Behind the mind

C.S. Lewis just might be one of the most influential thinkers and writers out there. I’ve always wondered what influences and inspires those who influence and inspire us. Now I was given the chance to find out.

In the book From the Library of C.S. Lewis, the authors compiled multiple short selections of poetry, literature, and writings all of which inspired and influenced C.S. Lewis himself. As a Lewis and literature fan, I found the compilation intruiging and interesting. Although it’s written as a non-fiction treasury, I would expect that most would find it appealing as a reference book or casual read that gets picked up here or there. There are excerpts from Andrew Murray, George MacDonald, Saint Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Wordsworth, Aristotle; not to mention many more. This is a great read for anyone who is a Lewis fan and is interested in knowing more of what went into some of the best works of literature.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.
