Title: C. S. Lewis : the problem of pain in a secular age
Authors: Lee, Agnes

Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: C. S. Lewis responds to a type of suffering that is characterized by the secular society it exists within. This paper looks at the relationship between suffering, the problem of suffering, and secularization. Understanding how Christianity has moved through landscapes of enchantment to disenchantment will shed more light on the nature of the problem of suffering in Lewis’ day. We will then elaborate on Lewis’ approach towards this problem of suffering–– the nuanced technique of traditional theological bulwarks carried through the vehicle of the imagination. In this sense, Lewis appropriates the Modernist creed of “making it new”, reformulating the form and content of the Christian message to answer the cries of a specific age.
