In 2003 I had the pleasure of meeting Douglas Gresham, stepson of C.S. Lewis, when he spoke at Denver Seminary. Douglas had been kind enough to participate in the online discussion forums for a grad course on "The Philosophy of C.S. Lewis," taught by the inimitable Dr. Vernon Grounds (I had the joy of serving as his teaching assistant that semester). Douglas had flown in from Ireland in order to work on some details about the film "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Fortunately, for us, Douglas spent about 3 hours answering all kinds of questions about C.S. Lewis. It was a great time and I remember it well. Anyway, here's a picture someone snapped of the two of us (Douglas is on the left). If you get a chance, read Gresham's books Lenten Lands and Jack's Life for some personal insights into C.S. Lewis.
