- Jul 17, 2013well I read the man who created Narnia by a author who I forget who wrote that one. he used to work for cfrb I think a radio station hear in Canada. and also The Narnian The Life and Imagination of C. S. Lewis by Alan Jacobs. I remember reading the man who created Narnia and it completely ruined the Narnia series for me. the reason is because the author went through and picked apart each book and it's Christian references. for instance he would say something like Azlind dyeing on the stone table is equwill to Christ dyeing on the cross. after reading that I couldn't read any of the Narnia series with out feeling like the hole issue of god and Christianity was being shoved down my throat. from Mich.----- Original Message -----From: John RateliffSent: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 3:59 PMSubject: [mythsoc] five books about Lewis?
Hi allI've been organizing my Inklings shelves, and in the process it was driven home to me that my shelf of books about Lewis are a mixed bag. Some are those books anyone interested in Lewis or the Inklings wd want to have. Others are things I picked up more or less random because it seemed like a good idea at the time. That got me to thinking: there are so many books on Lewis and his work nowadays (I'd guess around 200, but that estimate may be way' off) that the essentials risk being lost in the crowd. Since this is a well-informed group, I wanted to ask: what five books on CSL do you consider essentials, the books everybody shd have?--John R.
