Lewis and Sayers: Blogs to Read

I came across some great articles in the blogosphere this week. Two in particular I want to share with you, mainly because they deal with a couple of my favorite authors: C.S. Lewis and Dorothy L. Sayers.

  • I love anything to do with C.S. Lewis. In truth, there is no other modern Christian writer who has had more to do with the development of my faith than Lewis. My favorite of his books is The Great Divorce, though A Grief Observed and The Problem of Pain have been constant companions of mine over the past few years as I wrestle with my own grief and suffering. With that aside, I was thoroughly entertained by Rob Stroud’s article on sobriquets (nicknames) and Lewis over at Mere Inklings. Check out his article What Do People Call You?

 

  • Another favorite author of mine is Dorothy L. Sayers. I think I’ve already mentioned her about 10 times since starting this blog in January! Laura Martin over at Enough Light has written an excellent review of Sayers’ essays Are Women Human? Astute and Witty Essays On The Role of Women In Society. I’ve read this book so many times that I’ve memorized entire passages from it and I’m always buying copies of it to hand out to people I think would benefit from Sayers’ wisdom. Anyway, go read her review and then go read Sayer’s book (it is a must read for everyone, women and men)…and then come back and tell me what you think!

Author: Rebekah Durham

Rebekah Durham lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her three children.  She is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary and has written for numerous publications. She is an avid reader and in particular an admirer of C.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton, G.K. Chesterton, Henri Nouwen, and Dorothy L. Sayers (in no certain order). She'd also blindly follow Miss Marple (Agatha Christie's famous spinster sleuth) anywhere she wanted to go.

  1. Thanks for linking to me! Hopefully this great book by Sayers will get out there and be read by more men and women! I recently acquired a copy of A Grief Observed, and it is on my “to read” radar.
