The Cosmic Trilogy is a remarkable work of fantasy, demonstrating yet again the powerful imagination of C.S Lewis.
OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET
Dr Ransom, a Cambridge academic is kidnapped and transported to another planet, Malacandra (Mars). His captors are plotting to plunder the planet's treasures and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the rational creatures they have found there. Through the Malacandrans, spiritual truths concerning the Earth are uncovered.
On Perelandra (Venus), Dr Ransom finds himself battling to preserve a second Eden from the evil forces present in the possessed body of his enemy Dr Weston.
THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH
Back on Earth Jane Studdock is disturbed by prophetic nightmares while her husband, Mark, is drawn into the National Institute for Co-ordinated Experiments which is engaged in a plan to recreate mankind in the image of slave robots.
These are thrilling stories with a spiritual message. Through the fantasy of other worlds, Lewis explores the issues of good and evil, God and the devil and ponders the future of the human race.
