Additional time for more discussion.

C.S. Lewis is generally regarded as the foremost Christian thinker and writer of the 20th century. Among his colleagues at Oxford University, some regarded him to be the most brilliant man of their generation. A first-rate scholar, philosopher, apologist, theologian, literary critic, science fiction writer, poet, and author of children’s fantasy novels, he wrote with charm, wit, insight, and occasional eloquence.

Lewis was neither a professional philosopher nor a theologian, historian, or social scientist, but he thought and wrote perceptively in all these fields of study. A rarity among intellectuals, he integrated both reason and imagination into his life and works. Although Lewis’ writings on political philosophy are often overlooked, he was in fact as acute and perceptive in this vital area of life as any scholar of the 20th century, and his views on political philosophy are as relevant and practical today as when he originally wrote them. In that regard, all Americans who take their citizenship responsibilities seriously would benefit greatly from his insights and wisdom.
