5 Golden stars for the title alone, Jeannkins!

Brilliant post. I have a crush on your mind.

C.S.Lewis seems, to me, the embodiment of the verse "out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks (writes?)". His writing comes from deep inside his relationship with God and flows from his mind, his heart, his gut, his soul. I would not wish away two weeks of my life (I'm old enough!) but I cannot wait to read part 2. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

LURV this. And now I feel compelled to go read the Space Trilogy again.

You made it so meaningful Jeanne! I look forward to the next installment.

"Lewis taps into his vast knowledge of theology, philosophy, mythology, astrology, literature, history, and science, then sets his imagination free to explore their implications in an invented world.

Jeanne, I can't agree more. Is there any other fictional writer who has woven theology so intricately into the fabric of his stories, that we can miss their practical implications?

Each time I read Lewis, I find myself often stopping amidst a scene, to ponder what new revelation he has hiding under the wrappings of character and dialogue from a magical world.

Looking forward to Part II.

Great post! Perelandra was a life-changing read for me, over ten years ago. Thanks for encouraging others to take a look.

Heather

I'm assuming you know of the opera (http://www.perelandraproject.org/). What story isn't made better by song and dance? ;)

Perelandra is one of my favorite books. Lewis awes me. This post does, too.

Jeanne,

You never cease to inspire me to read new books, and this is no exception! I've not read the space trilogy - wouldn't normally be attracted to that type of backdrop. But I do love Lewis, and am awed by his ability to weave truth and story into one cohesive, edge of your heart, tip of your brain adventure. Thanks for this wonderful post - I'm off to the library!!

Love,
Madison

Thanks for the super supportive comments, everyone. In the second installment I'll bare my guts to the world. It will be a lot harder to write, so prayers are appreciated.

Mary, thanks for the golden stars. I'm placing them on my resume. (Also, my brain is flattered and wanted me to let you know it's available this weekend.)

Lori, I'm honored by your kind words and sincerely hope I don't let you down two weeks from now. Thanks so much!

Steph, Bonnie, and Rosslyn, thanks for the votes of confidence. Lewis is truly amazing. He inspires me to pursue excellence in faith, knowledge, and craft. What a gift to the literary world.

Heather, I was not aware of the opera. Fascinating! Song and dance most assuredly make the world go round, but I admit I was disappointed they didn't photoshop that picture and make her green.

Thanks, Billy. Mutual fandom is fun. :)

Madison, I don't think you'll be disappointed at all. Look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Thanks again, everyone. Have a fabulous weekend.
Love, Jeanne
