Edited by John Piper, David Mathis, Contributions by Randy Alcorn, Philip Graham Ryken, Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Douglas Wilson

C. S. Lewis is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's most important Christians. His dedication to the life of the mind and the life of the heart is clear in classics such as the Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity, novels that demonstrate the inextricable link between rigorous thought and heartfelt affection.

This volume explores the man, his work and his legacy in contributions from Randy Alcorn, John Piper, Philip Ryken, Kevin Vanhoozer, David Mathis and Douglas Wilson, which celebrate the truth at the heart of the spiritual genius of Lewis: God alone is the answer to our deepest aspirations and a source of our endless joys.
