What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"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 Jr., Provost and Professor of Literature, Patrick Henry College; Director, Cranach Institute, Concordia Theological Seminary

"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
