About-

It is commonly believed that C.S. Lewis was a theistic evolutionist, a conclusion based on a few statements that he made in The Problem of Pain and Mere Christianity. A careful study of his writings reveals, not only that for most of his life he was not a theistic evolutionist, but strongly opposed Darwinism, especially towards the end of his life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is absolutely first rate, the best thing I've read on the subject. . . . Bergman's research touches on every major issue related to Lewis and Darwinism. . . . I am very, very impressed by this work. Bergman has done something very important and timely, and I hope that this book will be read by many persons."
--Louis A. Markos, PhD, Professor; C. S. Lewis scholar; Author of four books on Lewis

"Dr. Bergman, in his inimitable style, has surfaced otherwise suppressed or not-easily-attainable historical information regarding C. S. Lewis's personal stance on creation versus evolution. . . . This new book . . . will help you understand how the great writer and theologian, C. S. Lewis, eventually came to his terms with 'hanging his hat' on the truth that we are all accountable to a Divine Creator."
--Bryce Gaudian, Development Manager, Agilis Corporation, Hayward, Minnesota

"What a happy surprise this book is! I was delighted to learn that C. S. Lewis rejected Darwinism in all its forms . . . Dr. Bergman has done a masterful (and highly entertaining) job of documenting Lewis's unfolding thoughts on the subject and proving that he was indeed an increasingly belligerent opponent of evolution theory."
--Kitty Foth-Regner, Author of Heaven Without Her: A Desperate Daughter's Search for the Heart of Her Mother's Faith
