Editorial Reviews

Derick Bingham ~ Was the teaching pastor at Christchurch
I was challenged to write this book by my friend the distinguished sculptor Ross Wilson. At that time he was preparing his CS Lewis Centenary Sculpture to be erected in the great man's native city, Belfast in Northern Ireland. As I live in Belfast it was a privilege to be writing about our city's most famous writer, his upbringing, his adventures and how he came to know the Lord Jesus. As I researched his life I was amazed to discover how much sorrow CS Lewis experienced and I was deeply inspired by how he overcame his difficulties. My greatest joy following the writing of this book has been to see it published in Chinese.'

If you like this, you'll love this:Ten boys who used their talents by Irene Howat. This title includes a chapter on C. S. Lewis.Also why not look at the title: Talking about Dragons by William Chad Newsom. This is a review of the work of Tolkien and Lewis and how to use these to develop and encourage family devotional times.
