Description

Just as readers have been transfixed by the stories, characters, and deeper meanings of Lewis's timeless tales in The Chronicles of Narnia, most find this same allure in his classic Space Trilogy. In these fantasy stories for adults, we encounter, once again, magical creatures, a world of wonders, epic battles, and revelations of transcendent truths.

Perelandra, the second novel in Lewis's science fiction trilogy, tells of Dr. Ransom's voyage to the paradise planet of Perelandra, or Venus, which turns out to be a beautiful Eden-like world. He is horrified to find that his old enemy, Dr. Weston, has also arrived and is putting him in grave peril once more. As the mad Weston's body is taken over by the forces of evil, Ransom engages in a desperate struggle to save the innocence of Perelandra!

    One of the best books, I’ve read in a long time and I have enjoyed it. They should make the space trilogy into movies, like they did with Chronicles of Narnia. Two of my friends named Stephen Frendl and Mark Frendl are huge fans of CS Lewis books. They read all the Chronicles of Narnia and Space Trilogy books.

    this book helped me understand why man would fall from grace in the first place. why would adam and eve want to rebel against God when they should have had everything they needed pre-fall? lewis will help you understand why.

    One of the most beautiful books I've ever read. Not a relaxing book to fall asleep to or simply read for casual purposes. Much theology and philosophy integrated throughout its pages. Highly recommend it to anybody!
