Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: ""Reading Charles Williams is an unforgettable experience."" -Saturday Review ""It is satire, romance, thriller, morality, and glimpses of eternity all rolled into one."" -The New York Times "" . . . One of the most gifted and influential Christian writers England has produced this century."" -Time Magazine Author and scholar Charles Williams (1886-1945) joined, in 1908, the staff of the Oxford University Press, the publishing house in which he worked for the rest of his life. Throughout these years, poetry, novels, plays, biographies, history, literary criticism, and theology poured from his pen. At the beginning of the Second World War the publishing house was evacuated to Oxford where, in addition to his own writing and his editorial work for the Press, he taught in the University.

About: The key to Williams' mystically oriented theological thought, Descent into Hell (arguably Williams' greatest novel) is a multidimensional story about human beings who shut themselves up in their own narcissistic projections, so that they are no longer able to love, to 'co-inhere.
