A great overview
To those who have never read C.S. Lewis this will be a wonderful introduction. And to those very familiar with the beloved author it will feel like bumping into an old friend after much time apart. While it is not an in depth treatment of his work it is still well worth the purchase.

Inspiring; compelling style; tiresome reader
I appreciated McGrath's writing in the style of C.S. Lewis. I think Lewis himself would have been glad to read a summary of his thoughts and teachings, arranged by topic in an approachable format. I recommend this for the uninitiated and those familiar with Lewis's work. After I listened to this, I re-read two of Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia (The Magician's Nephew and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) and I am embarking on a third. Through McGrath, I was reminded of Lewis's brilliant way of engaging the imagination to get to deeper truth.
About the Reader
I listened to Ralph Lister read this. On the positive side, he has a beautiful voice with a British accent. On the negative side, his reading inflection became tiresome as he spoke almost every sentence with the same lilting, rhythm. It was like a BBC newscast over and over. Certainly not among the worst readers, but somewhat distracting.
