Summary

A man of reason and vigorous discourse, and a renowned professor of literature and philosophy, C.S. Lewis, always "Jack" to family and friends, never shied from intellectual debate, and through his written works encouraged others to wrestle with the difficult questions of faith. A master of visual illustration and allegory, Lewis wrote with the intuitive understanding that his readers wrestled with the same questions about the Christian story, about pain, suffering, and notions of Heaven and Hell, as he himself had wrestled. He also understood that others found reason and imagination to be incompatible aspects of an understanding of God and the universe.

Narration very disappointing.

What did you like best about C.S. Lewis? What did you like least?

The story of C.S. Lewis is fascinating. I love his stories and liked hearing about how he created them as well as how he came to faith in Christ. However. The narration is so poor I almost turned it off during the introduction. It is hard to comprehend the meaning of sentences due to the reader's lack of appropriate inflections. I am sure the story would have been riveting with a better reader. Sorry.

I love audible books but I would return this one if I could.

Would you be willing to try another one of David Glass’s performances?

No.

Written by a 3rd party.

Would've been higher, had it been by CS Lewis, but instead a 3rd party. Oh well.

C. S. Lewis a Life Inspired

I wanted to know who C. S. Lewis was so I purchased the biography of his life. I found it interesting but nothing else.

Good story, bad narrator

I could not enjoy the nasally narrator. The subject matter of the book was good enough to grit my teeth and tolerate the narration.

A good book, unfortunately narrated.

Mr. Glass has an annoying, nasal quality to his voice and he reads too rapidly for comfortable listening.

Loved His Pennings!

I first read The Screwtape Letters in Bible College and quickly fell in love with C. S. Lewis. I read the Chronicles a few years later and was whisked back to the adventures I encountered at my Grandparents house in the country. I was whisked into the closet with Lucy and could see everything she described and felt as though I was traveling with her each step of the way. I felt the frustration she experienced when she tried to explain where she had been! It was one of the most exciting adventures for my children to share as well. The story evoked imagination, laughter, irritation and tears that all turned into happiness at being back safe on this side of the closet! So much to grasp about life in his stories!

Thought provoking

Once you read or listen to you will more fully be better prepared to enjoy his books.
