The A-Z of C.S. Lewis: A Blog Tour and Review

About The Book:

A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings
Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis’s death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis’ works, from his literary criticism to Narnia
C. S. Lewis’s work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work—his children’s stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis’s life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man—written in 1943 and described as “almost my favorite”—to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life.
About The Author:
Colin Duriez was for many years a commissioning editor at Inter-Varsity Press UK. He has subsequently appeared as a commentator on DVDs of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and BBC television's The Worlds of Fantasy. He is also the author of "The Inklings Handbook" (with the late David Porter), "J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship," and "Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings," and has contributed to definitive reference works relating to Tolkien such as "The Tolkien Encyclopedia" (Routledge).
My Review:
C.S. Lewis is one of the best known authors in Literature, whether Christian or Secular. His books were written many years ago, but are still read and enjoyed by millions of people around the globe! I know I personally have read a number of them, both as text books in college and for personal growth and study. So this book is a huge hit in our home, for both myself and my husband. 
The A-Z of C.S. Lewis is full of tidbits about Lewis and would be the quintessential book for any Lewis fan in your life. It is well organized and easy to read.  The book covers characters from his fiction books, to themes from his non-fiction, to his personal ideas and thoughts on life. It is so full of info you will find yourself lost for hours pouring over all the information in this little book! It definitely packs a punch to be sure.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
