Item Description...
Overview
As a child, C.S. Lewis caught glimpses of a "truer-than life world," a realm drenched with what he could only call "joy". As a teen, inspired by George MacDonald's Phantastes, he "saw the bright shadow coming out of the book into the real world and resting there, transforming all common things and yet itself unchanged." The "new quality, the bright shadow" that enamored Lewis was a manifestation of ultimate reality. It was, he discovered, "holiness." Gerard Reed invites you to an insightful and enlightening exploration of the holiness of God - translated into the health, wholeness, and joy of the inner life - as traced in the writings of C.S. Lewis. The reader discovers Lewis's emphasis on "transformation," the divine working of the Holy Spirit, infusing grace and conforming believers to the image of Christ Jesus. These themes resonate with the believer's quest for the holy life. Providing a fascinating quest and intense study, C.S. Lewis and the Bright Shadow Of Holiness invites the reader to "share the joy" and join the adventure of new heights to which the bright shadow may lure you!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
most influential  May 13, 2007
I haven't enjoyed a book as much as this for a long time. I've read this book at least four times and refer to it on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the average Christian and/or "sinner" (non christian) will not have any inclination as to why this book is so relevant.

Gerard Reed has validated a lifetime of dissatisfaction I've had with contemporary Christianity and solidified my determination to continue to seek God despite my faults and the hypocrisy of modern churches.

I've read Lewis for years and the underlying current of unconditional love and overpowering strength of God's love has been completely realized in "...The Bright Shadow of Holiness".

Your passion just might be God's calling card! The idea that God is a creator/architect and the ideals that we, naturally, come about during our lives, may just be evidence of the divine. Lewis recognized later in life that the "joy" he felt when he was having revelation of a thing, or the appreciation of beauty and perfection, may have been the wooing of the Holy Spirit, drawing him to God. This book describes in detail the possibility that God may have been active in your life, whether or not you've sought it out. You may be closer to God than you think.

I keep extra copies to give to friends and family.

The book is genius!

 
Holiness As It Should Be Understood  Jan 8, 2001
Thought holiness was stiff, legalistic and restricting? This book will change the way you see yourself and the way you see God. Holiness is explained the way it has always meant to be. Enjoy it. You won't regret owning this book.
