Critic Reviews

“The essays in this collection cast plenty of light on the thinking of the man who was probably the greatest Christian apologist of the twentieth century.” ( Church Newspaper)
“The essay by Jean Bethke Elshtain, explicating  The Abolition of Man, is so powerfully written and exquisitely reasoned as to make it alone worth the cost of the entire book.” ( Christian Librarian)

A wonderful Lewis review

This is a great book. I have listened to it twice and read it and probably will read parts of it again. It brings out points that I didn't see and reminds me of the great things all over again. I especially enjoy the narrator, Ralph Cosham. He has become the voice of C. S. Lewis to me.

Over My Head

Would you listen to C. S. Lewis as Philosopher again? Why?

Yes. I need to study it in order to grasp at least a little more each time

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Hearing what C.S. Lewis might have said to certain questions based on what he said in his writings.

Which character – as performed by Ralph Cosham – was your favorite?

N/A

Any additional comments?

I have no training in philosophy so much of the vocabulary and concepts went over my head but I want to understand it so will listen again to catch more and know where I need to do more research. C.S. Lewis is my favorite Christian apologist and author for both fiction and non-fiction.

Heavy on Philosophical Debate, Light on Lewis

Where does C. S. Lewis as Philosopher rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Toward the bottom

What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

love his erudite accent...what I would imagine of old-world philosophers.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not a book for film

Any additional comments?

I was expecting more CS Lewis and less philosophical jawboning
