In the tradition of previous collections of essays and
memoirs, such as Light on C. S. Lewis (1965) and C. S. Lewis at the
Breakfast Table (1979), comes a new primary source anthology from Oxford
University Press culminating a seven-year project that originated in
the archives of the Oxford C. S. Lewis Society. Roger White, lead editor
of C. S. Lewis and His Circle: Essays and Memoirs From the Oxford C. S.
Lewis Society (Oxford University Press, 2015) describes the process of
crafting this unique assortment of transcribed talks gleaned from the
last thirty years of the Society’s history. The illuminating story of
how this collection was developed provides the backdrop for a literary
introduction to the book’s contributors
and their work.
The impressive list of contributors includes: Elizabeth
Anscombe, John Wain, Owen Barfield, Rowan Williams, Kallistos Ware,
George Sayer, Walter Hooper, Alister McGrath, Stella Aldwinckle, and
many others. The presentation also features audio excerpts from the
original Society recordings and brief readings from selected chapters.
Roger White grew up in the Chattanooga area and graduated from Hixson
High School, East Tennessee State University, and University of
Tennessee, Knoxville. Currently he is curator of the Inklings Special
Collection for the University Libraries as well as Professor of Ministry
for the Seminary at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California.
The public is invited.
