To Lewis fans:

There’s a controversial new book–

C. S. Lewis — A Life: Eccentric Genius,

Reluctant Prophet

by Alister McGrath.

.

Did Lewis really hide important facts?

We missed this and

an informative review about it.

Why?

Partly because the review came out exactly

on the 50th anniversary of his death

(on Nov. 22, 2013, about which we did report)

.

For more use the DOOR.

♦ Interesting detail from the above:  Lewis nominated J. R. R. Tolkien for the Nobel Prize.

Did C. S. Lewis hide certain important details of his life that “history” has now uncovered?

Further, for you literature ADS-followers, here’s a fascinating illustration of the (expected) differences in good autobiography and good biographyeven if you just read this brief review.

ADS has not read the book, but it is familiar with–and appreciative of–the contribution of Lewis…as well as that of McGrath.
