Overview

C. S. Lewis was concerned about an aspect of the problem of evil that he called subjectivism: the tendency of one's perspective to move towards self-referentialism and utilitarianism. In C. S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil, Jerry Root provides a holistic reading of Lewis by walking the reader through all of Lewis's published work as he argues Lewis's case against subjectivism. Furthermore, the book reveals that Lewis consistently employed fiction to make his case, as virtually all of his villains are portrayed as subjectivists. Lewis's warnings are prophetic; this book is not merely an exposition of Lewis, it is also a timely investigation into the problem of evil.

Editorial Reviews

The Glass, Number 23, Spring 2011 - Barry Livingstone
“The strength of Root’s book, it seems to me, is its comprehensiveness. Root ranges widely over the Lewis oeuvre, and encompasses not only Lewis’s apologetic works but also literary criticism, his poetry and his fiction… […] … it will be illuminating for those to whom Lewis is new territory.”
