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

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.

About the Author: 

Colin Duriez was for many years a commissioning editor at Inter-Varsity Press UK. He has subsequently appeared as a commentator on DVDs of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and BBC television's The Worlds of Fantasy. He is also the author of The Inklings Handbook (with the late David Porter), J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship, and Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, and has contributed to definitive reference works relating to Tolkien such as The Tolkien Encyclopedia (Routledge).

My impression of the book:I am a devout fan of C.S. Lewis so for me this book is utterly perfect. Where else can you so easily access all of his famous sayings as well as be able to look up anything significant in his life? For anyone who is even remotely interested in Lewis this simply is a must! Colin Duriez is quite the authority on Lewis and Tolkien having written numerous books on each,all of which are wonderful.

This book would make an excellent present or would be a welcome addition to any library,to put up there right next to 'Mere Christianity' or "The Screwtape Letters".I simply cannot recommend this book enough.

I received a copy of this book from the publishers but the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
