Item Description...
The author explores and systematizes the eschatology of C.S. Lewis and subjects it to theological scrutiny. Although there are many books on Lewis, there are few that make a rigorous and critical assessment of his theology, and none-until now-that examine his eschatology in depth.

Publishers Description
It might seem something of a spurious claim to suggest that Lewis was an eschatologist when the word eschatology hardly ever appears in the corpus of his published writing, but nevertheless this book boldly makes that claim. C. S. Lewis was not a classically trained theologian. He wrote no systematic theological treatise. Time and again he referred to himself as a layman and an amateur, as one theologically uneducated and even unlearned. Yet here was a man, English scholar, broadcaster, children's writer, and Christian apologist, whose later life became very much caught up in the business of heaven. Together with his brother Warnie, with his friends J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and many others, C.S.Lewis made up an intellectual group which called themselves the 'Inklings'. The joke, of course, was a literary one but it could just as easily have been eschatological. For Lewis, above all, the heaven-directed was never lacking. His work is wrought with the sense of another world, more solid and of a deeper reality than we can ever begin to comprehend. He captured perfectly the truth that we have an inkling of that Something More - if only we would realise it - in every longed for, aching, yearned after, itching and unsatisfied moment of our lives. Lewis's work - and thus this book - is not just about eschatology. It is about an eschatological desire that drives our Christian faith and calls us to communion with God. "The author brings together, with what seems the greatest ease, the interlocking threads of Lewis's thought. The book is a logical and brilliantly clear illumination of the outstanding gifts that came together when C.S. Lewis's reason and imagination were forever reconciled." Walter Hooper Dr Sean Connolly studied theology at the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas in Rome. His most recent research examined the life and writings of C.S. Lewis. He has published two previous books: 'The Road to Holiness' (St Paul's, 1999) and 'Simple Priesthood' (St Paul's 2001). He currently teaches ethics and religious studies in Gloucestershire.
