In the spirit of C. S. Lewis, whose own acceptance of Christ hinged on his understanding that Christ is the myth become fact, Louis Markos seeks to mine wisdom of eternal value from the great storehouses of Greco-Roman mythology and trace the links that bind those myths to the Bible and to the Christian life. And, as Lewis did, he seeks to help modern Christians reclaim myth as a vehicle of truth through which the presence of the Triune God can be discerned.
What makes the stories retold and analyzed in The Myth Made Fact of particular import is that they are foundational myths, ones meant to help us understand who we are, why we are here, and what our purpose and destiny are. They served that function for many generations of noble Greeks and Romans. When read through Christian eyes, they will do this and more, pointing us beyond the lustful and wrathful Olympian gods to the One Holy Creator who stands, like Aslan, at the back of all our stories.
