Is that in this book? Steve Yes, that was in this book, but that took place in hell, not heaven. See all 3 questions about El gran divorcio…. Lists with This Book.

El gran divorcio: un sueño

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. What follows are a bunch of conversations that the narrator overhears. As mentioned, the story is didactic in tone, but when Mr.

Lewis hits a strong point, it is a kick in the pants. This text is a thinking novel, not a diversionary one. There are one or two well-drawn characterizations, but the narrator I think by choice is not one of them.

I believe the narrator is a sort of stand in for C. Lewis says more in those 4 pages then most writers do in I c.s.lewiss lived this experience, which is perhaps why it was so impactful for me. In this short text chapter 11 seems to be the meat of the book.

That sentence makes this text seem simplistic.

El gran divorcio: Un sueño by C.S. Lewis (3 star ratings)

It certainly is not, do not be fooled. In chapter 11 we also observe a scenario in which we see how natural love can be warped by our humanity and turned into something quite ugly. It is pretty heady stuff, and disturbingly unsettling. I think this might be true. It will greatly aid you in seeing what Mr. Lewis is doing with this text. This novel has depth, but does not get bogged down in it. I read it quickly; divocio made me stop and think.


I will take that as a good thing in almost divorcik book. Lewis, in my view, provides the best explanations of how heaven works, or v.s.lewis specifically how it can be that a loving God and hell can coexist. What happens is that when one is presented with God, c.slewis says: True idolatry, and quite real even today. I wonder if it really is that simple. And it is from this perspective that I suspect Lewis makes it too simple, that Lewis calls us back to a universe that never really did hold it all together, even if it did once exist.

But yes, the Lizard image is quite wonderful. What I would give for a nice stallion! View all 3 comments.

A well written, interesting story by C. Lewis who takes a very original approach to laying out his take on the classic story of the nature of sin and unhappiness and the path to redemption and true happiness. You can really feel Lewis’ passion for his subject matter in this story which makes the narrative even more compelling. Hear me out here. I know this is a beloved book, but I just can’t rate it highly. I had never read this before, but I knew it was fictional, like Screwtape Letters, with the topic being heaven and especially hell.

In fact, I found that it might have been quite unhelpful at times, especially grqn Christian truth. I honestly admit this to people all the time: I have literally wept over Revelation Now, I do believe it because Jesus so clearly taught it, and his apostles followed clearly in his footsteps. I am not tempted toward Universalism, but I see the appeal of Annihilationism. But once again, the Bible simply will not have it.

Eternal, conscious torment is the biblical doctrine. I say all that because that makes me approach this book with an even bigger hesitancy.

I divorcoo the doctrine of hell is so serious and frightening. Again, what the Bible teaches is quite clear and solemn. And so, I think that the human mind is understandably prone to try to minimize what Jesus and his apostles taught.

And I think that Lewis in this divorccio did that a bit. But still, I think he romanticized hell and tried to take the biblical bite and seriousness out of it. Lewis I know talks like this in his other writings. And I actually agree with him here.

We see this in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. However, what Lewis misses is the torment that they still face there. He wanted at any cost to tell his relatives to not come to the same place.


Lewis misses this last point in his description of hell usually. That all being said, I do think when Lewis talked about heaven, he was fascinating and helpful as he usually is. His ideas of joy, solidity, and brightness all were intriguing. His God-centered emphasis on heaven was spot on.

And his picturing of humanity glorified was beautiful. It is for these that this book is a 3 or even 4 star. And this can be very detrimental to the faith of Christians.

His insights about human self-centeredness and idolatry were great. But I think he pictures hell way too lightly. And I think his view of hell—even with it being just an analogy and dream—can lead one away from the weeping and prayerfulness that should occur when one considers the true, biblical teaching of eternal conscious torment. People would be much happier and glorious in heaven, and it sounds terrifying to be in hell forever.

Eternal, conscious torment, like in Revelation But since it is true, I will weep, I will pray. I want no one to go there. He is clever on the selfishness and idolatry of man, but he blunts the tragic and terrifying truth of hell.

I liked this book. Some parts were sort of confusing,but overall it was pretty good. I am going to give it another shot in a few years.

Had to read this book for school, but I liked it! Very thought provoking and convicting. It seems like just about every contemporary, evangelical Christian book I read these days has at least one quote from Lewis.

This shows, if nothing else, the tremendous influence of his writings upon the Christian community. Lewis paints himself into a theological conundrum in terms of an orthodox Protestant interpretation in this short novel by seeming to endorse the existence of purgatory and hence, the possibility of a chance to escape Hell by those already consigned there.

In his defense, seeing as Lewis was of the Protestant persuasion, the last page makes it clear that the narrator was sleeping and hence the story was merely a dream. Viewed from this perspective, Lewis didn’t set out to write anything close to a systematic theology. The most oft quoted line:
