In spite of the flurry of new books on C. S. Lewis, few volumes offer really new insights and succeed in showing the relevance of Lewis's ideas for the issues that face Christians today. David Mills's fine collection is one of these rare exceptions. The focus of Mills's book is witness. It is divided into two sections. "The Character of a Witness" explores what it was about Lewis's life and work that made him an effective witness to orthodox Christianity in a hostile century. "The Work of a Witness" is a very broad survey of how Lewis witnessed. There are implicit subdivisions in this second section that could have been made explicit in the book's structure: Some of its essays concern the sources or antecedents of Lewis's views; others look at how Lewis tried to make Christianity comprehensible in a secular age; and still others deal with perhaps the most important apologetic task in a pluralistic age by showing how Lewis argued for the superiority of Christianity against its many competitors.
