Inspiring and informative
- Chris Leech
Thorough and well written
Unexpected, thorough and insightful
I recently listened to a biography of Stalin and both the CS Lewis book and the Stalin book are good at weaving the story of these men into what was going on in the world at the time.
He brings a calm, quiet but steady voice which adds to the character of Lewis.
More to him than you thought
CS Lewis was a genius who led a complicated and often difficult life. His writings both Christian and other were often exceptional and his ability to communicate well with others who are much less intelligent than he was is what makes him stand out. A promise in his early years shaped a lot of his life unexpectedly. I would thoroughly recommend this book and many others that Lewis wrote himself.
