The Four Loves summarizes four kinds of human love-affection, friendship, erotic love, and the love of God. Masterful without being magisterial, this book's wise, gentle, candid reflections on the virtues and dangers of love draw on sources from Jane Austen to St. Augustine.

The Four Loves summarizes four kinds of human love-affection, friendship, erotic love, and the love of God. The chapter on charity (love of God) may be the best thing Lewis ever wrote about Christianity. Consider his reflection on Augustine's teaching that one must love only God, because only God is eternal, and all earthly love will someday pass away

A comprehensive guide to Lewis's writings and ideas.

I can't imagine doing research on C. S. Lewis without this book. Sure, you could google, flip pages, or take a look through "The Quotable Lewis," but this index delivers exactly what it promises: a comprehensive guide to Lewis's writings and ideas. This is the Lewis scholar's secret weapon. This is the tool you need in order to stop haggling and nitpicking and speculating and--finally!-- actually find out what Lewis himself said about it. Indispensable.

Mr. Merkel finds that Goffar takes "academic liberty" in applying some of Lewis's words to topics that he did not address. So far as it goes, this is a perfectly legitimate concern. He further believes that this constitutes the "propogation of a personal agenda", which is an interesting position given the quotes which she has selected under this heading.
It is, I think, a mis-reading of the Index to imply that all seven entries under "abortion" suggest that Lewis would have supported a pro-abortion position. Certainly some of the entries make such a suggestion (or at least lean in that direction), but others suggest the opposite (the references to God's view that birth is important, that death is an evil, that many sins also harm others and should thus be illegal).
In my view, all but one of the entries under the heading of Abortion were reasonably placed. They do not directly address the topic, and Goffar makes that very clear, both by the ** notation, and by parenthetical references to what Lewis _was_ writing about. The reader would never get the idea that Lewis had been actually writing about abortion, but does see some ideas of Lewis's that may shed light on the abortion controversy, which is the value of such entries.
On a topic about which Lewis wrote in volume, such as the nature of Christ, there is no need to extrapolate his ideas. On a topic about which he did not write at all, however, such extrapolation gives an idea as to how he might see the issue, or general concerns which might apply to one position or another.
As a final note, should the reader wish to read only those remarks of Lewis which directly address the topic at hand, this is easily done, as the others are conspicuously marked. No "close inspection" is required.

As an indivual who likes to read and quote C.S. Lewis, I have often thought about tackling the task that Janine Goffar has accomplished with this volume. Organized alphabecially, like a concordance, usually with a brief quote on the topic at hand, the reader is referred to one or more works by Lewis where the subject is covered in more detail. This volume would be a welcome addition to the collection of any serious reader (or quoter) of the theological works of Lewis, who introduced many to the concept of "mere Christianity."

I am deeply disappointed with Janine Goffar's index of C.S. Lewis's writing. On the very first page of this book, Goffar catalogs seven entries under the specific topic of "abortion" suggesting that C.S. Lewis would support a pro-choice position.
Upon closer inspection, we determine that Ms. Goffar takes academic liberty in applying the "ideas" of C.S. Lewis to topics that he did not even address. This is not scholarship, it is simply the propagation of a personal agenda under the cover of scholarship. A thoughtful reading of "The Abolition of Man" might have obviated such an extrapolation against Lewis's ideas.
In spiking this book with her own agenda, Ms. Goffar has been unjust to Lewis and the student who buys it. After reading page one of this book, I had learned much about Ms. Goffar, and very little about C.S. Lewis. As an index this book may be useful, but for a summary of Lewis's ideas buy his books, and not this one.
