Product Description

In C.S. Lewis: A Life, renowned historian and former Oxford professor Alister McGrath paints a definitive and comprehensive portrait of the life of C. S. Lewis. McGrath combines crisp prose with a highly informative but accessible narrative that highlights every corner of Lewis' often obscure world from his days as an introverted child spending endless hours reading and imagining to his ascension to fame as a British novelist. Lewis' complex relationships with his brother, father, Joy Davidman, J.R.R. Tolkien and the Inklings are all examined in detail as is recently discovered personal correspondence. But McGrath also delves into Lewis' psyche and his faith, reexamines his conversion in light of new evidence, and brings the entire story together in a biography that N.T. Wright has called "A penetrating and illuminating study".
C.S. Lewis has, perhaps, influenced more Christians than any other modern writer. But there is so much more to the man than his writings. There is a remarkable story within the storyteller. Alister McGrath tells that story with precision, honesty, and humor.
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 14.75 hours; 12 CDs; read by Robin Sachs.

This multifaceted biography and analysis of C.S. Lewis's life and works would challenge even the most dedicated audiobook narrator. The late Robin Sachs clearly has a keen understanding of the work and the life he is recounting. The book is divided into segments that include the various events of Lewis's life. His relationship with his father, the death of his wife, and his ongoing relationship with his brother influenced his literature. Additionally, his conversion from atheism to Christianity transformed his character. With a tranquil tone and fluid delivery, Robin Sachs leads the listener through these various sections with quiet perception of the man and thoroughly reveals Lewis's complex nature. It's a stellar performance and a stunning biography. E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.
