Lord of the Ring Series, The Hobbit movies… All Hollywood renderings of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Although you may be familiar with him and his movies, you many not be as familiar with his dear friend, C.S. Lewis. The two were members of an informal discussion group known as the “Inklings”. Lewis, a prolific author as well, wrote “The Chronicles of Narnia” series, “Mere Christianity”, “Pilgrim’s Progress”, and “The Screwtape Letters” to name a few.
“Shadowlands” starring Anthony Hopkins as C.S. Lewis, tells the love story of between he and American poet Joy Davidman, her tragic death from cancer, and how it challenged his Christian faith. The depth of his wisdom and faith are evident from his works and from the quotes you see here. Enjoy!
