IN THIS REPEAT: Interview on Learning about the books that influenced Lewis.
Lewis was influenced by many people and also by books from various authors. Late in his life he was asked "What books did most to shape your vocational attitude and your philosophy of life?" His answer to this was published in the June 6, 1962 issue of The Christian Century. While it could be debatable to call this his all-time top ten, it is interesting to consider them. In fact, that's what C.S. Lewis's List does, it examines each of the ten books. This title is the result of a conference held in 2012 where ten different speakers spoke on one of the books in Lewis's list. Editors David and Susan Werther took the content and worked with the authors to create the resulting book. Many of the contributors have been a guest on All About Jack before and are noted below. William O'Flaherty spoke with David Werther recently to discuss this book that is new for 2015.
