Description

“He Came Down from Heaven” is a1938 treatise by Charles Williams. Within it, Williams uses his skills as a literary critic to delineate the biblical themes of exchange and substitution from the Fall, through the history of Israel, to the inauguration of the kingdom by Jesus Christ. He also explores how these themes defined Christian culture during Middle Ages with reference to Dante's ideal of romantic love. Charles Walter Stansby Williams (1886 – 1945) was a British theologian, novelist, poet, playwright, and literary critic. He was also a member of the “The Inklings”, a literary discussion group connected to the University of Oxford, England. They were exclusively literary enthusiasts who championed the merit of narrative in fiction and concentrated on writing fantasy. Contents include: “Divorce”, “In Time of War”, “Praise of Death”, “Lovers to Lovers”, “On the Way to Somerset”, “In Absence”, “Reunion”, “For a Pieta”, “Ballade of a Country Day”, “Ballade of Travellers”, “Ghosts”, etc. Other notable works by this author include: “The Greater Trumps” (1932), “War in Heaven” (1930), and “The Place of the Lion” (1931). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
