It’s been nearly half a century since C.S. Lewis’s death in 1963, but this life-long professor of medieval literature remains one of the best-selling Christian authors today. And it’s not just Christians who appreciate him. In 2008, The Times of London ranked him eleventh on their list of "the 50 greatest British writers since 1945."

 

One reason for his enduring popularity was Lewis' ability to write engagingly in all sorts of formats, from children’s fiction to academic treatises. As Christopher Mitchell, director of the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, says, "Lewis had just remarkable instincts about what to address and what not to address and how to address it."

 

This CT Essentials is a concise, engaging introduction to the man and his legacy. Spend an evening with this eBook, and you’ll want to spend a lifetime reading Lewis.
