Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.
"This NRSV edition can survive beyond the Sunday-school classroom
or hotel nightstand; the reader walks away with a greater
appreciation for Lewis's oeuvre, and may even pick up a thing or
two from the Good Book in the process."--The New Yorker
For longtime admirers of Lewis--or those just awakened to his contributions through the Narnia films--[The C.S. Lewis Bible] would make a welcome addition to enrich personal devotional times.--United Methodist Reporter
