Letters to an American lady by C. S Lewis( Book )

22 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Lewis was 51 years old and long established at Magdalen College, Oxford, he wrote the first of this collection of letters to an American widow. She was described as a "very charming, gracious, southern aristocratic lady who loved to talk and speak well". In them are his antipathy to journalism, advertising, snobbery, psychoanalysis, and the petty practices that sap freedoms. They identify events in his life after 1950 including his marriage to Joy Davidman and her death three years later
C.S. Lewis: images of his world by Douglas R Gilbert( Book )

16 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This reissue of a treasured classic offers a window into the people and places that shaped the life of beloved author, scholar, 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 per se 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 longtime fans of Lewis and by those encountering him for the first time."--Jacket

"A repackaged edition of the revered author's poetry--a collection of verse that exemplifies and celebrates his breadth of knowledge, his wide-ranging interests, both spiritual and earthly, and his never-ending search to find God and understand the mysteries of the world. Known for his fiction and philosophical nonfiction, C. S. Lewis--the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics--was also an accomplished poet. In Poems, Lewis dives deep into a wide range of subjects--from God to nature to love to unicorns--revealing his extensive imagination and sense of wonder"--

Christianity and aesthetics by Clyde S Kilby( Book )

3 editions published between 1961 and 1978 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists through the centuries have been fascinated by the creation story. In the record of our common heritage, they have found the basis of our strivings for freedom and justice. They have seen in it, too, the source of their own originality -- of that creativity we all experience at some moments, in some measure, and which is as necessary to vital Christian living as it is to art. Like these artists, Dr. Clyde S. Kilby turns to the opening pages of Genesis as he considers the origin of the creative spirit in man. He links man's imagination and joy in creation to the Creator Artist who made man in His image -- to the Giver of life and life-creating life. He sees art as man's expression, not only of homage to the Lord of all life, but of his own essential nature, his own endless reaching after life, beauty, truth. In this brief introduction to Christianity and aesthetics, the author reminds us of our identity, past and present, pointing us to universal and eternal values. Through these pages he invests us with new insights and intuitions in this vital area of the relationship between Christianity and art -- that great gift to man which, according to Jacques Maritain, abounds in significance, says more than it is, and delivers "to the mind, at one stroke, the universe in a human countenance." - Preface

A well of wonder : essays on C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Inklings by Clyde S Kilby( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clyde S. Kilby is rare among the best expositors of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and their circle of friends in that he became personally acquainted not only with Lewis and Tolkien, but also Lewis's brother Major Warren Lewis, Owen Barfield, Lord David Cecil, and others of the Inklings. He particularly captured the soul of C.S. Lewis in his lectures, articles and books, which guided his vision in creating and curating the prestigious Wade Collection at Wheaton College, Illinois. This delightful book makes available Dr. Kilby's wide-ranging and inspiring take on Lewis, Tolkien and the affinities they shared with their circle, the Inklings, in their enchantment with profound thought vibrant with imaginative wonder which took them beyond "the walls of the world". (Colin Duriez Inklings scholar, author of The Oxford Inklings)

Jue xing de ling hun : Lu Yishi tan xin yang by C. S Lewis( Book )

7 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in Chinese and English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“He believed that such problems had at least essential answers and set out like a hound on the scent of a fox to find them. He liked answers better than questions.” ? from the Preface C.S. Lewis believed in the absolute logic of faith; his books, letters, and essays demonstrated the immutability of religion in his life. This collection mines their pages to bring out some of his essential lessons and to showcase the themes that provided the foundation for his philosophy: The Nature of Man, The Moral World, Sin, The Christian Commitment, Love and Sex, Hell and Heaven, and others. His preoccupations produced inspiring literature that was sometimes whimsical, often provocative, and always emotionally compelling. Here, then, is an anthology to return to again and again?whenever we most need wisdom, insight into how best to wrestle with a particular challenge, or simply the kind of unexpected perspective Lewis always provides. "Lewis?s remorseless pursuit of clarity, his intense moral concern, (and) the peculiar hue of myth, faerie, and Eden which informs all his work . . . these are here, and in proportion to how one would find them if one were to read every Lewis ever published." ? -- The Screwtape Letters
