This week, we're joined by special guest host Dr. Nikita T. Hamilton, who covers A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis.
Grief is a topic we've wanted to cover for a very long time on the podcast, and Nikita knocks this episode out of the park.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.
We cover each of the four chapters in this A Grief Observed book review. If you'd like to purchase the book or learn more about the author, you can do so here.
