The A-Z of C S Lewis: A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings Hardcover
A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings
Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis’s death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis’ works, from his literary criticism to Narnia
C. S. Lewis’s work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work—his children’s stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis’s life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man—written in 1943 and described as “almost my favorite”—to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life.
Colin Duriez was for many years a commissioning editor at Inter-Varsity Press UK. He has subsequently appeared as a commentator on DVDs of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and BBC television's The Worlds of Fantasy. He is also the author of "The Inklings Handbook" (with the late David Porter), "J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship," and "Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings," and has contributed to definitive reference works relating to Tolkien such as "The Tolkien Encyclopedia" (Routledge).
My Review:
This is a nice book of the life and writing of one of the greats. This is strictly a reference book but covers everything. C.S. Lewis was a great writer and this book will only magnify that fact and you go through this book and realize the scope of his work.
It will encourage you to pick up one of C S Lewis's books that maybe you haven't read before. This would make a great gift for a Lewis fan.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Litfuse Publicity Group for the purpose of this honest review.
