Why do think C.S Lewis wrote an entire section on Christian Behavior?
I believe that Lewis wanted to convey the reality that there is a distinction between Christian behavior and the comportment exhibited by those that do not believe, or rather run contrary to what the Bible teaches.

In other words, I believe that he wanted to preach, and thus obey the Great Commission. Admittedly, and in my personal assessment, it is almost as if he truly enjoyed sharing his thoughts concerning this topic in this book.
