Library Journal Review

Barfield, long-time friend and solicitor of Lewis, provides unique insights into Lewis the man, literary critic, Christian apologist, and writer of fiction. At the same time he clarifies the nature and development of literary friendship. Collecting lectures, essays, introductions, and conversations, he allows us to distinguish his ideas from Lewis's (more clearly than have many critics), also providing new insights into Lewis's view of imagination and its relationship to truth. The result is a probing portrait of the psychological and intellectual maturity Lewis achieved in midlife. Also revealed is what Lewis considered essential in his newly found Christianity and the role of heretical teaching (including that of Rudolf Steiner) in his orthodoxy. Highly recommended, especially for seminary and public libraries.--Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va. (c) Copyright 2010.
