Known for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, C.S. Lewis wrote the wittiest defense of Christianity ever. Humorist John Cleese won AUDIOFILE Earphones for his 1999 enactment of the correspondence between two devils plotting the damnation of one man's soul. Ralph Cosham is a slightly less demented fiend, but the text itself remains hilarious. And the pre-digital Cleese version cut 36 minutes from a book with zero percent body fat. Here Cosham's organ-like voice also lends resonance absent from that production. This is, therefore, the best audio ever spoken of the funniest defense of Christianity ever written. Both the Cleese and Cosham readings are available at audible.com. Bad news for "our father below." B.H.C. 2007 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
