“A fine survey of the many aspects of this perennially interesting topic; any book that brings together the voices of Don W. King, Crystal L. Downing, Andrew Lazo, and Malcolm Guite is worth the read. I find myself with an even deeper appreciation for the roles Dorothy L. Sayers and Joy Davidman played in Lewis’ life and their influence on him as a writer and thinker.”

Janet Brennan Croft Editor of Mythlore: A Journal of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and Mythopoeic Literature. Rutgers University, New Jersey

“This book brings new light, thought, and perception to the subject of women in C.S. Lewis’ life and writings. These essays are full of shared wisdom and cogent argument that will challenge your perceptions of Lewis and his world.”

Brian Sibley writer and broadcaster known for his highly acclaimed BBC serializations of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings

“In reading Women and C.S. Lewis we are invited to be part of an important conversation. Attitudes and resulting actions towards others matter greatly, and this is certainly no less so, when they are informed by understanding based on gender. In this book, we find a variety of voices ‘pursuing truth in the company of friends’ as they thoughtfully reflect upon Lewis’ response to women in both his life and in his writings. Not all contributors in this volume agree, but all take seriously the significance of the issue of gender, and we should as well. Women and C.S. Lewis is a very good place to begin to deepen our understanding, and to help us frame our own considered questions.”
