Deeper Magic: The Theology Behind the Writings of C.S. Lewis is both exciting and engaging in its exploration of Christian thought in general and Christian themes in particular, found in the fictional and nonfictional works of C.S. Lewis. This book would sit comfortably on the shelf with other first-rate Evangelical Christian interpretations of the works of individual Inklings, such as Ralph Wood’s The Gospel According to Tolkien: Visions of the Kingdom in Middle-Earth or the works of Matthew Dickerson including his Narnia and the Fields of Arbol: The Environmental Vision of C.S. Lewis. Like the authors of these books, Donald Williams nicely balances between presenting Christian thought and discussing its presentation within the works of C.S. Lewis. The text speaks to the reader with a clear, conversational style worthy of C.S. Lewis himself. With that said, Deeper Magic would also fit on the same shelf with any of the works of C.S. Lewis.
