Overview The prolific author of many classic masterpieces - C.S. Lewis believed that his sharp mind and rich imagination were to be disciplined by a sense of responsiblity to the wider world.
Publishers Description As one of the most creative intellectuals of the twentieth century, C. S. Lewis transcended all literary, philosophical, and religious boundaries. A world-renowned scholar of medieval literature at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, he wrote and lectured in such clear, direct language that ordinary people were able to fully comprehend the truths he extolled. The prolific author of many classic masterpieces - including The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, soon to be released as a feature movie and one of several volumes in The Chronicles of Narnia - he also lived a life that was as compelling as his work. This book offers a clear view of the character of this extraordinarily gifted man. Lewis believed that his sharp mind and rich imagination were to be accompanied by a sense of responsibility to the wider world. Thus this volume demonstrates why, two generations after his death, Lewis continues to be numbered among our best-selling authors and most influential thinkers.

Fresh Insight from a First-Rate Lewis Scholar Oct 10, 2007
Author Terry Glaspey has devoted his lifetime to English literature, and is a particularly accomplished scholar of the life and writings of C.S. Lewis. Here Glaspey focuses his well-polished prose on helping the reader better understand the relationship of Lewis's work to its historical context.
