Want to Know What C.S. Lewis Would Think?: If I Had Lunch With C.S. Lewis by Alister McGrath

Leah Courtney
I often think about Christians who are long gone to Heaven and consider those I would really love to meet. Characters that I know only from the pages of my Bible, well-known saints, and other Christians that have gone before- I can't wait to meet them! C.S. Lewis is one I think often of meeting and talking with.

Alister McGrath- author of a biography of C.S. Lewis- has written a book of eight imagined lunch time conversations with C.S. Lewis.

Combining quotes from Lewis along with ideas from his writing, McGrath puts forth Lewis's ideas on the meaning of life, friendship, Narnia and stories, Aslan and the Christian life, apologetics, eduction, the problem of pain, and the hope of heaven. McGrath takes Lewis's writings and skillfully combines his ideas to present what Lewis would have said about each topic. He also brings in writings of those around Lewis and those he considered mentors.

Because I love Lewis' quotes and have read many of his books, I recognized many of the quotes and ideas that McGrath was using. He presents Lewis' ideas so smoothly that it did seem as if I was listening to Lewis.

McGrath has a unique point of view when discussing Lewis. He- like Lewis- was once an avowed atheist. Because of this connection he does a great job explaining Lewis' views on God and the meaning of life.

If you're a Lewis fan and have enjoyed his writing, If I Had Lunch With C.S. Lewis is an excellent read. You can find it on Amazon here.
