Description

C.S. Lewis’ books have sparked billion dollar blockbusters, sold 100 million copies, and have been translated into over 40 languages. But who influenced this influential man? C.S. Lewis credited the great British writer G.K. Chesterton with helping to lead him to Christ. With that in mind, what might it have been like to read Chesterton’s books with Lewis? What passages did Lewis reflect on? What made him stop and jot a note? Are there parallels in Lewis’ own writing? Alan C. Duncan’s new book Gilbert & Jack: What C.S. Lewis Found Reading G.K. Chesterton helps answer those questions by taking you inside Lewis’ library for an exclusive look at his handwritten annotations in Orthodoxy and other Chesterton classics.

Whether he was thinking deeply or laughing out loud Lewis’ pencil was in hand while he was reading G.K. Chesterton. Over and over again Lewis was confronted with Christian thoughts on patriotism, nature, modernity, language, children, marriage and life itself. Gilbert & Jack shows that all these themes can also be found echoing throughout Lewis classics like The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Abolition of Man, Surprised By Joy, Mere Christianity, and more.

Gilbert & Jack is available now as an eBook and as an audiobook featuring original music and voice actor Rupert Stutchbury portraying both Lewis and Chesterton.

All purchases of Gilbert & Jack go toward the completion of the American Mission Center until the building is up and running and the team finally working from the studios.
