Descent into Hell

Full Product Description

The key to William's mystically oriented theological thought, Descent into Hell (arguably William's greatest novel) is a multidimensional story about human beings who shut themselves up in their own narcissicstic projections, so that they are no longer able to love, to "co-inhere". The result is a veritable hell.

The action takes place in Battle Hill, outside London,with the staging of a new play by Peter Stanhope. Characters from the past appear, and perhaps the hill itself is a doorway to the beyond as characters are alternately summoned heavenwards or descend into hell.

Stanhope, in an action central to the author's own theology, takes the burden of her fears upon himself in what Williams called 'The Doctrine of Substituted Love' drawn from the biblical verse, "Ye shall bear one another's burdens :"

Descent into Hell by Charles Williams was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in December 1949 and is our 32207th best seller. The ISBN for Descent into Hell is 9780802812209.
