offers original work on and about C. S. Lewis from scholars who have written far and wide about his stories, his theology, and his world.
I was particularly excited to see the most recent post, Parables for Pilgrims,Â excerpted from a work by David Downing. Over the past several years, I’veÂ gotten to knowÂ Downing, R. W. Schlosser Professor of English at Elizabethtown College in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, andÂ value the insights which he has to share.Â As you may know he has written two pieces for InterVarsity Press:Â The Most Reluctant Convert: C. S. Lewis’s Journey to Faith and Into the Region of Awe: Mysticism in C. S. Lewis
P.S. He also has an excellent piece on the Ransom Trilogy, see hereÂ Why is the Ransom Triology so ignored?
