SERIES: C. S. LEWIS: REVELATION AND THE CHRIST (Book 2)
C. S. Lewis--The Work of Christ Revealed focuses on three doctrines or aspects of Lewis's theology and philosophy: his doctrine of Scripture, his famous mad, bad, or God argument, and his doctrine of christological prefigurement. In each area we see Lewis innovating within the tradition. He accorded a high revelatory status to Scripture, but acknowledged its inconsistencies and shrank away from a theology of inerrancy. He took a 2,000-year-old theological tradition of aut Deus aut malus homo (either God or a bad man) and developed it in his own way. Most innovative of all was his doctrine of christological prefigurement intimations of the Christ-event in pagan mythology and ritual. This book forms the second in a series of three studies on the theology of C. S Lewis titled C. S. Lewis: Revelation, and the Christ. The books are written for academics and students, but also, crucially, for those people, ordinary Christians, without a theology degree who enjoy and gain sustenance from reading Lewis's work

C. S. Lewis - The Work of Christ Revealed
"Owen Barfield wrote of C. S. Lewis that 'somehow what he thought about everything was secretly present in what he said about anything.' P.H. Brazier's comprehensive study details Lewis's Christology, revealing that what Lewis thought about Christ was what he thought about everything. This insightful, thorough, learned exposition of the quintessence of Lewisian theology also suggests a reading of his fiction and literary theory, bringing readers back to Lewis's ouevre again and again."
Published poet, and adjunct faculty member in English, Lehigh Carbon Community College
"A groundbreaking treatment demonstrating C.S. Lewis's depth, originality and reinforcing the view of him as one of the twentieth century's greatest Christian thinkers. Crucially for those Evangelicals undecided on aspects of Lewis's theology, Dr Brazier's masterful examination of Lewis on Christology and revelation offers welcome reassurance. This substantial and nuanced volume, then, is a must-read, not only for Evangelicals but also any student of the life and thought of C.S. Lewis."

"Serious investigations into the theology of C. S. Lewis have been long in coming . . . [T]he fact that Lewis was not a professional theologian has led to him being overlooked by those who were most able to engage critically and creatively with his writings. Fortunately . . . a new generation of scholars has taken up the task. Paul Brazier's latest contribution to this is a most welcomed accomplishment that will leave an indelible impression on our understanding of--and appreciation for--Lewis's remarkable theological contributions."

"In this rigorous and searching study of the theology of C. S. Lewis, Paul Brazier locates Lewis within the wider context of theological scholarship and shows him to be a theologian to be reckoned with in his own right, rather than simply a populariser of Christian faith. This most welcome volume in a proposed four-volume series will surely prove invaluable in the assessment of Lewis's legacy."
