Jack: C. S. Lewis and His Times
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: February 2014
Duration: 13 hours 28 minutes
Numerous biographies have been written about this great theologian, literary critic, and novelist, but we have found this to be the best.
Sayer describes Lewis’ early years, hinting at childhood evidence of the brilliance and eccentricity that would later become Lewis’ hallmarks. He discusses Lewis’ academic career, his life-transforming conversion to Christianity, and the role of religion in his life. With honesty and compassion, he covers Lewis’ controversial relationship with Mrs. Moore and his passionate marriage to Joy Davidman.
“A cheerful look back on the life of [Sayer’s] cherished friend and mentor…Frederick Davidson…maintains the flow of the work. His presentation of English and Irish dialects is excellent.”—AudioFile
