I did not start out as a fan of C.S. Lewis. I may be now. Still not the kind of fan who is all praise and no criticism.
As the result of a long period of research I had to do on Mr. Lewis and his writings, I was mostly won over. I set out to show that despite his renown within conservative circles, he was much more of a liberal than a conservative. Ultimately, I found that to be wrong. More often than not, CSL defies easy categorization, and I think that is what draws me to him. He is a careful and rigorous thinker, and when you disagree with him you’ll find yourself working hard to pin down exactly why.
The word “heretic” in the sub-title is used in only the most affectionate of ways. Jack was the best kind of heretic - sometimes to conservatives and sometimes to liberals. In that I see a reflection of real intellectual honesty, a dedication to telling what he saw as the truth regardless of which label might result.
So on this blog, I want to talk about all those sorts of things. That is what it’s “about”.
