What made bestselling author C. S. Lewis such a great writer with so many admirers? One answer to that question is Lewis' vast reading across the entire canon of Western literature, from Homer and the Bible to some lesser-known works of the early twentieth century. Before one can become a great writer, one must be a great reader.
In 1962, an interviewer asked Lewis: 'What books did most to shape your vocational attitude and your philosophy of life?' In response, Lewis offered his top ten list. Based on his books, marginal notes, and personal letters, Lewis' reading of these books is thoroughly documented. Volume One of this series covers the first three books on Lewis’ list: Phantastes by George MacDonald, The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton, and The Aeneid by Virgil. Will Vaus offers a brief biography of each author with a helpful summary of their book.
Lewis' Top Ten goes to the sources of the ideas and ideals reflected in Lewis' own books. With this handy three-volume series, readers can discover new authors and learn what Lewis believed was most important in his own life and writings.
