We are up to chapter 3 in our discussion of Mere Theology: A Guide to the Thought of C. S. Lewis. Here are some discussion questions to get us started on this chapter on the Trinity:
- Do you think Norman Pittenger's criticism of Lewis's teaching on the Trinity was fair or not?
- Does Lewis's explanation of how the doctrine of the Trinity developed seem reasonable?
- Which one of Lewis's Trinitarian analogies best helps you to understand and embrace the Christian doctrine of the Trinity: the cube? the prayer closet? the books? the relationship between imagination, image and will? love? or the Great Dance? Why?
- What do you think of the Trinitarian images in Lewis's fiction? Do these images make the Trinity more attractive or understandable to you?
