When the Eternal Can Be Met
The Bergsonian Theology of Time in the Works of C. S. Lewis, T. S. Eliot, and W. H. Auden
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This study is yet more proof that C. S. Lewis is finally coming into his deserved recognition as a formidable twentieth-century author and intellect. Latta's fine study breaks new ground in identifying how the 'dinosaur' Lewis also belonged to his own age."
--Jameela Lares, Professor of English, University of Southern Mississippi
"It is rare to find a thinker who transcends disciplines in such a seamless way. Latta's work is theologically deep, philosophically sound, and literarily astute. Many pastors may not readily see the implications of a philosophy of 'time' as it relates to ministry, but When the Eternal Can Be Met wisely demonstrates the significance for any thoughtful Christian. This book nourishes my soul, equips my mind, and gives me apt words to speak to my congregation."
--Jim Shultz, Millennial Pastor, Hope Church
"Latta's work here is important--not least because it helps place C. S. Lewis in context with his modernist contemporaries. For too long have scholars read Lewis in isolation from the thinkers to whom he responded. When the Eternal Can Be Met helps paint a picture of Lewis, who wrote in the same world and about the same ideas with which Bergson, Auden, and Eliot wrestled."
