Lectures or Books about C.S. Lewis?

Postby Valiant_Nymph » May 05, 2018 8:26 am

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a good bibliography and/or lectures about C.S. Lewis and his work. Can anyone recommend anything? :)

And I should say I've read Lewis' own autobiography, Surprised by Joy, already :)

The Narnian by Alan Jacobs is a pretty good bibliography. I read it a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I've also heard C.S. Lewis - A Life by Alister McGrath is a good one, but I haven't read it yet.

Not sure this fits in with what you are looking for, but have you ever listened to any lectures given by C.S. Lewis. There are only a few surviving, but it is wonderful to hear his voice! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYoU5_MQOU0&t=279s

Hi Valiant, just want to clarify - do you want a biography of Lewis (his life) or a bibliography (a list of books about him) ?

For biography, I recommend George Sayer's one,

For bibliography, a good place to start is the website Into the Wardrobe.
"Blessed are you, Lord our God, king of the universe, who diversified his creatures" (a Jewish prayer to be said whenever one sees an unusual looking person or animal),

Hi Coracle,

Either would be good. I will check out both those recommendations! Thanks :)
