Who the heck is he?, I thought, when I found his name on a blog of Methodius. I had a friend once by the name of Robert Williams and I was a great fan of Ted Williams, arguably the greatest hitter of all time, but Charles Williams? Who could that be?
Well, it didn’t take me long to find out this morning. In perusing Methodius’ blog (he has two other ones also) and links, I found that a favorite Williams novel is “Descent into Hell” and that he was a member of the so-called Inklings group. Other members of this group? Why, none other than C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, author of my favorite book, The Hobbit, and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and he gets praise from T.S. Eliot.
The older I get, the more I realize I don’t know.
