The written legacy of C.S. Lewis continues to be a rich mine of Christian thought and perspective. And each work continues to be as relevant today as it was at its original publishing.And now, Lewis scholar Louis Markos has done the community of faith a great service by organizing Lewis’s thoughts on a wide scope of subjects pertaining to modernity and postmodernity—on science and the natural world, the new age movement, philosophy, evil and suffering, the arts, and heaven and hell. Lewis Agonistes will make readers work in the same way that Lewis’s writings made them work, forcing them to rethink and examine ideas—to become participants in the agon (or wrestling match) of the twenty-first century.
