Overview

Perhaps no age has so dulled the edge of the Christian agon as the twentieth century, an age whose modern and postmodern ideologies have proven so monolithic, so all-embracing that most Christians cannot step back far enough to get the proper perspective needed for a full and effective critique. Thankfully, though, the twentieth century also produced one of Christianity's greatest wrestlers, a man whose vision allowed him to pierce through the modern and postmodern tree to examine the roots that sustain it. That man was C. S. Lewis, and, in Lewis Agonistes, you will follow Lewis as he carries his agon into some of the most contested battlefields of the twenty-first century. Lewis scholar Louis Markos has done the community of faith a great service by organizing Lewis's thoughts on a wide scope of subjects pertaining to modernity and postmodernity. Lewis Agonistes will make you work in the same way that Lewis's writings make you work, forcing you to rethink and examine ideas -- to become a participant in the agon or wrestling match of the twenty-first century.
