The Case Against the Gods: C.S. Lewis’ Grief and Complaint

250px-C.s.lewis3Well, today is the 50th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis, one of my favourite authors. To commemorate the man and his body of work, here is an essay I have written about him – part of a larger book I am writing on the role of emotional suffering in the lives of significant Christian writers. I hope that this essay can help open up for you aspects of Lewis’ life and work which I have found particularly helpful in my own life and writing.

  1. I read this article slowly over most of Tuesday, and it was a real comfort to me. It was well-written and thought-provoking. I enjoyed reading it.

    I had tried to post a kindly comment when I had finished, but my computer decided not to cooperate at that time. So, my appreciation is late. But still sincere.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks so much. I began that essay during a fairly difficult time for me personally, and finished it when I was feeling much more positive. It was a very personally meaningful piece for me to write. I’m glad it was comforting to you too!
