For more than a millennium, the city of Oxford has been at the heart of England’s scholastic, political, and religious life. Popular Christian movements have been born here, resulting in radical reform and far-reaching revival. In this lively account, we meet a courageous princess, an outspoken reformer, three martyred bishops, a puritan vice-chancellor, zealous undergraduates, and an atheist academic who became a Christian apologist. This is the tumultuous story of Oxford, from earliest times to the present day.

Cambridge is a world-famous university with a top reputation for scientific work, discoveries, and high-tech inventions. But for centuries, theology was the major subject studied; all students were obliged to enter holy orders until very recent times. For this very reason, Cambridge naturally became the cradle of the English Reformation. This volume explores how the relationship between religion and science is crucial to the story of Cambridge.

David Berkley obtained his degree at Oxford and went on to teach modern languages and religious education. A lay minister, he retired to Cambridge in 1997, becoming an official guide for Christian Heritage based at the Round Church and the tourist office.

When C.S. Lewis’ grandfather hand-carved a wardrobe out of black oak to adorn his family home, he had little idea that it would provide his grandson with the inspiration for one of the world’s best-loved stories. The wardrobe stood for a time in the family home in Belfast, exerting a curious attraction for the children in the house. Two of Lewis’ cousins remember sitting inside it, the door ajar, while the young boy held them spellbound with his stories. This young storyteller would become the author of one of the most famous books in the history of children’s literature, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. In this guide, the author describes how the atheistic Clive Staples Lewis became the most widely-quoted Christian writer of the twentieth century, and explores the places that inspired Lewis’ stories.

Ronald W. Bresland is one of the leading authorities on C.S. Lewis’ Irish life and background. He was formerly a Cultural Traditions Fellow of the Institute of Irish Studies at the Queen’s University of Belfast. His book, The Backward Glance: C.S.
