This book described Lewis conversion to Christianity using an allegory. It parallels many of the same themes in *Surprised by Joy,* namely that joy (or sehnsucht) is inevitable and can be filled rightly or wrongly. The reader discovers that Christianity does not get rid of utter desire and joy, but transforms them. In the meanwhile, using John, Lewis tells us how he escaped the snares of various penny-ante yet at the time culturally respectable secular philosophies.The good:Lewis showed how Christianity rehabilitates Plato (or Carl Jung? The book wasnt always clear).

The discussion of archetype and ectype was brilliant.Reason personified as a female. One is reminded of Joan dArc. Reasons introduction in the book is one of sheer awe. John is caught in the muck and slime of his own foolishness, then reason appears like lightning from a clear sky, sword in hand to rescue him. But Lewis is careful. He knows that Reason has limits and the reader sees what Reason can and cant do for the Christian.The bad:The book moved too quickly.

Most people will have no idea what he is talking about half of the time. But Lewis recognized this as well. Still, definitely required reading for the Lewis afficionado.
