Lewis felt his imaginary trip to Hell and Heaven was far better than his book The Screwtape Letters, which became a classic. Readers will discover the many literary and biblical influences Lewis utilized in writing his brilliant novel.

Praise for C.S. Lewis Goes to Heaven
"If you want a great guide to The Great Divorce, you can’t do better than David Clark, who introduces readers to a host of fascinating historical and literary characters – illuminating this popular novel with theological insight and devotional delight. Clark's tour of C. S. Lewis' version of heaven and hell provides a truly refreshing holiday."
