    1 star1 star1 starNo starNo star    A powerful book, but not Lewis at his best.

    C. S. Lewis wrote this highly personal allegory a year after his dramatic conversion to Christianity in his early thirties. Modelled on Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, he gives a vivid allegorical portrayal of all the worldviews and philosophies he was beguiled by on his spiritual journey until he finally, and reluctantly, accepts the truth of Christianity. The first half of the book, in which the various worldly delusions are depicted, I found charming and amusing, and often powerful too. What I think prevents this book from being as highly regarded as Lewis's other Christian writings is the forbidding and sometimes repulsive picture of Christianity that emerges in the second half of the book. The joy of the Christian life seems to be quite absent, with the emphasis on temptation in this world and death as a welcome release from it. (He seems to regard lust as the most pernicious and corrupting sin, with Hell as the inevitable fate of those who cannot overcome it completely.)

    This book gives a powerful and revealing insight into Lewis's spiritual journey. But, overall, it fails to do justice to the Christian faith in the way that he later achieved in books such as The Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity.
