Book Review: The Soul of C.S. Lewis


THE SOUL OF C.S. LEWIS

Author Jerry Root
Produced by . Livingstone
Author Wayne Martindale
Author Linda Washington 

ISBN:978-1-4143-2566-8

Release:August 2010



The words of C.S. Lewis always seem to speak directly to my soul.  His ideas and beliefs and the magical way he shares them awaken creativity, imagination and life from the center of my being.  I cannot read enough of his thoughts.

This compilation of quotes from twenty-six of Lewis's works was a brilliant idea.  The authors  masterfully expound on some of Lewis's best ideas taken from the books represented.  Written like a devotional, its is easy to pick from any page and start reading, as each page offers treasures of its own.

The Soul of C.S. Lewis was meant for "the seasoned Lewis enthusiast, for those who want to be introduced to Lewis, or for anyone looking for personal growth." The reader, no matter which category he finds himself in, will surely benefit from this book and have a hard time closing its pages.  It is one that will quickly become a favorite to its readers and added to their home libraries to be read over and over again.

Shelly,
I JUST BOUGHT this book last week. C.S. Lewis is my favorite author. I was introduced to him at a summer college camp. (That was about 35 years ago...) The speaker used examples from the Chronicles of Narnia to illustrate his points. I remember being absolutely "enraptured." I went out right after that and bought all the books, and read them in a week. I then proceeded to "devour" most of everything else he wrote. He was indeed, a magical writer, and a brilliant apologist. God used him mightily. It's such fun to find that you are a fan, too!

ASLAN LIVES!!

I love C.S. Lewis. Thanks for the great suggestion.

I would love to read through everything he has ever written as a sort of online book club.
