Edited by James Como.
In this intimate, candid, and sometimes surprising community biography of the celebrated author and Christian apologist, twenty-four men and women who knew C.S. Lewisâ€”as teacher, colleague, friendâ€”offer their reminiscences and impressions of the complex man behind the critical and academic acclaim.
Through their recollections, we see â€œJackâ€ Lewis dazzling Oxford as he takes on atheists, materialists, and a host of other challengers. Most poignantly, we see him in everyday settings: striding up and down the platform at a railroad station, presiding over leisurely dinners with students, expounding on the virtues of the pub.
â€œThe net effect of this collection,â€ said the Catholic Review, â€œis to make us feel that we know Lewis as well as [his] friends.â€ And to quote the New Yorker, â€œThe heterogeneity of the contributors assures a variety of Lewises, but certain traits appear in all these accounts: intelligence, imagination, gusto, a sense of fun, and, most frequently, magnanimity.â€
