Review 1 for Perelandra, Space Trilogy Series

Great retelling of the Eden story -C.S. Lewis was a deep thinker and sometimes repeat reads are required to understand all that he is communicating through the characters. Worth the cost of the trilogy.

Review 2 for Perelandra, Space Trilogy Series

The best of the Trilogy. A valuable philosophical reflection on Genesis 1-3. Those who are a bit squeamish about introducing mythology into Christian worldview may be dissatisfied. A short, readable, thought provoking fiction.
