The Weekly Hit List: August 16, 2013

A Life ObservedA Life Observed by Devin Brown was reviewed by Dr. Crystal Hurd

Brown chronicles Lewis’s long, arduous journey from the shipyards of Belfast, Northern Ireland to the prestigious halls of Oxford. He skillfully weaves various quotes and reflections from Lewis’s works into the narrative, illustrating how Lewis’s works were directly influenced by many of his life experiences. . . .

“I own several of Brown’s works and have found the same clarity and depth in those works as well.  He has been a celebrated Lewis scholar for many years, and therefore, serves as a trustworthy guide for Lewis’s spiritual journey.

“I urge you to add this book to your Lewis collection. It truly is not just ‘another Lewis biography’ but a crucial exploration into the spiritual aspects of Lewis we perpetually find so fascinating.”
