Serenity and C. S. Lewis

October 2nd, 2005

It is dangerous to speculate on what kind of movie C. S. Lewis would or would not like. After all, he did not like movies. But he did like narrative and romance (i.e., a technical term for adventure and questing, not a reference to Harlequin novels)–and he loved science-fiction, or “speculative fiction.” He chose it […]

Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, is now out, got my first author’s copy yesterday; the bookstores should have it by the end of the week or sooner. The publicity trail is starting up.

Thought you might be interested in seeing my answers to some questions posed on a Narnia web site regarding my two new books and the Narnia movie.

CSL the Scholar Christian

September 9th, 2005

Those who know C S Lewis only as a Christian apologist may underestimate and thus underprivilege his amazing output as a scholar. If we think he excels as a fantasist, what might his literary critic friends think of his scholarship? We don’t have to guess. As one of colleagues suggests, “I went to some of […]

CSL and Home Schooling

August 26th, 2005

I was privileged today to meet with some home schooled children and parents here in a private home in Bowling Green to discuss Lewis’s life and the upcoming Narnia movie. I remarked on Lewis’s upbringing, and relation to the experience of home schooling at the hands of William Kirkpatrick, known in Lewis’s autobio work, Surprised […]

The Giant “Surmise”

August 22nd, 2005

The first non-Lewisian Narnian tale (or as the subtitle refers to it, “A Narnia Tale”) was published this year by HarperCollins, entitled, The Giant Surprise. It’s intended for “young readers” as a “picture book,” and, ostensibly provides a convenient way to tell a story drafting Puddleglum the Marshwiggle as the central character. I finally recently […]

Lewis’s Reputation

August 20th, 2005

Just in the past two days I have received emails from earnest souls worried about C. S. Lewis’s reputation, by which I mean someone–a friend or a website wag–had said something to them untoward about Lewis’s “real beliefs” or, “If you knew what he and the Inklings really thought, you would not be so enthusiastic.” […]

The Day the Book Comes

August 14th, 2005

It is hard not to be enthralled. You’ve labored over it for many months after its been seasoned for many years in your teaching, your daydreams, and your sermons. It’s concrete now. It’s on paper. An editor reads it. It’s in galleys. You get to see cover art. Amazon has an ISBN #. And then, […]
