A fun and easy introduction to the renowned Christian philosopher and novelist In December 2005, Disney will release a live-action movie version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the first in a series of films based on C. S. Lewis's best-known works, the Chronicles of Narnia. For fans of the novels and of Lewis's other works, this guide will illuminate the allegories that enrich the Narnia series-and introduce readers to Lewis's life and adult books, such as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters. The book explores how Lewis went from being a confirmed atheist to a committed Christian and offers an easy-to-understand overview of Lewis's major nonfiction works, summarizing his arguments on the nature of God, the reason miracles occur, the purpose of pain, the need for absolutes, and other issues.

Richard Wagner has authored several books, focusing on two very different themes: religion and technology. In the religious genre his books include: The Expeditionary Man, The Myth of Happiness, and several "For Dummies" books designed to make faith "easily approachable for postmodern readers". These books include C.S. Lewis & Narnia For Dummies, Christianity For Dummies, and Christian Prayer For Dummies. On the technology front his books include: Adobe AIR For Dummies, XSLT For Dummies, and Building Facebook Applications For Dummies. Wagner also works as Senior Developer for Maark, a strategic and interactive B2B marketing firm in Boston. He also was the inventor/architect of NetObjects ScriptBuilder. Wagner graduated from Taylor University and went to graduate school at American University.
