  • This is a fresh and riveting biography of this well-loved author and Christian teacher. C. S. Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. Yet among his poetry, literary history and criticism, novels and Christian apologetics stands a unique, delightfully imaginative childrens series called "The Chronicles of Narnia", which has joined the ranks of the classics. Alan Jacobs uses this imaginary world of Narnia to explore the imaginative life of C. S. Lewis. Not just a conventional biography of Lewis, "The Narnian" seeks a more elusive quarry: an understanding of the way Lewiss experiences, both direct and literary, shaped his thought and his writings.
