C.S. Lewis and Christian Postmodernism : Word, Image, and Beyond Paperback / softback


Employing a postmodernist literary approach, Kyoko Yuasa identifies C.S.

Lewis both as an antimodernist and as a Christian postmodernist who tells the story of the Gospel to twentieth- and twenty-first-century readers.

Lewis is popularly known as an able Christian apologist, talented at explaining Christian beliefs in simple, logical terms.

His fictional works, on the other hand, feature expressions that erect ambiguous borders between non-fiction and fiction, an approach similar to those typical in postmodernist literature.

While postmodernist literature is full of micronarratives that deconstruct the Great Story, Lewis's fictional world shows the reverse: in his world, micronarratives express the Story that transcends human understanding.

Lewis's approach reflects both his opposition to modernist philosophy, which embraces solidified interpretation, and his criticism of modernised Christianity.

Here Yuasa brings to the fore Lewis's focus on the history of interpretation and seeks a new model.
