The Life and Writings of C.S. Lewis - Louis Markos Really great course. I found Markos to be enthusiastic & knowledgeable about Lewis & his work. I know some of the complaints about Markos' presentation is that he seems to be too devoted to Lewis & not critical enough of Lewis' works. But I found that refreshing actually. Too often today most treatments of authors in the past are post-modern deconstructionist hack jobs & are riddled with chronological snobbery, i.e. dismissing the author as being backward on topics we present day people consider ourselves to be so enlightened upon. Very rarely do we actually take the author seriously & try to really get inside their work & thought. Markos does a fantastic job of taking us inside Lewis' work & also letting us know the man as well. Would highly recommend this course.
