4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, thought provoking, and reassuring., 6 Dec 2001
This review is from: The Great Divorce (Paperback)
A very thought-provoking book, which cleverly marries the Catholic idea of purgatory with the Protestant view of Heaven and Hell. It seems to rather detach God from the proceedings, but for those worried about the implications of Hell it is reassuring- not that Hell is made out to be any less terrible, but the nature of Hell and the reasons for people being sent there are made all the more clear. Answers common objections made regarding the doctrine of Hell; maybe more interesting for the Christian, but strongly recommended to all. A Lewis classic.
I haven't given it five stars because it isn't very self-contained; it asks as well as answers a lot of questions. Perhaps this is just the nature of the afterlife as a topic, however.
