Book Review: The Great Divorce

Summary: In "The Great Divorce, " C.S. Lewis's classic vision of the Afterworld, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations, and comes to some significant realizations about the nature of good and evil.

Thoughts: Another great allegory from one of my all-time favorite authors! I actually didn't realize this was fiction until I picked it up, I was expecting another book on theology such as Mere Christianity or The Problem with Pain (both amazing books I intend to write reviews on in the future). This takes on a different approach to it's main point and reads much like Pilgrim's Progress (another great read). The entire story is comprised of many different stories as seen through the eyes of the narrator and are often times sad or infuriating, some even managed to be funny though! With the quick wit and sharp mind he's known for, C. S. Lewis opens up and discusses many aspects of Heaven we are all lead to question. While saying nothing definite (for who can really explain Heaven while still of this earth?) he poses many possible and plausible answers to the questions he raised and urges the reader to think for themselves using the basis of the Bible itself.

Content: Many of the topics are mature though not inappropriate.

  1. Awesome review, I am a major devotee to remarking on web journals to educate the web journal scholars realize that they've added something beneficial to the internet!.. Attorneys In Lakeland Fl
