As a young person, Homer’s Iliad and The Odyssey toward above the (easily understandable in contrast to Homer) Alastair Maclean books that I enjoyed – each with its own dynamic, twist in the tale; C.S. Lewis however, with his adventures in the Chronicles of Narnia, captured my attention uniquely.

The book by Colin Duriez, “Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Gift of Friendship” is certainly one on my Christmas list!
And so, with intrigue I was delighted to stumble across this short video and would like to invite you to spare a few minutes investigating the life of one of England’s greatest thinkers from yesteryear.
