Book Written By An Anglican: Perelandra

For the reading challenge category “a book written by an Anglican” I read the second book of C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, Perelandra.

The second novel follows Ransom as he heads to the planet Perelandra, a young world inhabited only by the King and Lady and their creatures. Ransom is sent to fight on behalf of this fledgling world as evil forces attempt to ruin it. Again, Lewis’ imagination and creativity is impressive in this new world he creates. The focus of the novel is less the progression of the plot and more the exploration of the nature of man, temptation, and obedience. If you like interesting stories that deal with weighty philosophical themes, you’ll appreciate this book.
