5.0 out of 5 stars The True, Good and Beautiful! 26 Jan 2011
By Achilles - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nicholas of Cusa tells us that we have it exactly backwards today when it comes to learning the Truth. We seem to think that we consume truths and they become a part of us, but it is the contrary, the Truth consumes us and we become a part of the Truth.

Professor Markos in Restoring Beauty: The Good, the True, and the Beautiful in the Writings of C.S. Lewis encourages us convincingly that Nicholos of Cusa was right and that to discover this truth is a matter of putting things in their proper order. To do this we need guides like Professor Markos to lead us to the truths that C.S. Lewis explicates in his wonderful writings.

Teachers and parents alike will find this book of immense value if we can stand the shock of hearing truths that contradict the spirit of our age. We are all on a journey of discovering the Truth by which we are to be consumed if we are to be transformed into the humans we were meant to be. If for nothing else but to better instruct our children, we can trust that Professor Markos will light a fire in our hearts and the desire to read and reread C. S. Lewis' works will grow with our understanding. Don't pass up the chance to learn from these great teachers. Let Professor Markos take you on a journey to a deeper understanding of C.S. Lewis' works that are clearly an antidote to the ills of modern society.

Of particular note in our quest for the Good, True and Beautiful, professor Markos begins with Lewis' space trilogy, moves through the Chronicles of Narnia and then takes us through Lewis' brilliant and much overlooked works that illuminate the true nature of education and very properly illustrates that we have made an idol of knowledge and in most cases missed the mark in our efforts to become educated.

As a final treat, the second to last essay, Screwtape's Millennial Toast- Professor Markos extends the account of Screwtape in an engaging and profound way. Screwtape is very pleased with their progress at the dawn of this new millennium. I highly recommend this book as an edifying and very enjoyable field trip through the mind of C.S. Lewis, and I can assure there are valuable treasures to be discovered through this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but worthwhile read 13 Sep 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I heard Professor Markos speak at a convention so I had to read his book. Don't plan a quick read; enter with the expectation of learning something about C.S. Lewis and yourself. I especially recommend this book to fellow educators, but anyone examining Christian values will want to read this book.

By P. S. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not had time to read this book as yet; however, every thing I have read by this author is great. He spends much time in research and what is amazing, if you have a question or a comment, he will take the time to respond.
