C.S. Lewis's Attitude about Christian Fiction
Clergy hope 'Lion, Witch, Wardrobe' a draw:
"Lewis' stepson Douglas Gresham, the film's co-producer, told the audience that Lewis didn't set out to write 'a Christian book.'''Exactly!
But Lewis, whom Gresham referred to by his nickname, Jack, was profoundly influenced by his own religious beliefs. 'Jack didn't write a Christian book, but Jack was a man committed to his Christianity,' Gresham said. 'His fiction is informed by his deep Christian faith.''' (Emphasis added.)
