Out of the ballpark

by Karenfern on Oct 30, 2011

He hit this one out of the ballpark by creating a situation, making it credible and then exploring its implications. Like Screwtape, he uses humor as well as sensitivity and sensibility to redefine aspects of the afterlife. Whether one believes in one or not, the lessons for the living are clear. We are the result of our choices.

CS Lewis is always amazing and anything by him makes you look at things differently.

Must Read

by Michael H on Jul 8, 2011

Looking for a challenge to the traditional (not necessarily as biblical as they think) ways of speaking of heaven and hell? Then this is a book for you. It will challenge and stretch your concepts of this images that are by nature larger than our capacity to understand. This book is my favorite, not only of the great C. S. Lewis, but in general. If you liked other Lewis books, you'll love this one. It is great to discuss within a group setting as well as it invites lots of conversation.

I enjoyed this book, by CS Lewis - about life here after Heaven and Hell - Interesting perspective


Great book

by RondaB on Nov 11, 2010

As with any CS Lewis book, this one requires a quiet room and full concentration (and in my case-rereading several passages). If gives insight as only Lewis can into things that no one can really know, and is done with humor that belies the seriousness of the topic. If you like CS Lewis you will love this book, if you have never read Lewis, it is a nice short one to start with.

Out of the ballpark

C S Lewis is never as wonderful as when playing with images and ideas. This, along with Screwtape, shows him at his best. He creates a situation, makes it credible and then explores its implications without being preachy. He was a superb craftsman.


Good lawyer, great divorce

C S Lewis hit one out of the ballpark with this one. He set up an environment wherein people were given a final choice of destinations and used the space to explore what went into both good and bad. He also made the wonderful point which I keep making to my more fervent Christian friends that there ... Read more
