Abstract

C.S. Lewis, himself a layman in the Church of England, has exercised an unprecedentedly wide influence on the faithful of Anglican, Roman Catholic, Evangelical and other churches, all of whom tend naturally to claim him as ’one of their own’. One of the reasons for this diverse appropriation is the elusiveness of the church--in the sense both of his own denomination and of the wider subject of ecclesiology--in Lewis’ writings. The essays contained in this volume critically examine the place, character and role of the Church in Lewis’ life. The result is a detailed and scintillating picture of the interactions of one of the most distinctive voices in twentieth-century theology with the contemporaneous development of the Church of England, with key concepts in ecclesiology, and with interdenominational matters.
