C.S. Lewis is one of Christendom’s most beloved authors, due to works like Mere Christianity, A Grief Observed, and of course, The Chronicles of Narnia. However, the Chronicles have resulted in Lewis being criticized for being “monumentally disparaging of women” (as Philip Pullman put it). However, a recent book by Monika Hilder aims to defend Lewis’s writings as presenting a “radical theological feminism.”
