What did C.S. Lewis really think about gender roles? In this book, a widely recognized expert on male and female roles evaluates Lewis's understanding and presentation of gender, revealing that he ended his life thinking differently about gender than many of his followers assume. This is the first book to provide a close examination of Lewis's thought on gender and what it means for today. It addresses the tension between faith and science and offers insight into the continuing debate over gender relations, egalitarianism, and complementarianism. This book will appeal to readers of C. S. Lewis and those who are interested in gender issues.
Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen (PhD, Northwestern University) is professor of psychology and philosophy at Eastern University, where she is also resident scholar at the Center for Christian Women in Leadership. She is the author of Gender and Grace.
