about

C S Lewis has become one of the most famous writers of the 20th century, but often those who love his childrens books are not aware of his science fiction, and frequently fans of both have not been introduced to his other writings on English literature, faith or fantasy. The A-Z of C S Lewis is a comprehensive introduction to C S Lewiss life, family, friends, career, marriage, and writings, and also to the worlds he created, the creatures he imagined, and the studies he delighted in, from Abhalljin, a distant island in Perelandra, Zardeenah, a character in The Horse and His Boy. Whether you are a devotee of all things Lewis, or just beginning to explore him and his world, this guide is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fine Addition To Any Christian Library The A – Z of C. S. Lewis is a comprehensive introduction to C. S. Lewis’s life, family, friens, career, marriage, and writings, as well as the worlds he created, the creatures that he imagined, and the studies he delighted in.  It’s also a volume that I wish that I had had close at hand when I was reading many of Lewis’s works.  The entries (in encyclopedic form, alphabetically listed) provide rich background for practically every important aspect of Lewis’s life, thought and works.  An asterisk clues the reader in to the fact that there is another important entry to be found elsewhere in this volume.   The entries provide enough information to enable the reader to better appreciate Lewis’s writings, without boring the reader or inundating the reader with a glut of inconsequential details.  And the hardbound volume, at a size of 8 X 5 ½ makes this an encyclopedia that is truly portable.  Whether you are just discovering C. S. Lewis, or are a seasoned scholar of his life and works, this volume will enrich your appreciation for the genius that is C. S. Lewis. 5 stars for an outstanding addition to a Christian library
