The 50th Anniversary of the death of Clive Staples “Jack” Lewis has provided an opportunity for much reflection by scholars of his life and works. I’ve had the opportunity to review several, and they have all been excellent. This book is no exception. There is one caveat – when you sit down to read this book, make sure you have a pen (for writing notes in the ample space provided on facing pages and margins) and a highlighter (for highlighting the passages that WILL be leaping off the page).
This is not light reading. This is important reading. But that does not mean that it is boring. Alister McGrath has been “reading” C.S. Lewis for over 40 years, and his insights into the thought of C.S. Lewis help the rest of us to really “get” what this wonderful writer and apologist was trying to communicate.
And don’t let the small footprint of this book fool you; that merely aids in portability. When you open this volume, you will be immersed into a world of thought and ideas that will challenge you to the very core of your being.
As I said . . . this is important reading. It requires reflection; you may find yourself reading passages over and over to comprehend the truths being reflected. Don’t stop. It’s worth it. It really is.
5 stars for a challenging book that will change your life for the better
