Not A Tame Lion

The Spiritual Legacy of C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis was the prolific author of more than sixty classic writings including such masterpieces as The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles Of Narnia, and Mere Christianity. But to call him a leader? Through Lewis’ wrestling with eternal questions and concepts he reshapes our thinking, realigns our priorities, and redefines our world view. In doing so, he leads the way to biblical thinking and in many ways causes us to grapple with Francis Schaeffer’s question, “How should we then live?”  Not a Tame Lion is an entertaining and insightful look into the life and thinking of C. S. Lewis.

As one of the most brilliant, creative minds of the twentieth century, Lewis crosses over all literary, philosophical, and religious boundaries. A world-renowned scholar of medieval literature at Oxford University, he was able to write and lecture in such clear, direct language that ordinary men and women were fully able to comprehend the truths he extolled.

Lewis was a man whose tremendous intellect was wedded to a powerful imagination.  For it was in his flights of literary fantasy that his deepest perceptions of God were birthed. In this remarkable look at his leadership in action, we see why, a generation after his death, Lewis continues to be numbered among our best-selling authors and our most influential thinkers.
