Book Review: The Soul of C.S. Lewis
Being a fan of the works of C.S. Lewis, I was drawn towards this book. "A meditative journey through twenty-six of his best-loved writings" (so says the subtitle), it is part biography, part Cliff's notes, and part devotional. It is a great book to have alongside one of Lewis's great works, to learn more about the man, his theology, the apologetics he conveys through his writing, and the scripture behind his ideas. C.S. Lewis was a genius and this book celebrates not only his life, but his biblical theology. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading it many times over. All of my children will be introduced to The Soul of C. S. Lewis when they are ready for his works. If you want to know more about C.S. Lewis, understand his writings more fully, or are seeking spiritual growth, I recommend this book.
