The 50th Anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis

Many people in the early 21st Century will only know C.S. Lewis by his children's books in the Narnia series - or by the movies and plays made from them. There is much, however, to explore.

A visit to the Wikipedia entry on Lewis is a jumping off point 
into his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien
his books on Christianity and the Christian walk. 

2013 marks the 50th Anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis.   The ABC's Religion & Ethics website has a reflective piece by the British theologian Alister McGrath.  

Alister McGrath is presently Professor of Theology, Ministry and Education at King’s College, London. He will take up the Andreas Idreos Professorship of Science and Religionat Oxford University in April 2014.  His most recent book include two substantial studies of Lewis, both based on two decades of research, publish to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Lewis’s death: C.S. Lewis – a Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet and The IntellectualWorld of C.S. Lewis.
