Since The Screwtape Letters catapulted C. S. Lewis into fame in the 1940s, he has been among the world's most widely read apologists for the Christian faith. The contributors to this book suggest that his popularity might be explained by the fact that he asked the hard questions about Christianity so directly and answered them with uncommon clarity and simplicity. Having kwn and scrutinized this remarkable man, the contributors to this volume help us to understand the growing interest in Lewis and his work. His stepson, Douglas Gresham, his posthumous editors, Walter Hooper, and Lewis scholars Lyle Dorsett, Colin Manlove, and Dabney Hart share their memories and insights into the Lewis legend. Published by Word in hardcover in 2001, this first paperback edition helps readers understand and further appreciate one of the most influential writers of the last 100 years.
