Editorial Reviews


"Ever the engaging and warm-hearted scholar, author Robert Velarde manages to instruct us in the details of Lewis's life and thought while also keeping us thoroughly entertained. A delightful journey in the company of the most congenial of companions." (Jim Ware, author, God of the Fairy Tale and Finding God in The Hobbit, and coauthor, Finding God in the Lord of the Rings, Finding God in the Land of Narnia and Shedding Light on His Dark Materials)

"Robert Velarde brings amazingly fresh creativity to this work based on the writings of C. S. Lewis. Velarde exhibits extensive knowledge of Lewis's canon and brings fresh insights about his work. Whether one is a veteran reader or is new to Lewis, Robert Velarde's Conversations with C. S. Lewis will stoke a fire of interest in the works of this beloved author." (Alex McFarland, president, Southern Evangelical Seminary)

"Robert Velarde has pulled off a rare and wonderful feat: a book that is at once enjoyable, edifying, erudite and apologetically engaging. Bravo!" (Douglas Groothuis, professor of philosophy, Denver Seminary)

"C. S. Lewis, imagining what the resurrection might be like, once wrote to his fictitious correspondent Malcolm, 'I can now communicate to you the fields of my boyhood--they are building-estates to-day--only imperfectly, by words. Perhaps the day is coming when I can take you for a walk through them' (Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, Letter XXII). In Conversations with C. S. Lewis, Robert Velarde takes us on just such an imaginative journey with C. S. Lewis, not only to the fields of Lewis's boyhood, but throughout the major scenes of Lewis's unparalleled life. What C. S. Lewis fan hasn't longed, and dreamed of what it would be like, to actually sit down with Lewis and ask him questions about his life and thought? With this book Velarde momentarily quenches a thirst which most Lewis fans thought only a heavenly Lewisian conversation would ever satisfy.

However, that is not all. Conversations with C. S. Lewis is a creative apologetic unequaled since Peter Kreeft's Between Heaven and Hell was first published. This is a book eminently suitable for passing on to one's atheist, agnostic and seeking friends. If one wants to become acquainted with the basic outline of Lewis's life and thought or if one desires to explore in an entertaining fashion the greatest philosophical and theological questions of all time, reading Conversations with C. S. Lewis by Robert Velarde is an excellent place to start. However, let the reader beware: once you pick up this book and begin to read you won't want to put it down until you have walked with C. S. Lewis to the surprising end of this fascinating journey." (Will Vaus, author of Mere Theology: A Guide to the Thought of C. S. Lewis)

"An engaging and imaginative fantasy journey through C. S. Lewis's life and thought that nicely blends two very different kinds of story lines: biographical vignettes and theological arguments. The result is a kind of mix of The Great Divorce, It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol. This book should be made into a movie." (Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy, Boston College, and author of C. S. Lewis for the Third Millennium and Between Heaven and Hell)
