November 25, 2014

CS Lewis Top Ten Volume 1From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – What made C.S. Lewis such a great writer? One major factor is that he was a great reader. So, what did Lewis read? That’s the driving force behind a new book by Will Vaus entitled C.S. Lewis’ Top Ten, Volume One. In this podcast interview with William O’Flaherty, Vaus shares about this first of three books that examine the topic. This initial volume explores three of titles and authors that influenced him most: George MacDonald, Chesterton and Virgil. Vaus explores Lewis’ overall reading of each author, their life and a synopsis of the book identified by Lewis the most influential.

Pilgrim's Regress (Wade)From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – C.S.

Call For Guest Blogs on The Great Divorce
