From the Publisher:

Designed to deepen the appreciation and understanding of new Lewis readers and longtime enthusiasts alike, this comprehensive companion provides invaluable biographical, textual and historical insight into C. S. Lewis' remarkable personal, spiritual and intellectual legacy.

Walter Hooper, an eminent C. S. Lewis scholar and one of the trustees of the C. S. Lewis estate, has created an accessible, organized, all-in-one resource that features:

  • A complete chronological biography that traces Lewis' life from his childhood in Belfast and war experience in France to his brilliant academic career at Oxford and Cambridge, through his religious conversion, the publication of each of his books, and his late marriage and widowhood.
  • A Who's Who listing of Lewis' family, teachers, pupils, spiritual mentors and friends, including Dorothy L. Sayers, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the "Inklings," a circle of friends with whom Lewis gathered for some 30 years to share compositions and "enjoy a golden age of talk about poetry, language, myth and imagination."
  • A What's What guide to the significance of places and things, from The Book of Common Prayer to the Cherbourg House preparatory school where a young Lewis "ceased to be a Christian."
  • A Key Ideas exploration of Lewis' thoughts on everything from enchantment, reason, imagination and joy to democratic education, myth and the masculine and feminine.

Giving thoughtful attention to each of Lewis' writings, and filled with telling detail, the C. S. Lewis Companion and Guide offers Lewis readers unparalleled access to the life and life's work of an extraordinary man.

From the Back Cover:

Fans of C. S. Lewis will treasure this comprehensive guide inside the life, mind, and work of one of Christianity's most beloved authors.
