THE MUST-HAVE GUIDE WHEN YOU FOLLOW C. S. LEWIS’S FOOTSTEPS ACROSS OXFORD.This one-of-a-kind guide was written by an Oxford native who brings a unique perspective to C. S. Lewis’s life in Oxford.Ron Brind was born a few hundred yards away from The Kilns, the house C. S. Lewis lived in for more than 30 years. As a young child, Ron became fast friends with Douglas (Dougie) Gresham, C. S. Lewis’s stepson. He was soon a regular visitor to the Lewis household, and was taught by Dougie to call C. S. Lewis “Jack.”Ron’s lifelong interest in C. S. Lewis’s writings prompted him to establish an accompanied tour that gave Ron the opportunity to share with visitors his knowledge of Jack Lewis’s life during the 1950s, perhaps the most productive and turbulent decade in the life of the 20th century’s greatest Christian apologist.“C. S. Lewis in Oxford: A Guide for Visitors” grew out of the questions those visitors posed as Ron led them to Magdalen College (where Jack taught), the Eagle and Child public house (where the Inklings often gathered), Jack Lewis’s first “digs” on Mansfield Street… and a dozen of other of C. S. Lewis’s well-known haunts in Oxford.Much more than a simple travel guide, “C. S. Lewis in Oxford: A Guide for Visitors” provides powerful insights into the life and times of C. S. Lewis. This digital book is your ideal travel companion when you follow the footsteps of Jack Lewis across the city he loved.
