C. S. Lewis's dazzling allegory about Heaven and Hell—and the chasm fixed between them—is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, where we discover that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside.

In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon in Hell and embarks on an incredible voyage to Heaven. Anyone in Hell is invited on board, and anyone may remain in Heaven if he or she so chooses. But do we really want to live in Heaven? This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C. S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil and on what God really offers us.

It took a few pages before I was able to wrap my mind around the fantastical story telling style however this is more a reflection of my own mental constraints than any deficit on the author's part. Lewis' ability to explore philosophy and theology with such whimsical allegory is extraordinary. While concurrently entertaining us with what appears to be a whimsical representation of Heaven and Hell, Lewis fearlessly invites us to actually challenge and consider our own personal hermeneutics of what the essence of love is-and is not-and by virtue of this, what the essence and power of Heaven can and ideally should be.

C.S. Lewis' concept of Heaven and Hell was written in such a knowledgeable way as well as faithfully to Christian fundamentals I would not be surprised if his whole perception of such celestials were pitch perfectly accurate.
