Item Description...
In this intimate, candid, and sometimes surprising community biography of the celebrated author and Christian apologist, twenty-four men and women who knew C.S. Lewis-as teacher, colleague, friend-offer their reminiscences and impressions of the complex man behind the critical and academic acclaim. Through their recollections, we see "Jack" Lewis dazzling Oxford as he takes on atheists, materialists, and a host of other challengers. Most poignantly, we see him in everyday settings: striding up and down the platform at a railroad station, presiding over leisurely dinners with students, expounding on the virtues of the pub. "The net effect of this collection," said the Catholic Review, "is to make us feel that we know Lewis as well as [his] friends." And to quote the New Yorker, "The heterogeneity of the contributors assures a variety of Lewises, but certain traits appear in all these accounts: intelligence, imagination, gusto, a sense of fun, and, most frequently, magnanimity."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
important reprint with unfortunate preface to this new edition  Nov 25, 2006
Reprint of "C. S. Lewis at the Breakfast Table," an important Lewis resource. My only concern is the regrettable negative comments, in the Preface to the Third Edition, by the editor James Como, on the former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, who retired in 2002, THREE YEARS before this present volume was published. Mr. Como uses these comments to address what he sees as wrong with the present state of Anglicanism, even going so far as to compare Carey with the episcopal ghost in "The Great Divorce"! While Mr. Como's view of the Anglican Church today would certainly have to be considered fair game in a new preface to this volume, to zero in at this point on Carey is odd, to say the least. Not only is the man now well into retirement, he is, as is well known, also one of the more distinctly theologically conservative Archbishops of recent times, the sole exception to this being the ordination of women. There are many other ways Como could have made his points, easily, without coming across, strangely and gratuitously, as expressing a personal animus. Truly regrettable, especially in a volume such as this -- and a serious lapse of judgement on the part of both the editor and publisher.
Great Book but be warned -  Apr 24, 2006
This is an excellent book on C. S. Lewis, but it is a re-publication by a differnt publisher, and they have retitled the book; it was previously published under the title "C.S. Lewis at the Breakfast Table." So if you already have that book as I did, this one is exactly the same.
