'A mental map, a religious journey, and the biography of a brotherhood. The Zaleskis zoom in on (and out from) the primary axis of Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, and Barfield---Christians all. These men formed what the Zaleskis call 'a perfect compass rose of faith.' Who can compare with such writers?'---The Atlantic. 656 pages, softcover. Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
