Who was Prince Caspian? What were C. S. Lewis's views on pain? Who were his close friends? What did he say about the imagination? Explore the world of the twentieth century's greatest popularizer of the Christian faith.

C. S. Lewis was one of the foremost writers and thinkers of the twentieth century. His unique ability to combine reasoning and imagination--capturing your mind and taking you into a richer world of thought and experience that points to God--is revealed in the great variety of his writings from allegories to apologetics."

Colin Duriez, an authority on C. S. Lewis, has laid out in an easy-to-follow encyclopedic format essential information on Lewis's life, relationships, and beliefs, as well as the main themes and characters in his work. Many entries are cross-referenced so that you can follow through on the ideas and subjects that capture your interest. And to encourage your exploration and discovery of Lewis's world, substantial essays on the major aspects of his life, a complete list of his works, and a guide that categorizes many of the related articles are also included.

Whether you are wanting to know more about Lewis's many " religious" writings or his fictional classics, his primary concerns or even the debates in which he participated, this book will prove to be an invaluable tool.

" This is one of the most useful books I know. I look for excuses to read it." --Walter Hooper, Literary Advisor to the C. S. Lewis Estate
