Place of the Lion
Author: Charles Williams
Charles Williams had a genius for choosing strange and exciting themes for his novels and making them believable and profoundly suggestive of spiritual truths. Beneath the brilliant and imaginative surface of his "supernatural thrillers" lies a concealed and meticulously thought-out Christian message.

Charles Williams was one of the members of the Inklings, the group that included C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. He wrote several books chock full of Christian symbolism. In The Place of the Lion he explores many aspects of Christianity from Adam and Eve to the end of the the world. This is in the form of a story of a man and woman facing strange happenings in England, and the manner in which they are transformed along the way. This book takes effort, but it is very good reading.

Read this for our unofficial official book of the craziest I've read...You need to read up on Plato's Idea of Forms.

Might classify this as Christian horror?
