A Life of C.S. Lewis
  • By George Sayer
  • Foreword by Lyle W. Dorsett
Product Description

As I walked away from New Buildings, I found the man that Lewis had called -Tollers- sitting on one of the stone steps in front of the arcade.

-How did you get on?- he asked.

-I think rather well. I think he will be a most interesting tutor to have.-

-Interesting? Yes, he's certainly that, - said the man, who I later learned was J. R. R. Tolkien. -You'll never get to the bottom of him.-

Over the next twenty-nine years, author George Sayer's first impression about C. S. Lewis proved true. He was interesting; but he was more than just that. He was a devout Christian, gifted literary scholar, best-selling author, and brilliant apologist. Sayer draws from a variety of sources, including his close friendship with Lewis and the million-word diary of Lewis's brother, to paint a portrait of the man whose friends knew him as Jack.

Offering glimpses into Lewis's extraordinary relationships and experiences, Jack details the great scholar's life at the Kilns; days at Magdalen College; meetings with the Inklings; marriage to Joy Davidman Gresham; and the creative process that produced such world-famous works as the classic Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, and The Screwtape Letters.

This book is an intimate account of the man who helped--and through his works, continues to help--generations hear and understand the heart of Christianity.
