Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“To truly know Lewis, one must become familiar with the body of literature that marked his life. Jim Bell and Tony Dawson give curious students of Lewis a glimpse of the books and authors that informed his life’s work and kindled his imagination.”

--Jerry Root, coeditor of The Quotable C. S. Lewis and a C. S. Lewis scholar

 

C. S. Lewis was one of the most influential thinkers and writers of the twentieth century. But who influenced C. S. Lewis? What were the sources of his inspiration? Who were his spiritual mentors?     

 

Drawn from Lewis’s personal library, annotations, and references from his writings, this book includes more than 200 selections from literary giants such as Dante, Augustine, and Chaucer, as well as more contemporary writers such as G. K. Chesterton, Dorothy L. Sayers, George MacDonald, and J.R.R. Tolkien, providing a vast array of inspiration from those who have shone forth as messengers of light in Lewis’s own thinking, writing, and spiritual growth.

 

In this treasury, you will…

 

·  Glean wisdom on living a devout life from Andrew Murray and Brother Lawrence

·  Tap into fantasy and imagination with William Wordsworth and Geoffrey Chaucer

·  Ponder creation and poetry alongside Sir Walter Scott and Aristotle

·  And much more!
