Biography, Theology, and You (Review: “C.S. Lewis and the Crisis of a Christian”)

I like C.S. Lewis a lot. He wasn’t a Catholic, but he was a convert to Anglicanism, and more importantly, he was an incredible writer. I read The Chronicles of Narnia first, but when I entered adulthood, I discovered his apologetics works. I love them so much that I have reviewed most of them here at Austin CNM!

It was with great interest, then, that I read C.S. Lewis and the Crisis of a Christian, by Gregory S. Cootsona. Rather than being a simple biography, this reads like a biographical bibliography, taking us through Lewis’s life by way of various existential and spiritual crises. Lewis’s life was far from easy and his theological journey far from straight. Despite having read so much of his writing already, I found much to enjoy in this detailed, insightful, and well-organized presentation.

"If we find the gospel message to be true, we need to surrender to God and change our lives. For that reason—whether or not the [C.S. Lewis] trilemma or some form of it works—many will still never assent that Jesus is God." —Gregory S. Cootsona
