I hadn't been aware of this; thanks for setting me straight on this
point. I'm planning to get a copy of the revised Wilson and read it
when I have time (there's a considerable pile of Tolkien-related
books in the queue ahead of it), and I'll keep this in mind when
reading it and see if I reach the same conclusions you did.
Oh, and good post on the recent tendency to overstate the
importance, good and bad, of Lewis's apologetics
