As we shall see, modern culture is for Lewis exceptional in this regard, namely, in neglecting or repressing its moral and spiritual content. Without such a culture, religion in general and Christianity in particular will appear, if not as absolute lunacy, at least arbitrary or excessive. Even more, they will be distorted in ways that allow those who do accept religion or Christianity, especially when presented in radically anti-cultural terms, to use them in the service of modern obsessions with exceptionalism, self- or group-identity, and power.
It is not detached from common, everyday life by being confined to the heavens, institutions, or people’s interior lives. He deals with objections to Christianity that are lodged in the culture, but he does not see an easy passage from nonbelief to Christian faith. The difﬁculties in a Christian account of things go beyond the standard objections to Christian belief pervasive in modern culture.

Lewis’s conversion equally does not focus on the church, its authority, sacraments, or communal life. As one of his closest friends at Cambridge put it, “neither in conversation nor in his works did he show much interest in organized religion. ”21 This does not mean that he is antichurch; rather, Lewis the convert locates himself not first of all in an institution or community but, rather, in a world differently constituted and differently understood. Conversion did not call him out of the culture and into the church but to work at the complex relation of Christian beliefs, values, and norms to the culture.
