From the Inside Flap:

This reissue of a treasured classic offers a beautiful window into the people and places that shaped the life of beloved author, scholar, critic, and apologist C. S. Lewis. In photographs and text (much of it in Lewis's own words), Douglas Gilbert and Clyde S. Kilby introduce us to such memorable friends as J. R. R. Tolkien and transport us to such magical places as the deer park outside Lewis's rooms at Magdalen College, Oxford. We also meet Lewis as a talented and brilliant child in Belfast, captivated by the myths and legends of the North, already writing and illustrating imaginative stories and poems at a young age.

While the book includes an essay tracing Lewis's struggle to find faith and a chronology of his life, it is not a biography but rather a personal introduction, a composite portrait of a fascinating individual and the world in which he lived. Attractively laid out in a fresh new format, this volume will be prized both by those renewing a longtime acquaintance with Lewis and by those encountering him for the first time.

Praise for "C. S. Lewis: Images of His World

"The constant and ever-growing audience for C. S. Lewis, for both his own work and books about him, will welcome this book. It captures his life and circle and ambience in superb photographs, many in color, of persons and places. . . . This will be basic to Lewis studies and a joy to enthusiasts of his work."
-- "The Wall Street Journal

"This graceful marriage of words and photographs is a 'Pilgrim's Progress' of the young atheist poet who became one of the twentieth century's most imaginative theologians."
-- "Time

"A beautiful and remarkably thorough glance at the life of C. S. Lewis....To those who already know Lewis well, "C. S. Lewis: Images of His World provides a deeper, richer, fuller picture of him. To those who do not, the book offers an opportunity to get to know a warm, sensitive man."
-- "The Christian Century

"Splendid photography of where Lewis lived accompanied by expert commentary."
-- "Christianity Today
