What Is The Best Way To Start A Research Paper On C.S Lewis?From Homework Help Forum:
what is the best way to start a research paper on C.S Lewis? I am writing a research paper in British Literature on C.S Lewis an it is our big grade for the year. I need to know what is the best way to start my paper and possible end it.
Answer: There are numerous ways to approach a paper on C.S. Lewis. You could focus on his works, and within that, divide by his fiction vs. non-fiction, earlier vs. later works, Narnia chronicles for kids vs. polemics on Christianity for adults. My recommendation would be for you to identify a central theme or message - e.g., the influence of his religious conversion on his writing, then write the paper with that chosen message. Check out articles on authors written for New Yorker magazine, where that approach is commonly used. The book 'Surprised by Joy' is his autobiography. If you don't want to take the time to read the entire book (not terribly long, but still an investment), at least familiarize yourself with the central points of his biography. You can't understand C.S. Lewis without some grip over his childhood experiences, and of those, the more traumatic ones stand out - such as the death of his mother at an early age or the hugely repressive experience he had in boarding school. Also grasp a bit about the political and intellectual climate he was facing, with respect to the late 19th-early Th centuries, where culture, politics, and economy were in very severe, challenged states. He shares common ground with other "moderate" Christian-oriented writers of the same period, such as T.S. Eliot, Thomas Merton, or Paul Tillich, all turning to faith as a stand against the chaos of the time. An academic paper is often shunned by students, but to approach it as a story and with a mission pretty much always guarantees success and enjoyment. A good indicator that your direction needs some solidification is when you find yourself quoting excessively. A paper is analysis, not stenography.

What Does C.S Lewis Cite As The Question Of Why God Does Not Deal Openly And Decisively With The Devil?From Homework Help Forum:
What does C.S Lewis cite as the question of why god does not deal openly and decisively with the devil? Mere Christianity by C.S Lewis If you know anything about this subject it is very welcome. However the page number were he answers this question would also be helpful.
Answer: Lewis points out, as most Christians would, that God is going to "deal with the devil" - and quite a bit more - at some point in time. Think what this will mean - literally the end of the world, even the end of the universe and the Final Judgment. (I assume that you know some Christian theology). We will know, finally and certainly, which side we have chosen - whether we belong to God or not - and the time for choosing will be over. This is a long way of saying that God is delaying the end out of kindness to those who have not chosen to leave the devil's side and "join up" with God, if you will. I will also assume that you have read "Mere Christianity" and just suggest where you might look for the answer - this is a homework assignment, after all. Mere Christianity is divided into 4 books. Look in Book Two at the chapters "The Invasion" and "The Practical Conclusion".

What are 2 influences that influenced C.S Lewis to write"the lion,the witch & the wardrobe"? So I need 2 things that influenced C.S Lewis to write "the chronicles of narnia:the lion the witch and the wardrobe" and at least 4 examples from the book not the movie- page numbers too please, if any!

You could review the Wiped entry on the book for additional info..... And as for giving you 4 examples with page numbers, you are asking us to do your homework for you, which I will graciously declines to do. Please read the book for yourself and answer for yourself.
Are Jehovah's Witnesses Allowed To Read C S Lewis Books?From Religion & Spirituality Forum:
Are Jehovah's Witnesses allowed to read C S Lewis books? Like 'Screwtape Letters' and Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe." Since CS Lewis is known as a Christian writer and all his books are basically metaphors for Christianity, it would be like reading books by any other religious writer would it not? JWs can not read books written by other Christian faiths, so does this mean C S Lewis is also off limits, like L. Ron Hubbard, or whatever.
Answer: We have no problem reading books from any authors. Books are fine...people are born to want to create.Books are great for learning and for enjoyment....Mark
Any Suggestions By Someone Who Liked The Great Divorce By C. S. Lewis?From Books & Authors Forum:

Lewis. anyone have any suggestions for another book I should pickup today that you think I might like based on my love for the Great Divorce?
Answer: If you've not read C. S. Lewis's The Screw tape Letters, you definitely should check it out. Then there's Lewis's Space Trilogy: Out of the Silent Planet, Leandra, That Hideous Strength. Though it's not fiction, you may find G. K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy interesting too. Then there are George MacDonald's Phantasy's and Lilith. Those come immediately to mind. Hope you find something you enjoy!
What'S The Difference Between C.S. Lewis And Nietzsche View On Pain?From Religion & Spirituality Forum:
What's the difference between C.S. Lewis and Nietzsche view on pain? So, I'm trying to find out what's the difference views on pain between C.S. Lewis and Nietzsche. If you could include more than the idea that C.S. Lewis believes in God and that Nietzsche is atheist.
Answer: Well, they both believed that pain had meaning. Lewis indicated that pain is God's way of shouting at us to get our attention. And Nietzsche's famous for the quote, "What does not kill me, makes me stronger." That's a similarity, so if you're asked to compare and contrast, you can use that. Of course, if you're simply contrasting, that's not much use.
Who Has Read C S Lewis'S Leandra Trilogy? What Did You Thank Of The Idea That Each World Has Its Own Spirit?From Mythology & Folklore Forum:
Who has read C S Lewis's Leandra trilogy? What did you thank of the idea that each world has its own spirit? Out of the Silent Planet Perelandra That Hideous Strength by C S Lewis to Faesson: I did read them, and liked 'That Hideous Strength' the best. The planetary spirits coming down to invest Merlin with their powers was an awesome bit of writing.
Answer: This idea is taken from medieval cosmology where there are 7 heavenly bodies with each one having its "spirit" or influence here on earth. For example, we have Mars, the Bringer of War, as in the classical music "The Planets" by Holst. Lewis would have been very familiar with this way of thinking as he was a professor of medieval literature and wrote a book about it (The Discarded Image). What he did in the Space Trilogy was to imagine the spirits of the planets to be personal and to be able to "come down" to us. I agree that "That Hideous Strength" is the best of the three and have read it several times. Lewis liked Leandra the best. You might be interested in reading "The Narnia Code" by Michael Ward in which he argues that Lewis used this medieval view of the universe as the way to organize The Chronicles of Narnia.

How Did C.S. Lewis Positively Affect Society?From Books & Authors Forum:
How did C.S. Lewis positively affect society? How did C.S. Lewis positively affect society? I know that his books provide a way for some people to "escape" their lives and to be entertained for a while, but did he positively affect people in other ways?
Answer: I think that it gives people a bit of hope, or positive thinking during hard times. I mean, look at why the children were there in that house, what caused them to have to be shipped from their parents? And during that time, of being separated from your parents, and probably frightened of those changes and what was happening in the world...and those children stuck together and were happy. I don't know if that really makes sense, or came out how I intended...?
How Many Times Is The Word Mere Used Throughout "Mere Christianity" By C.S Lewis?From Religion & Spirituality Forum:
How many times is the word mere used throughout "Mere Christianity" by C.S Lewis? I am reading this book and have found that C.S Lewis has used the word mere or merely many times. Although, I am not sure how many times it is used and I can't go back to count them, I was just curious is anybody really knew. Help is great!
Answer: Not sure, but the word is pivotal. Lewis is attempting to strip Christianity down to its essentials. This serves two purposes. (1) those not of the faith get a clearer picture of the faith, without all the trappings (2) those * of * the faith, but in different denominations, realize where they have strayed or where non-essential doctrine has crept in
