I enjoyed this offering from The Great Courses series in part. The first half, where Markos discusses and explicates much of Lewis's Christian apologetics, was fascinating listening. Once he got into Lewis's fiction, however, I was much less interested. This is of course partly because I have no time for [The Chronicles of Narnia], but I also started to get irritated with Markos, who seems so taken with Lewis that he never really critiques him and became a little preachy himself. I also wish he had better addressed some of the thorniest bits of tCoN a little more thoroughly (the racism, the misogyny) rather than kind of handwaving them away. Not a waste of time, but one too many "A modern feminist would tell you" followed by a reductive statement about feminism and the like for me to be fully on board. I just didn't trust that he was engaging fully enough or with enough nuance with any of the material. ( )

An excellent short overview of the works of C.S. Lewis. One of my favorite authors and I wasn't disappointed with this series. Lewis was a fascinating man, and this shed some light on some aspects of his life and work that I wasn't familiar with. ( )

Great video series. After about fifteen minutes of listening, I grew accustomed to his speaking style. He has a severe case of "Reep-a-Cheep" voice.
