Not a Tame Lion: The Spiritual Legacy of C.S. Lewis

As one of the most brilliant creative minds of the twentieth century, C. S. Lewis crosses over all literary, philosophical, and religious boundaries.  A world-renowned scholar of medieval literature at Oxford University, he was simultaneously able to write and lecture in such clear, direct language that ordinary men and women were fully able to comprehend the truths he extolled.  He was the prolific author of such classic masterpieces as The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Problem of Pain, and Mere Christianity. But as Terry Glaspey points out in this fascinating new biographical study, his life was as compelling as his work -- a perspective that the recent feature film Shadowlands only reinforces all the more.

In Not a Tame Lion Glaspey allows us a clear view of the character of this extraordinarily gifted man who believed that his sharp mind and rich imagination were to be accompanied by a sense of responsibility to the wider world.  Thus, this book demonstrates why, a generation after his death, Lewis continues to be numbered among our best-selling authors and our most influential thinkers.
