Publishers Description
"C. S. Lewis died in 1963, but I met him last week." Robert Velarde tells of an imaginative journey in which the literature professor mysteriously appears in Thomas Clerk's hospital room. "Call me Jack," the writer says as he invites Clerk to step into a wardrobe. From there the two embark on a remarkable journey through Lewis's life. They experience pivotal events from Lewis's childhood and meet many of his real and imaginary friends; they visit the Kilns with his brother, Warnie, and spend time in Oxford with fellow writers and Inklings J. R. R. Tolkien and Charles Williams. They also sit with Lewis's dying wife, Joy Davidman, and they even enter the world of Narnia. Along the way, Lewis challenges Clerk's thinking about the existence of God, the truth of Christianity, the problem of pain and suffering, the nature of love and much more. Are human beings a cosmic accident? Can we have morality without God? Was Jesus just a guru? Can we really believe in heaven and hell? Tom and Jack discuss these and many other questions, and they invite you to eavesdrop on their conversations. Prepare yourself for some of the most invigorating discussions you may ever experience this side of heaven.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
unique read: humor, insight, compelling journey  Jan 18, 2010
Since my teen years Lewis has played a large role in forming and articulating my thoughts about not only religion, but academics, literature and much else. I try to read as much as I can about the man to gain new insights from his thought, and this book is one of the best introductions in that regard.

Reminiscent of Peter Kreeft's Socrates Meets Jesus: History's Greatest Questioner Confronts the Claims of Christ, Velarde's main character finds himself in dialogue with Lewis while at hospital. They begin to wax philosophical, and Lewis takes Tom on a journey that recounts the main historical, philosophical and theological developments in Lewis' life, all the while in dialogue with Tom's own doubtful worldviews.

Again, this has been one of the more enjoyable books about Lewis (and theology/philosophy) that I have read in a while because while it is engagingly written it cuts to the existential importance of the ultimate questions, and does so in a manner that is not preachy or cheesy. It's also a very quick read if you want it to be. It really should be turned into a film.

If you are interested in Lewis and have read most of his books, you may find these useful as well: Jack: A Life of C. S. Lewis, The Life and Faith of C.S. Lewis: The Magic Never Ends, Narnia & Beyond: Chronicles of CS Lewis, The Magic Never Ends - The Life and Work of C.S. Lewis, THROUGH JOY AND BEYOND, The Magic Never Ends: An Oral History of the Life and Work of C.S. Lewis (the book) and C. S. Lewis: Images of His World.

Wishing you the best on your journey further in.
 
an impactful vision with C.S. Lewis  Oct 20, 2008
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Any book that moves me to tears is well written and crafted. The angle the author uses to introduce the basic Christian principles through C.S. Lewis writings is wonderful. I highly recommend and encourage this as a book to lend to anyone, especially non-Christian folks.
 
Truth And Fun - In One Book  Sep 19, 2008
Worth reading. Worth quoting. Robert Velarde's book shines a light upon the path many of us take in finding truth and fulfillment. It also helps the reader - in this case me - remember the real issues facing each of us today: Do we follow a truth which has been around and proven since the beginning of time, or do we just make up our own and hope for the best?

This novel is fun, creative and eye-opening. I'll read it again, soon.
 
Imitating C.S. Lewis  Aug 24, 2008
It is said that the greatest compliment one can give another, is that of imitating them. This creative work of fiction provides us an abundance of such compliments. The author accurately reflects not only Lewis' thoughts and history, but also his writing style and even-handed tone. One can very nearly pick up Lewis' accent and infliction of speech.

An Atheist, seemingly on his death bed, receives a visit from an already dead C. S. Lewis who walks the Atheist through the more significant junctures of Lewis' life and thoughts. In the course of this journey, Lewis gently challenges the Atheist (and all of us) to think harder about the things that should matter most.

I am usually a harsh critic of any sort of fiction. This book encouraged me to broaden the boundaries of my narrow perspective. I found it to be a great combination of creative entertainment and stimulation of the gray matter. This book is well worth the reader's time and attention!
 
He created the books that inspire so many children today  Aug 10, 2008
With the recent success of the Chronicles of Narnia movies, interest in the author of the Narnia books, C.S. Lewis, has risen once again. "Conversations with C.S. Lewis: Imaginative Discussions About Life, Christianity, and God" is a fictional interview with C.S. Lewis as written by one of the most dedicated scholars of his work, Robert Velarde. Covering Lewis's life, his beliefs, and his friendships with other writers as he created the books that inspire so many children today, "Conversations with C.S. Lewis" also touches heavily on Lewis' religion and beliefs, some of which were not wholly traditional. "Conversations with C.S. Lewis" is solid look at C.S. Lewis, highly recommended especially for Narnia fans.
