There is something bigger than us. Something bigger than us holds values like mercy, courage, love, and truth; and something bigger than us defines these virtues: God. In this book, C. S. Lewis implores us to look to God as the source of truth and humanity. As Challenge IV parents prepare their students for the next chapter of life, The Abolition of Man prepares parents for great conversations about the values of Christian leadership.

The Abolition of Man remains one of Lewis's most prophetic works as social relativism has been uncritically adopted by modern thought--in religion, education, and government--opening the door to the post-modern claim that people are free to create their own reality through a sheer act of the will.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.
