    Dear Dr. Clark;

    I have just finished your work, “C.S. Lewis, A Guide To His Theology.” Your work was very insightful and I learned a great deal.

    I do have one question if I may ask. Lewis’ view of purgatory and the Pauline concept of the believer being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord is proving hard for me to make compatible with one and the other. Is it reconciled by the fact that God is transcendant from time, though the above does seem to suggest an immediancy in that relationship between mortality and eternality?

    Thank you sir for taking my comment and I look forward to hearing from you.

    God bless, David E. Clarke
