The Great Divorce by CS Lewis [REVIEW]

SYNOPSIS

C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce is a classic Christian allegorical tale about a bus ride from hell to heaven. An extraordinary meditation upon good and evil, grace and judgment, Lewis’s revolutionary idea in the The Great Divorce is that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis’ The Great Divorce will change the way we think about good and evil.

REVIEW

Like The Screwtape Letters this story takes everything we think we know about Heaven & Hell (good and evil) and puts an entirely different yet highly probable spin on it.

In one of the early chapters, Lewis said, “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, “Thy will be done”, and those to whom God says, “Thy will be done.”” That, dear reader, is the plain unvarnished truth.
