C.S. Lewis has been a family favorite for a long time. The first time I read The Chronicles of Narnia and knew anything of C.S. Lewis was after Dan and I were married. He was always horrified at first to hear of famous classics I had not read, and one particular Spring Break he gave me the boxed set of the series to read. Naturally, I read them straight through from morning to night until I finished. We gave a set to my nephew that year for Christmas.
Watching Shadowlands together was a precious date night with my husband almost 15 years ago, and I can still remember laughing and crying. We read Mere Christianity together and led a small group through the book. Once we had children, we purchased and listened to all of the Radio Theatre dramatized productions from Focus on the Family for the Narnia books on family car trips during holidays like Thanksgiving. They are wonderful, and my children love all things Narnia because of those audios. Each of our children has received either paperback or hardcover editions of the Narnia books as they reached an age where they could read the books. I was so excited to find out this week that Focus on the Family released C.S. Lewis at War.
In honor of C.S. Lewis’ birthday, I thought it would be fun to put together a post in tribute to his life and work – and also useful for homeschool families who would like to study his material together!
