In recent days many evangelical Christians have been intrigued and enriched by the reexamination of the works of C. S. Lewis. As you probably know, C. S. Lewis was among the most notable Christian writers of the 20th century. His writings include nonfiction as well as fiction. Perhaps he is best known for his fictional books in a series called The Chronicles of Narnia. During the last few months I had the opportunity to read some interesting books that have been published simultaneous to the release of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe as a motion picture.
Perhaps no one alive today knew C. S. Lewis as well as his stepson, Douglas Gresham. His most recent biography of the famous apologist and literary scholar is entitled Jack’s Life. The essence of this tribute is summed up in the statement: “Jack was the finest man and the best Christian I have ever known. I loved him and I cherish his memory.” This biography adds a personal flavor to the increasing amount of information written about this 20th-century Christian voice. It is well worth the time to reflect upon this immensely personal account of Lewis.
