During the 1920s, C.S. Lewis and fellow member of the Inklings, Owen Barfield, engaged in a series of philosophical and theological debates they liked to refer to as “The Great War”. The Journal of Inklings Studies (an academic journal which is published twice a year and covers various topics on the works of C.S. Lewis and the other Inklings) has just released a special supplement containing previously unpublished works by Lewis and Barfield from the time of these debates.
These writings come from the time before Lewis’ conversion to Christianity as he was grappling with spiritual matters while Barfield was an adherent of the philosophical school called “anthroposophy”. It was apparently at about this time that Lewis became a theist (believing in the existence of God, but not yet accepting the Christian view of God) partly through Barfield’s influence. A limited print of the supplement has been available since Monday 16 February 2015. If you are interested in purchasing a copy or want more information, visit The Journal of Inklings Studies website.
