C. S. Lewis is an extremely good theologian who does his work for the thoughtful lay person. But his writings reflect his erudite understanding of the great classics of literature, historical theology, philosophy, and other disciplines. Lewis says in Mere Christianity that theology is like a map. We may get where we're going without it, but it is much easier to use the map. The map of Christian theology is drawn over the early centuries of the church as the believing community interprets the Bible and its experience of God.
Of course, the ultimate goal of theology, according to Lewis, is practical: to draw us into the life of God, or St. Gregory of Nazianzus (329-374 AD), called it, 'the Great Dance.' I know no theme deeper or more pervasive in Lewis than our need to get the steps right, to join the dance once again. In 'Meditations in a Tool Shed,' Lewis says that there is a distinction between looking at a beam of light and looking along the beam of light. He is speaking of looking at reason or using reason-a passage that forms part of his great case that presence of rationality argues for the truth of theism. We will be doing a lot of looking in this course, largely, 'looking at' Lewis himself. But let us also try to 'look along' the same line of sight as Lewis, to see things-God, humanity, spiritual life, and a host of other things-as Lewis saw them. This means attempting to step inside Lewis's worldview and learning to interpret fundamental realities the way he did and to deploy his distinctive strategies for engaging other worldviews. In effect, we will learn to think Christianly by learning to think along Christianly with Lewis.
