Product Description

Douglas Gresham was just a misplaced boy when his mom, Joy Davidman, moved with her sons from America to England where they befriended legendary author C.S. Lewis. In time, Davidman and Lewis married, and "Jack," as the writer was known, helped to provide his new stepsons with fatherly care, love and wisdom. Indeed, Douglas Gresham is uniquely qualifed to write the duly tender biography of Lewis that is Jack's Life. Like the child that he was when they first met, Douglas recounts with wide eyes and open heart the man who endured his own childhood dramas. And on a personal level, Gresham illuminates the everyday charms of a literary icon who was far more than the genius behind The Chronicles of Narnia, and Mere Christianity.

Publisher's Description

Douglas Gresham claims that Jack Lewis was the finest man and the best Christian he has ever known. Of course, Jack to Douglas is C. S. Lewis to the rest of the world. The informal address Gresham uses to refer to the great writer is indicative of the intimacy he shared with Lewis for a dozen years, living in England as Lewis's stepson.Jack's Life is an affectionate account of days now long gone. It is a personal memoir of a man who touched many in the classroom, even more with his pen, and made a significant, lasting, and eternal impression on one young man. Douglas Gresham is uniquely qualified to offer such an extraordinary portrait.
