Where Do I Go From Here: Key Resources for Reading Lewis – Andrew Lazo
In some ways a continuation of Session 1, we’ll go deeper into the list of Lewis’ books, and will also explore the key resources in learning more about Lewis: biographies, encyclopedias, reader’s guides, concordances, and key studies in several areas of Lewis’ life, thought, and work. We’ll likely address some of the controversial areas of Lewis’ life and work, including the re-ordering of the Chronicles of Narnia, the role of Mrs. Moore, and the charges of sexism in Lewis’ writings.
