I found the book interesting as it worked back and forth between Freud's view and Lewis' view. I appreciated the historical content as well as the philosophical/theological content. The author tried to connect belief with reality by showing how the person's worldview was revealed in specific life experiences. As a Christian it was encouraging to see how differently Lewis faced death in comparison to Freud who simply gives up the battle to live out of exhaustion. The author shows that both Lewis and Freud struggled over man's relationship to God. For Lewis the battle with God ends in a joyful submission to God and His Word. Freud, who for all his profession of being an atheist, spends his entire life battling with something (Someone) he says doesn't exist, which doesn't make any sense unless that existence is real. I gave a copy of this book to a psychiatrist who was trained in the Freudian analytical school. I am interested in hearing his take on the book. Overall, I learned a lot about Freud and Lewis that I did not know and I found the book enjoyable to read as well as insightful.
