This fascinating volume brings together all the aspects of C S Lewis’s life and thought.

It will delight anyone who is interested in C S Lewis and wants to learn more about him. Arranged in alphabetical order The A-Z of C S Lewis begins with The Abolition of Man – a book written in 1943 and described by Lewis as "almost my favourite" – to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. Lewis’s work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one small part – his children’s stories and his popular theology – and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This is an enormously readable and attractive work that will be read time and time again.
