It's interesting to see that it's Lewis's less common theological works, and not his fiction or literary criticism that has moved to the top of the most commonly shared list.

I expect that's because it's weighted for obscurity.

Yes, that's true. Usually that's the right thing to do—gets the Harry Potters down!—but not perhaps here.

Has anyone read C. S. Lewis and the Catholic Church by Joseph Pearce?

I have that one, but as is the case with most of my library, I've yet to read it :)

Haven't read it, or anything by Pearce, I'm afraid. Does anyone know if the alleged remark of Tolkien's suggesting that Lewis's protestantism was an effect of lingering Irish protestantism was actually uttered?

I once had a book that was about a discussion that might have taken place between C. S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley as they turned up at the pearly gates on the same day. However, I can't recall the title of the book or who wrote it, and I'd really like to buy another copy. Can anybody here help me with a title?

The Lewis/Huxley/Kennedy debate is in Between Heaven and Hell by Peter Kreeft. I haven't read it myself.

Is Lewis vying for the title of least-read most-owned author, by any chance?

I hope Lewis isn't vying for the title of least-read!

I haven't read Between Heaven and Hell, but now I will be adding it to my wish list!

Has anyone else read the book The question of God : C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud debate God, love, sex, and the meaning of life?

I've read The question of God: C.S. Lewis . . .. I thought it was so-so. Maybe I was just suffering from Lewis-book burnout at the time, though.

BTW, has anybody else heard about the new _C.S. Lewis: Life, Works, and Legacy_ due out next month? At $300, those better be some mighty fine essays!
