INTO THE REGION OF AWE Mysticism in C.S. Lewis

by | Read by Simon Vance

Philosophy & Religion • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Simon Vance interprets the author's work with clarity. He explores Downing's interpretation of Lewis's interest in Christian mysticism with empathy. With deft narration, Vance describes the writers who influenced Lewis and how they differed from the famous writer. Vance speaks with warmth and a subtle rhythm as Downing explores concerns Lewis had with mystical thought, some of which Lewis called, "misguided forms." Lewis feared these forms could lead to sacrilegious thinking. Vance unspools their meanings, phrase by phrase, as Downing explains the differences Lewis saw between valid and invalid mysticism. Vance's adept reading style equips listeners to understand why Lewis is thought of as a "commonsense Christian,” with easy-to-understand theology and practical morality. This work also explains Lewis's mystical foundation for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA and other writings. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
