However, there are lots of homeschool high schoolers who have never heard of the Space Trilogy. This is Lewis’ Science-Fiction series, that really isn’t about Science-Fiction, but rather it is about deep ideas like the condition of man, theology and philosophy. (Just like the Chronicles of Narnia, the ideas are symbolized in the stories so you must look for them. Lewis is never preachy!)

So who should read the Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis?

  • Homeschool high school students who are learning to be thinkers, creators and do-ers.
  • Teens who are not afraid of big ideas and deep thinking.
  • Young people who want to learn to be more imaginative and creative.
  • AND anyone who enjoys the writings of C. S. Lewis!

Deep thoughts set in wonderfully imaginative settings and marvelously unique stories abound!

  1. Oh my goodness, Becky! I love the idea of studying it now. Actually, that is how the study guides came about. I loved the symbolism and meanings embedded throughout The Chronicles of Narnia, so wanted to find what Lewis was symbolizing in the Space Trilogy. SO much good stuff there.

  2. This was a favorite when I was in high school. I would really love to read it study it – by the way. I read it in the early seventies. I am now a senior citizen. Do you think your study guide be made for us older folks.? We, too, have a lot to learn, even now.
