    1. Clyde Kilby (1902-1986) is remembered fondly by students he taught literature and writing to at Wheaton College. He is known more widely still for being an early evangelical champion of C.S. Lewis,  J.R.R. Tolkien and the Inklings. He founded Wheaton's  Marion Wade Collection which houses manuscripts and letters from Lewis, Tolkien, Owen Barfield, Charles Williams, Dorothy Sayers, G.K. Chesterton and George Macdonald.In A Well of Wonder(Mount Tabor Books, 2016), editors Loren Wilkinson & [...]


    2. This was interesting and thought provoking but I don't usually read literary criticism so I'm not sure if it was goodif that makes any sense. just trying something new.


    3. Ever since I first read the Narnia and Middle Earth series by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R, Tolkien, I have been fascinated by the lives and faith of both men. Over the years I have continued to read more of not only their own writing, but books on both Lewis and Tolkien, as well as their group The Inklings. Needless to say, I am excited every time a new book comes out in the hopes of learning more. The latest offering is Clyde S. Kilby's A Well of Wonder: Essays on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and the In [...]

Kilby accurately captures the spirit of their writings and lives and delightfully expands on key points in their thinking. Readers who are new to these authors will grow, and readers who are familiar with them will enjoy revisiting much loved passages. Negatives: This book isn't that deep. Only in a a couple of chapters does Kilby rise above an intermediate level summ [...]


    5. Christians can be literalists. I think it's a disease engendered by the Enlightenment. I have nothing against the Enlightenment, but at times the rationalism it engendered has diminished the power of imagination. Fortunately, from time to time, figures have emerged who have broken the barriers and invited us to broaden our hearts and minds to embrace the fruit of our imagination. Among those who have done so is a collection of figures who came to be known as the Inklings. Best known amongst this [...]


    6. Still want to read this, but I have not received the copy I won through giveaway. I'm sure it's a lovely book. One day I hope to read it.
