C.S. Lewis and I had our first fight.
As many of you know, I am a pretty big C.S. Lewis fan. “How big?” you ask. To that I would answer: “I named my cat Narnia. That’s how big.”
That’s me and Narnia. He’s a big C.S. Lewis fan too, obviously.
You know when you’re at church or listening to a lecture and C.S. Lewis is quoted? I’m the person that nods her head vigorously like I heard him say it personally.
But the other day, I got schooled by C.S. Lewis. I knew I was asking for trouble when I wrote negatively about his bro Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
And sure enough, he called me out on it. My C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-day (yes, I do have an app called “C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-day”) was as follows:
As a matter of fact, C.S. (as I like to call him) wrote an entire review on the trilogy that is quite glowing.
He’s on his way to convincing me to try reading the series again. If you have any other good reasons for me to give it a second go, feel free to share. 🙂
