Lewis -- A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet ePUBAnyone who has given Christianity any serious thought in the English speaking world has had to have come across something written by CS Lewis Very few people have written and spoken on belief and the possibility of the Christian God in ways that engage both the mind the heart and the imagination as did Lewis And while many biographies have been written Alistair McGrath does everyone a wonderful favour by writing what might well be a kind of definitive history of Lewis at a time when those who knew him first hand are slowly disappearing McGrath relies and respects very nicely previous biographies and adds a few discoveries of his own when relating the different major events in Lewis' life and writings For anyone who is a fan of Lewis in any way this is a very interesting and engaging insight into the life and mind of someone who continues to fascinate

S. kindle, Lewis -- book, Lewis -- A Life: kindle, S. Lewis -- epub, S. Lewis -- A Life: mobile, C. S. Lewis -- A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet ePUBI belong to a rare breed I was in Cambridge in the late 1950s and early ’60s and privileged to correspond with Lewis hear him lecture meet him in person and indeed spend a whole academic evening with him as his wife was dying All of that is told in my spiritual autobiography O Love How Deep published just over two years ago This new ‘Life’ is written by someone who experienced none of these things It does therefore strike me as ‘thin’ and bloodless emotionally compared with some earlier efforts While it is mercifully or less free of amateur psychoanalysis as of falsehoods about

Lewis -- A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet ePUBLike all other reviewers I too found this book highly readable and informative throughout McGrath does an absolutely fantastic job in giving the reader a very good biography of CS Lewis I read the book wanting a number of uestions answered and found all of them covered in this bookMcGrath tells the reader at the start that he read almost everything available on Lewis both fiction and non fiction including a number of resources unavailable to previous biographers So straight way the reader knows this is going to be a comprehensive up to date account of CS Lewis And McGrath differs from other biographers in that he focuses on certain aspects of Lewis’ life taking

Lewis -- A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet ePUBThis is just the kind of book that Lewis would have rated highly First class scholarship achieved by rigorous engagement with the primary literature McGrath took a year to reread all of Lewis's works letters and other public and privately available documents He then wrote up his findings here managing to sort all of that data into a well crafted narrative that compellingly and simply but unsimplistically navigates the r after through Lewis's internal and external lifeI particularly appreciated McGraths meticulous care for chronology helpfully insisting that for example we don't read later issues with Mrs Moore back into earlier parts of the relationship or his excellent re examination of the date of Lewis' conversionIf

S. kindle, Lewis -- book, Lewis -- A Life: kindle, S. Lewis -- epub, S. Lewis -- A Life: mobile, C. S. Lewis -- A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet ePUBI have been a reader of Lewis's works for forty years and thus am also interested in his own life as this obviously has a bearing on understanding his writings For example I have often wondered how many evangelicals who so readily espouse him realise that he was a high Anglican? This is something McGrath does coverThis account I found fascinating and sets out the background and is one of the most open about his domestic arrangements As you read C S Lewis's life story it is intriguing that despite all his erudition and ability to debate topics he was not a saint and had his flawsIf you are interested in Lewis whether because of his Narnia books his science fiction his theology or his english literature then this is a book for you
