Publisher's Description

Oxford’s fabled streets echo with the names of such key figures in English history as Edmund Halley, John Wycliffe, and John and Charles Wesley. Of more recent times are those of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the other members of the renowned literary circle to which they belonged, the Inklings. What would it be like to walk this medieval city’s narrow lanes in the company of such giants of Christian literature, to visit Magdalen College, where Lewis and Tolkien read aloud their works-in-progress to their friends, or the Eagle and Child pub, the Inklings’ favorite gathering place? The lavish photography of this book will introduce you to the fascinating world of the Inklings, matching their words to the places where these friends discussed—and argued over—theology, philosophy, ancient Norse myth, and Old Icelandic, while writing stories that were to become classics of the faith. The Inklings of Oxford will deepen your knowledge of and appreciation for this unique set of personalities. The book also features a helpful map section for taking walking tours of Oxford University and its environs.

    This book was to be a gift to one of my nephews for Christmas. When it arrived in the mail, I determined to give it to myself.

    Oxford is one of my favorite places on earth. As I read about the Inklings and walked with them to their favorite "talking" places around Oxford and out to Headington, I felt that I was transported back to my favorite place.

    The book is beautifully illustrated with pictures and captions that are lifted from the actual text of the book.

    A must "have" for those of us who enjoy the masterpieces by the Inklings, and for those of us who have benefited from their wisdom.

    This is an excellent book for what it is intended to be. It is not a detailed history or biography of the people involved, but a pictorial history of their relationship to one another and where they lived and worked. Beautiful pictures - wonderful commentary. I highly recommend this book for your coffee table or bookshelf.
