What if you could ask C. S. Lewis his thoughts on some of the most difficult questions of life? If you could, the result would be Dr. Alister McGrath’s provocative and perceptive book, If I Had Lunch with C. S. Lewis:Exploring the Ideas of C. S. Lewis on the Meaning of Life. Best-selling author, prominent academic and sought-after speaker, Dr. McGrath sees C. S. Lewis as the perfect conversation companion for the persistent meaning-of-life questions everyone asks.

What makes Lewis a good dialogue partner is that his mind traveled through a wide and varied terrain: from atheism of his early life to his conversion later in life; from his rational skepticism to his appreciation of value of human desires and imagination; from his role as a Christian apologist during World War II to his growth as a celebrated author of classic children’s literature. The questions Lewis pondered persist today: Does life have meaning? Does God exist? Can reason and imagination be reconciled? Why does God allow suffering?

You've Been Invited To Lunch With C.S. Lewis! by "Doc" on 2/26/2014
Rating

The 50th Anniversary of the death of Clive Staples “Jack” Lewis has provided an opportunity for much reflection by scholars of his life and works. I’ve had the opportunity to review several, and they have all been excellent. This book is no exception. There is one caveat – when you sit down to read this book, make sure you have a pen (for writing notes in the ample space provided on facing pages and margins) and a highlighter (for highlighting the passages that WILL be leaping off the page).

This is not light reading. This is important reading. But that does not mean that it is boring. Alister McGrath has been “reading” C.S. Lewis for over 40 years, and his insights into the thought of C.S. Lewis help the rest of us to really “get” what this wonderful writer and apologist was trying to communicate.

And don’t let the small footprint of this book fool you; that merely aids in portability. When you open this volume, you will be immersed into a world of thought and ideas that will challenge you to the very core of your being.

As I said . . . this is important reading. It requires reflection; you may find yourself reading passages over and over to comprehend the truths being reflected. Don’t stop. It’s worth it. It really is.

5 stars for a challenging book that will change your life for the better
