Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
C S Lewis actually became both a storyteller and a discursive religious writer late in life. He was primarily an Oxford (& later on, Cambridge) literary academic, especially a writer on the works of Milton ~~ his Preface To Paradise Lost was a helpful student guide which I made much use of in my Higher Schools course and my Cambridge entrance exam, in which I was fortunate enough to gain entry to Milton's own college, Christ's [though he had, admittedly, gone down some years {about 325} earlier!]. While there I heard Lewis lecture: whatever his faults, he was certainly a gifted and inspiring lecturer.
