into Narnia), an English professor at Hope College, bases this book on C.S. Lewis's idea that our conception of God should grow as we grow. As Aslan tells Lucy in the Narnia series' Prince Caspian, Every year you grow, you will find me bigger. Each chapter addresses a practical or theological aspect of the Christian life (like prayer, grace, church and the problem of pain), summarizing Lewis's writing on the topic and tracing how his thinking changed as he matured in his faith. Chapters begin with a Bible passage and are filled with quotes from Lewis's books and letters, the musings of his Inkling friends, and other writers he admired, like George MacDonald. Each chapter also refers to how the idea is expressed in Lewis's popular Narnia series. It's a testimony to Schakel's deep familiarity with Lewis that all of this is seamless and easy to read in spite of the vast source material. Readers may find that the book does not entirely live up to the title's premise, but it's a valuable summary of Lewis's thoughts on Christian living, which will be especially useful for small groups. Readers new to Lewis will find the book approachable, and longtime fans will find something new or be reminded of passages they love. (Feb.)

Discerning readers will enjoy and receive thought-provoking stimulation in this volume. Especially the chapter on "Why We Need the Church" that provided food for thought that can supplement what is revealed explicitly in Scripture. (Forrest L. Bivens, Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly, Summer 2009)

I believe there are at least two types of readers who would especially benefit from this book. First, the young person who has enjoyed
The Chronicles of Narnia but is not yet interested in Lewis's non-fiction may find here an exteremely accessible account of his ideas about God and the Christian life. Second, the person who is new to Lewis and therefore uncertain of where to begin may use this volume as a helpful guide for determining which of Lewis's writings speak most directly to her own interests. (Nathan D. Hieb, Koinonia, 2009)

In the steady stream of Lewisiana issuing from publishers, this book is distinguished by Schakel's clear thought and concise writing. (Daniel Boice, Catholic Library World, September 2008)

Regardless of their familiarity with Lewis, readers will find this thematic exploration into "imaginative theology" inspirational. (Adam Griffin, Youth Worker Journal, July/August 2008)

. . . A valuable summary of Lewis's thoughts on Christian living. Readers new to Lewis will find the book approachable, and longtime fans will find something new or be reminded of passages they love. (Publishers Weekly, December 3, 2007)

"Thank you for a tremendously gifted and helpful contribution to Lewis studies. In fact, I'd call it the very best book on Lewis ever done and the most important in its teachability and attractiveness to new Lewis readers and to young Lewis readers." (Corbin Scott Carnell, author of Bright Shadow of Reality: C. S. Lewis and the Feeling Intellect)

"Schakel is the wisest and humblest of C. S.Lewis's commentators. Our understanding of Lewis will never be complete, but this book comes very close!" (Walter Hooper, author of C. S. Lewis: A Complete Guide to His Life & Works)

Is Your Lord Large Enough? is an excellent overview of various ways that C. S. Lewis employs images--in both his fiction and nonfiction--to illuminate theological matters. Lewis scholar Peter Schakel has used his considerable expertise to write an engaging work on aspects of Lewis's religious thought which is at once both instructive and devotional in nature. I highly recommend this volume for those who would welcome assistance in understanding and applying Lewis's insights on the Christian faith to their own life experience." (Marjorie Lamp Mead, associate director of the Marion E. Wade Center and coauthor of A Reader's Guide to Caspian)

"This is a spiritually nourishing book by one of the world's foremost C. S. Lewis scholars. Schakel explores C. S. Lewis's role as a spiritual mentor in a format that will encourage readers in their own faith and worship." (David C. Downing, author of The Most Reluctant Convert)
Always the perfect gift
