How It Began
How It Began E-mail

            After hearing a presentation on the life and works of C. S. Lewis as part of a summer Sunday school curriculum, a handful of eager readers decided to form a C. S. Lewis book club in the fall of 2000.  The group continued to meet bi-monthly for 16 years, during which we covered most of the Lewis canon.

         Early on, we were able to find study guides for some of Lewis's better known books.  However, when we got to his other works, we were on our own.  These study guides grew out of an attempt to help us identify the key points and provide a springboard for group discussion.
