Not a lot of people know that the former home of C. S. Lewis can be found in a suburb of Oxford called Risinghurst Estate (Estate meaning Parish, Township, or Development). The poscode for those with satnav is OX3 8JD. Those without will need to look for Lewis Close ('Close' means cul-de-sac) off Kiln Lane, Risinghurst, Headington, Oxford.
Clive Staples Lewis was known throughout his lifetime as 'Jack' but how did he come to get that nickname? He detested the names Clive Staples but as a ten year old boy whilst living in Ireland and after his pet dog 'Jacksie' or 'Jacksy' was killed by one of the first motorised vehicles in Northern Ireland he decided that he would remember his beloved pet by himself adopting the name. Over the years that followed Jacksie or Jacksy became 'Jacks' and Jacks became 'Jack'.
C. S. Lewis is considered by many throughout the world as the greatest Christian Apologetic of the 20th Century.
Shouldn't he be titled Saint C. S. Lewis of Oxford? What do you think members?
