For years rumors have circulated that all is not well in the literary world of C.S. Lewis. His brother vehemently denied false claims made by those who control the literary estate, but bogus Lewis literature began to appear anyway. Here is meticulously gathered evidence that advances these allegations. Willard Dickerson Jr. of the American Booksellers Association says, "I can vouch for Kathryn Lindskoog's scholarship, integrity, and clear thinking. Her facts ring with truth."

Twenty-five years ago rumors began to circulate that all was not well in the literary world of C. S. Lewis. Lewis's brother vehemently denied false claims made by those who control the C. S. Lewis literary estate but bogus Lewis literature began to appear in print anyway. Since Lewis's books still sell in the millions, powerful forces have been exerted to keep this controversy from surfacing. Author Lindskoog has spent 20 years unearthing old evidence and compiling new data that Martin E. Marty calls "compelling," adding that he hopes Lindskoog "will be heeded." Instead, within weeks of being released, her book's original publishers yielded to pressure and silently dropped it from their active list. Willard Dickerson, Jr., director of education and professional development for the American Booksellers Association has stated, "I am surprised that so many who love the writings of C.S. Lewis have chosen to remain deliberately silent or to suppose the evidence they have that his writings

Kathryn Lindskoog

Kathryn Lindskoog plunged into an independent academic-honors project on C. S. Lewis in 1954, met him in 1956, & has been writing & teaching about him ever since. Although crippled with progressive multiple sclerosis, she has taught literature courses at several colleges as well as New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary & Fuller Seminary. Lewis originally opened the door to George MacDonald & Dante for her, & that has now led to this extraordinary array of discoveries about all three.

:C.S. Lewis is undoubtedly our century's most popular Christian author. His books sell millions of copies every year and countless people testify that they have been delighted, enlightened, strengthened and enriched by his writing--in many cases, since early childhood.
However, some scholars now question the authenticity of several writings published after Lewis's death, while additional evidence points to serious misrepresentations of this beloved author's character, and that of the brother he so loved, by individuals intimately involved with the Lewis estate.
Decide for yourself what you believe. Examine evidence that points to a fantastic hoax that would have amazed Lewis himself.
