Beyond the Shadowlands : C. S. Lewis on Heaven and Hell
C. S. Lewis's fiction is rich with reflections on the afterlife. For many, reading his books helps in forming a more vivid understanding of Heaven and Hell. In this book, Lewis scholar Wayne Martindale uses some of Lewis's best-loved fiction as an imaginative complement to his discussion on eternity.
Those who know Lewis's work will enjoy Martindale's thorough examination of the powerful images of Heaven and Hell found in Lewis's fiction, and all readers can appreciate Martindale's scholarly yet accessible tone. Read this book, and you will see afresh the wonder of what lies beyond the Shadowlands.
"Beyond the Shadowlands does much more than illuminate C. S. Lewis. It illuminates the great mystery of the nature of eternal life. This book makes the Christian reader yearn for what lies ahead."
--Gene Edward Veith, Cultural Editor, World magazine
"Dr. Wayne Martindale has done us all a great favor in gathering up and putting into one volume what C. S. Lewis has written about Heaven and the afterlife. The Lord has a way of shining the light of Heaven down on the works of Lewis, and in the process delivering us moderns from secular-minded myths. Many who read Beyond the Shadowlands may find not only Heaven and a longing for the eternal birthed in them, but missing parts of themselves set in as well: a remythologized and ennobled self more fully participating in an eternal kingdom."
--Leanne Payne, author, founder, Pastoral Care Ministry School
"This is no mere book. It is a window to the next world. You will see things here that few have seen. Wayne Martindale has produced a work of great love and illumination like nothing else you'll read this year."
--Thomas L. Martin, author of Poiesis and Possible Worlds, editor of Reading the Classics with C. S. Lewis
