How and why Clive Staples Lewis – known to friends and family as Jack – has become "a cultural and literary landmark" is the question Alister McGrath sets out to answer. His book is billed as a biography, but it is simultaneously more and less than that. More in that it weaves in a thoughtful, erudite lit-crit appraisal of the writings, plus an unabashed serenade for Lewis's theology (McGrath is himself a theology professor at King's College, London and a very public defender of the faith). Less in that, though he covers key episodes familiar from other biographies, McGrath picks and chooses the details that suit his purpose of painting Lewis as a modern prophet.
