[ AUTHOR’S NOTE:
The intention of this chapter (and the book) is not to degrade or criticize Lewis. It’s rather to show that despite his brilliance, he may not have gotten everything right. Because evangelical Christians, as a whole, regard Lewis to be the greatest apologist (defender) of the Christian faith in modern history, these beliefs of his will surprise (and perhaps even shock) many evangelicals because they might be regarded as unbiblical by some evangelical standards.


God undoubtedly used Lewis despite whatever he may have believed that was inaccurate or questionable. Therefore, let’s extend grace to our fellow Christians when we find ourselves disagreeing with them. The book explores how to disagree in a Christ-like manner. ]
 
 
[Despite] his amazing contribution to the Christian faith, here are seven shocking beliefs that [C.S.] Lewis held.

1. Lewis believed in praying for the dead.

Here’s a quote:

Of course I pray for the dead. The action is so spontaneous, so all but inevitable, that only the most compulsive theological case against it would deter me. And I hardly know how the rest of my prayers would survive if those for the dead were forbidden.

I remember, as a child, trying to find my definitive King Arthur book. Stories of fell swords and dangerous magic had seized me like they do many other children. I was fascinated by the possibilities of mysterious power carried within Christian relics, fresh with the adventures of Indiana Jones were running amok in my imagination. Mostly, though, I was harboring a strange obsession with the tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It resonated within me, and I wanted more about Gawain and his bargains, steeped in chivalry and loyalty and hazy magic. I’m not sure I was ever sated – the efforts to find an Arthuriana found me Roger Lancelyn Green, whose Arthur and Gawain seemed lacking, but whose Robin Hood was so similar to the Robin Hood I saw in movies. Distracted, I seldom returned to Gawain and the castle in the forest.
