"A brisk and honest retelling of the group and its members...Duriez's best book." -Diana Pavlac Glyer, author of The Company They Keep: C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien as Writers in Community
"Few people know the Inklings as intimately as Duriez, who makes us feel as though he has just come from a morning with them at The Eagle and Child." -Harry Lee Poe, author of The Inklings of Oxford and C.S. Lewis Remembered
"This book...offers surprising and delightful insights even for readers who are familiar with earlier studies on the Inklings.... Enjoyable and enlightening." -David C. Downing, author of The Most Reluctant Convert and Looking for the King
"One of the best books on the Inklings I've ever read." -Walter Hooper, literary advisor to the C. S. Lewis estate
Sufficient in JesusAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Inklings- poets, scholars, theologians, friends, critics, thinkers.March 28, 2015Sufficient in JesusAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"The Oxford Inklings" by Colin Duriez is a manageable collection of mini-autobiographies of the renowned men who made up the Inklings.
These men were C. S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Charles Williams, and others of academic and literary fame.
Collectively, these men soldiered, authored many books from theology to poetry, and instructed at some prestigious British and American Universities.
They were friends first, and critics of each other's work when relevant, and they all were believers of Christ or came to be.
Ravi Zacharias' question "Can man live without God?" could have been answered by any of these fellows.
If you're a fan of C. S. Lewis, I can recommend this book. Eric Metaxas, a modern philosopher and theologian, holds educational forums under the name "Socrates in the City" where brilliant minds gather to inform regarding various topics. These gatherings are a chance to question and dialogue.
I can't help but think that's a lot like the Inklings, who gathered to eat, drink, and think.
I thank Lion Hudson for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
This book will be joining Mr. Duriez's other book "An A to Z of C.S Lewis" as well as a whole host of other Lewis-themed titles, on my shelf.
