The recent Narnia films have inspired a resurgence of interest in C. S. Lewis, the Oxford academic, popular theologian and, most famously, creator of the magical world of Narnia - and this authoritative new biography, published to mark the 50th anniversary of Lewis' death, sets out to introduce him to a new generation. Completely up to date with scholarly studies of Lewis, it also focuses on how Lewis came to write the Narnia books and why they have proved so consistently engaging. 

Accessible and engaging, this new biography will appeal to fans of the films, of Lewis and of theologian and apologist Alister McGrath himself.
