The Romantic Rationalist

Full Product Description

C. S. Lewis stands as one of the most well-known and widely read Christians of the twentieth century. His many works, including Mere Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia, have inspired generations of Christians and non-Christians alike.

This new book, edited by best-selling author John Piper and David Mathis, explores the man, his work, and his legacy, with chapters from Randy Alcorn, Philip Ryken, Kevin Vanhoozer, and Douglas Wilson. Overflowing with lessons from Lewis on the nature of Scripture, the gift of salvation, and the final restoration of all things, this volume will deepen your appreciation for this incredibly influential Christian writer.

“A book that displays the impressive breadth of Lewis’s appeal across denominational boundaries and that helpfully highlights the continuing importance of his example as a Christian who could think both rationally and imaginatively. Altogether an interesting, lively, and thought-provoking read.” — Michael Ward, Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford.

“A great introduction to and reflection on a remarkable Christian!” — Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
