Gresham signed copies of A Life Observed, for which he wrote the foreword.

“In a presentation both touching and humorous, Douglas Gresham and Dr. Devin Brown introduced a crowd at Asbury University on Monday evening to aspects of famed author C.S. Lewis most had never known before. . . . 

“‘He was an outgoing, social man,’ said Gresham. ‘You could always tell where Jack was by the roaring of laughter. If you really are a scholar you don’t have to try to look like one or act like one. Jack actually looked like a father.'”
