C.S. Lewis is very much in the ballpark. I’ve never actually read his Narnia series, but I grew up with a toxic form of Christianity, so in my college years his Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters proved a breath of fresh air.
Thanks for highlighting Lewis’ use of the word “beyond” – and I especially love “. . .a perspective that challenged them to rise above a mere animal existence and fulfill their human potential.” I have no doubt Campbell would concur.
