"Every year you grow, you will find me bigger." --Aslan to Lucy in Prince Caspian C. S. Lewis was, of course, a brilliant apologist, and his books contain much to feed your intellect. But Lewis was also very concerned about Christian formation and strongly desired to help believers deepen their faith and broaden their vision of God. In this book Peter Schakel opens to you ...more

Is Your Lord Large Enough?, Peter J. Schakel. Downers Grove: InterVarsity Press, 2008.

Summary: This book looks at the contribution Lewis made, particularly through the way his books engage the imagination, to the spiritual formation of Christians, exploring a number of the matters crucial to their growth in Christ.

Peter J. Schakel has written a number of fine books on C.S. Lewis including one on Till We Have Faces (Reason and Imagination in C.S. Lewis: A Study of Till We Have Faces) that I found
I didn't get too far into the book. I guess I just don't understand the rationale behind writing a book about what some one else said. I wanted to like it but I found myself wishing I could just take the time that I spent reading this book and use it to read the books that were being talked about. In many ways I wished Schakel had something to add to Lewis' commentary but I never came across anything that clarified, provoked, or challenged the way that C. S. Lewis can.

I've really enjoyed all the chapters I've read so far, and they've given me lots to think about and usually provide new perspectives, new ways of looking at things that I hadn't considered before.

I like how each chapter is on a different topic so you can pick up anywhere - such as on a subject that currently interests you. There are so many interesting topics to choose from. It's neat to see how various works and thoughts by Lewis relate to a given topic, and I also like the discussion question
A good look at several themes and ideas of Christian thought running through CS Lewis' books. At times the writing feels like an academic paper, especially with the cold, abrupt start the first two chapters seem to follow, but eventually the pacing evens out. Recommended for more serious fans of CS Lewis, or for those who've read more than The Chronicles of Naria or Mere Christianity.
Love love loved this book! It gave a lot of insite into Lewis's way of thinking about life, and more so after life. It stirred up some questions I had about my own views on Christianity as well as giving me insite into Lewis's. Although I don't agree with everything that Lewis believed, I do think the book is well worth reading.
This is a fabulous book. Whether you are new to faith or have been reading the Bible for years, this book has something for you. Mr. Schackel interjects the works of Lewis at the end of each chapter, which I really liked. I read it twice and will probably read it again some day.
