A Rational Look at Christianity; Basing Reason in Truth

Okay, so this is news from 1937, but given that The Hobbit was recently a major motion picture -- in fact, three major motion pictures -- and given that C.S. Lewis was a close friend of J.R.R. Tolkein, I thought it was interesting when the Paris Review ran a re-print of Lewis' 1937 three paragraph review of The Hobbit. The article can be found here: C.S. Lewis reviews The Hobbit, 1937.

What is fascinating is that Lewis is astute enough to recognize that The Hobbit, although it appears to be little more than a children's book, "may prove to be a classic." Once again, he was right.
