C.S. Lewis still a favorite among Catholics

September 22, 2006

C. S. Lewis’ legacy lives on!

Of the readers of Evangelical Catholicism who voted in the latest poll, 71% preferred C.S. Lewis to Soren Kierkegaard, Jaroslav Pelikan, N.T. Wright and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Honestly, I was a little surprised at the results. I thought Wright and Kierkegaard would have ended up with more votes. Both are excellent reading, the former for biblical studies and the latter for the meaning and demand of Christian faith. My favorite, Jaroslav Pelikan, didn’t do so well either. I hope this doesn’t mean that Catholics are not reading him. Pelikan is without question the greatest Church historian of the 20th Century.

Look for the next poll, which will focus on the worst liturgical innovations!
