Abstract:

Profiles the life and works of influential English author C.S. Lewis.

C.S. Lewis has been called the greatest Christian writer of the 20th century. Few writers have touched so many lives and excited so many fans. Since his death in 1963, more than 200 million copies of his books have been sold worldwide and none has ever been out of print. His books have entertained millions and helped countless others on spiritual journeys of their own. In this one-of-a-kind "oral history," several people who knew C.S. Lewis explore how a provincial Oxford don emerged as one of the most powerful literary figures of his time. Written as a companion to the first American documentary film on Lewis' life and work, this book records conversations with Lewis' stepson, with the editor of several collections on Lewis, and with noted Lewis scholars as they marvel at the man who gave the world such best-selling classics as The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, Perelandra, and A Grief Observed. - Jacket.
