The A-Z of C.S. Lewis {review}

The A-Z of C.S. Lewis by Colin Druiez

 

A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis' works, from his literary criticism to Narnia.

C. S. Lewis's work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work-his children's stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man-written in 1943 and described as "almost my favorite"-to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life.

My Thoughts:

C.S. Lewis is one of my all time favorite authors. Mainly because of the Chronicles of Narnia series. However I have begun to read some of his other works and I have to say that I just love his books.

The A-Z of C.S. Lewis is a must have book for any fan of C.S. Lewis. It is such a wonderful resource! The book is an encyclopedia of all of C. S. Lewis’ work! It is truly a wealth of information and facts about his life and writing.  Colin Duriez has done a wonderful job of compiling all of this information into one book!

The A-Z of C.S. Lewis now has a permanent place on my book shelves! It is a wonderful resource!

Stop by the Litfuse website for more information about this wonderful book!
