    This is an easy one for me. “Mere Christianity” changed very much the way I view my life and approach to faith and does still today. His words have a clarity and practicality that resonates for me. He makes me understand things, and avoids the all-too-common religious phrasing that annoys me. I will also mention that one essay, “Mediation in a Woodshed” shed true light (pardon the pun). I reread both “Mere” and the essay occasionally to refocus and reassess. His words are a gift, and and an aid to those looking to achieve greater understanding and love of our Creator.

    The answer is: Jack: A Life of C.S. Lewis. This was the first biography I read and I continue to go back to it for the wealth of personal information and stories that George Sayer records for us.

    “The Quotable Lewis” – somehow, GOD gave CS Lewis a revelation of so many truths we are richer to consider them in our own lives

    I have to say of “The C.S. Lewis Reader’s Encyclopedia” is my favorite. It is awesome when I need to find something, whether I know its from Lewis, or when I just want to know if he had anything to do with a certain topic, I can always find it in there.

    For a book ABOUT Lewis, I would say Jack’s Life: The Life Story of C.S. Lewis by Douglas Gresham, Lewis’ stepson and son of Joy Davidman. I really enjoyed Douglas’ perspective – a more intimate, insider’s view of Lewis. My favorite book(s) BY Lewis are The Chronicles of Narnia, having read them aloud (interactively, reader’s theater style) with my 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls) as they were growing up. If I have to choose only one Narnia story, it would be The Magician’s Nephew, since my husband and I took on the persona of King Frank and Queen Helen (the cabby and his wife) when we hosted parties for the openings of the 3 Narnia movies to date.

    Planet Narnia – made me think in a different way about the books I’ve read so many times. We read it just after reading his book about medieval cosmology so it made great sense.

    Jack’s Life: The Life Story of C.S. Lewis By Douglas Gresham. Very compelling and a careful examination of the personal side of his step-father. Gresham’s writing style is also very enjoyable.

      My new book will be the Screwtape Letters, and I think I’m in for some fun and some big spiritual lessons. I am just sorry that I have come to this news so late in my life. I think with some of Mr Lewis’s words and inspiration my life could have a bit more joyfull and peaceful. Better late than never!

        p.s. I love my quilt. It’s better than any picture I could post of myself..it depicts my life; sort of a patchwork of moments,days,and years

    O my! I am so new to CS Lewis. I find his works so understandable and familiar that I feel as if He is speaking to me. I guess my favorite is the Great Divorce because I just finished it. It made me cry to think how simple sin actually is . Until I read this I never understood the meaning of “we are all sinners”, and I am a cradle catholic with 12 Years of religious training. I am newly in love with Jesus and Mr. Lewis or Jack as he wanted to me known.

    I’m just starting a lengthy study of CS Lewis and the Narnia books with my family. I’m reading a book called The Narnia – The Life and Imagination of C.S. Lewis. I like it so far and it seems to be a book that I can use with the kids.

    “The Hidden Story of Narnia” would be it at present for me. I like “behind the scenes”-types of things and I like how this book takes that perspective started with that young girl’s letter to Lewis and his response. So much depth Lewis has and then how it got added to. Wonderful stuff!
