C.S. Lewis–A Life by Alister McGrath

This is a book written by someone who discovered Lewis through his writings, for others who have come to know Lewis in the same way. … Why so? As Lewis emphasized throughout the 1930s, the important thing about authors is the texts that they write. What really matters is what those texts themselves say. Authors [Read More…]
