I think this will be one of the last re-posts I will be doing of posts that readers enjoyed on this blog. This is an especially wonderful one as it is dear to my heart as a writer and reader of Tolkien and Lewis. It's an excellent interview. Enjoy!
From the Ideas website and radio show:
C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Owen Barfield and Charles Williams were the core of the legendary literary group The Inklings at Oxford University. They were united by a love of myth and the belief that it is through the imagination that reality is illuminated. In this two-part series producer Frank Faulk first explores the early life of C.S. Lewis, and the experiences that would shape him on his journey to becoming one of the 20th century's greatest thinkers and writers on Christianity
