    This book of essays from 2005 is made more useful by its divisions according to theme. Parts IV (Lewis and Literature) and V (Lewis and Faith) happen to contain the 5 essays I'm most interested in rereading, though others may find "Adaptations" or "Related Authors" more constructive or relevant to their interests.The scholarship, as well as the familiarity each author shows with Jack's work, was impressive; unfortunately there were occasions where the scholarship obscured the point being made.
