Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Wesley Kort takes the opportunity of C.S. Lewis's recent centenary toassess the author's ongoing appeal, to examine his critique of modern culture,and to explore the varied riches he has personally found in decades ofrereading. Taking into account a wide-ranging legacy of fiction, autobiography,and essay, he concentrates his attention on Lewis's ability to imagine a rich,collective life --a shared communal vision. Kort argues that the post-modernworld in which we live is ripe for a writer so adept at building bridges betweenvarious constituencies, so versatile in his mastery of different kinds ofwriting. After years of teaching Lewis to Duke undergraduates, he now brings hissmart, timely discoveries to the rest of us."--Peter S. Hawkins, BostonUniversity. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was a distinguished scholar of medieval and Renaissance literature who taught at both Oxford University and Cambridge University. After his conversion to Christianity, Lewis began writing Christian apologetic works aimed at a popular audience. It is for these works that Lewis is now best remembered; especially in the U.S., where his books have sold in the millions and continue to be popular today. Perhaps because of this popularity, however, Lewis's Christian writings are generally dismissed by theologians as oversimplified and conceptually flawed. With this book, Wesley A. Kort hopes to rehabilitate Lewis and to demonstrate the value and continuing relevance of his work. Kort not only retrieves Lewis from the now-dated context of his writings, but also wrests him from the hands of evangelicals who have turned his word into gospel and mistaken his attacks on modernity for a retreat from the world. Kort addresses and refutes common prejudices about Lewis and shows that, although Lewis was sharply critical of the materialism and narcissism of modern culture, he nevertheless insisted that only through culture can Christian teachings effectively shape moral character. Lewis's desire for a fruitful, interactive relationship between Christianity and culture sharply distinguishes him from neo-orthodox theology and many contemporary Christian rejections of culture.
