In the Highest Degree  Volume One

The theological and philosophical works of C. S. Lewis were grounded in the argument from reason. As such reason is a form of revelation that predates nature and relates to the divine: the Word of God, Christ the Logos. These essays provide some understanding of the essentials to Lewis's philosophical theology, that is, the essentia, "in the highest degree." Lewis's corpus can seem disparate, but here we find unity in his aims, objectives, and methodology, a consistency that demonstrates the deep roots of his philosophical theology in Scripture, in Greek philosophy, patristic and medieval theology, and in some of the Reformers, all framed by a reasoned discipline from a perceptive and critical mind: method and form; content and reason--for the glory of God. Here is the essentia of Lewis's thinking. From an analysis of reason, through a theoretically unified proposition for atonement, to the evidence of Christ as the light of the world across human endeavors and religions, to a doctrine of election, to an understanding of Scripture, to "the Philosophy of the Incarnation" (as Lewis termed it,) through fundamental arguments with various modern/liberal theologians, we find evidence for the actuality of the incarnation: the divinity of Christ.

The Problem of Evil in the Western Tradition

Before World War II had even ended, the Northern Irish writer Clive Staples (C. S.) Lewis (1898–1963), conservative Anglican and Oxford don, wrote Perelandra (1944), the second novel in a threepart space trilogy.

The Problem of Evil in the Western Tradition

The question of evil presents a profound challenge to humanity - why do we do what we know to be wrong? This is especially a challenge to religious believers. Why doesn't an al-good and omnipotent God step in and put an end to evil? The Problem of Evil in the Western Tradition examines how Western thinkers have dealt with the problem of evil, starting in ancient Israel and tracing the question through post-biblical Judaism, Early Christianity (especially in Africa), the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and to the twenty-first century when science has raised new and important issues. Joseph Kelly covers the book of Job, the book of Revelation, Augustine of Hippo, Aquinas, Luther, Maslow, Milton, Voltaire, Hume, Mary Shelley, Darwin, Jung, Flannery O'Connor, Karl Rahner, Teilhard de Chardin, and modern geneticists. Chapters are Some Perspectives on Evil," *Israel and Evil, - *The New Adam, - *Out of Africa, - *The Broken Cosmos, - *The Middle Ages, - *Decline and Reform of Humanism, - *The Devil's Last Stand, - *Rationalizing Evil, - *The Attack on Christianity, - *Dissident Voices, - *Human Evil in the Nineteenth Century, - *Science, Evil, and Original Sin, - *Modern Literary Approaches to Evil, - *Some Scientific Theories of Evil, - and *Modern Religious Approaches to Evil. - Joseph F.

Extraterrestrials in the Catholic Imagination

What do scientists know about the possibility of life outside our solar system? How does Catholic science fiction imagine such worlds? What are the implications for Catholic thought? This collection brings together leading scientists, philosophers, theologians, and science fiction authors in the Catholic tradition to examine these issues. In the first section, Christian scientists detail the latest scientific findings regarding the possibility of life on exoplanets. The second part brings together leading Catholic science fiction authors who describe how “alien” life forms have been prevalent in the Catholic imagination from the Middle Ages right up to the present day. In the final section, Catholic philosophers and theologians examine the implications of discovering intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. Rather than worrying that the discovery of intelligent extraterrestrials might threaten the dignity of humans or their existence, the contributors here maintain that such creatures should be welcomed as fellow creatures of God and potential subjects of divine salvation.

What Men Want to Say to Women  But Can   t

No matter one’s political persuasion, most of us agree there’s something deeply wrong in America today. Conflict has reached a fever pitch as our nation has become alarmingly polarized in the political arena. Many look to politicians and public policies for solutions, but journalist Andrew Breitbart rightly said that politics couldn’t be fixed if culture is ignored, because “politics is downstream from culture.” McAllister would take this observation a step further—politics might be downstream from culture, but culture is downstream from relationships. If we don’t focus on the personal building blocks of society, we will fail to fix problems in culture and the politics that flow from it. If relationships are sick or broken—especially those between men and women—then everything else is affected. If there’s little love, respect, and trust there, you won’t find it anywhere else. Men are tired of being dumped on. They have a lot to say to women about sex, equality in the workplace, raising boys, and the lie of “toxic masculinity,” but modern feminism and a politically correct culture have silenced them. This “war on men” has disrupted relationships and caused men to question their place in American society. “Misogyny,” “male privilege,” and “the Patriarchy” are buzzwords that shut men down. Some are so frustrated they’ve given up entirely—“Who needs women if all they’re going to do is use you and treat you like garbage?” Anger, separation, and simply giving up aren't solutions to a festering problem. Instead, we need to heal relationships by learning to respect the designed purposes of masculinity and femininity. For this to happen, women will need to hear some hard truths about themselves and those they love. In What Men Want to Say to Women (But Can’t), cultural commentator and New York Times bestselling author Denise McAllister speaks to women on men’s behalf—exposing the lies of modern feminism and offering insights on how to rebuild broken relationships in the workplace, at home, and in the bedroom. Here’s a sneak peek at a few things men would like to say to women, but can’t: • “When I look at your cleavage, it doesn’t mean I want to rape you.” • “Stop complaining about equal pay when you don’t do equal work.” • “Children need their father—stop shutting men out of the picture because you think you do everything better.” • “I will teach my son to compete—now go toss that participation trophy in the trash!” “A triumph of compassion, insight, and good sense. Denise McAllister doesn’t just want to fix how men and women talk to each other. She wants to heal a fraying holy sacrament. Read this book to save your marriage—or to find one.” —Milo Yiannopoulos

C  S  Lewis and the Inklings

This volume offers essays on a variety of aspects of the inter-related topics of “hiddenness” and “discovery”: literary, biographical, philosophical, and source study. The Inklings that are examined in this anthology are C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Owen Barfield, with two of their literary predecessors and influences that are included under the term “Inklings” in this anthology: G. K. Chesterton and George MacDonald. Readers will find new territory for further exploration of C. S. Lewis and the Inklings in the areas of 1) creative collaboration among the Inklings; 2) genres (for example, the penny dreadful, Christian liturgical poetry); 3) literary influences (H. G. Wells, Dante); 4) linguistics (Tolkien’s “web of words”); and 5) the convergence of literature and theology. Other areas, which readers would find interesting, are medieval cosmology, classical mythology and Nordic mythology in Lewis’s and Tolkien’s works (the pagan mythology of the Greeks and Romans, and the Nordic myth of Ragnarök). Consequently, Lewis’s A Discarded Image was studied by several contributors to substantiate his knowledge on the medieval cosmos.

C  S  Lewis and the Catholic Church

C. S. Lewis, the great British novelist and Christian apologist, has been credited by many-including the author-for aiding their journey to the Catholic Church. For this reason, it is often perplexing that Lewis himself never became Catholic. In C. S. Lewis and the Catholic Church, Joseph Pearce delves into Lewis's life, writings, and spiritual influences to shed light on the matter. Although C. S. Lewis's conversion to Christianity was greatly influenced by J. R. R. Tolkien, a Catholic, and although Lewis embraced many distinctively Catholic teachings, such as purgatory and the sacrament of Confession, he never formally entered the Church. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this book digs deep to present the facts of Lewis's life, to illuminate key points in his writings, and to ask the question: Was C. S. Lewis on the path to Rome? This revised and updated edition-with a new introduction by Father Dwight Longenecker-is a fascinating historical, biographical, theological, and literary account of a man whose writings have led scores to the Catholic Church, despite never having become a Catholic himself.
