The following serves as an OVERVIEW for a series begun in late August, 2015. Updates were initially done weekly, but are now the first weekend of every month.  There is also a group on Facebook I started that you are welcome to join. 

As you might guess from the title, the focus is on exploring questionable quotations attributed to C.S. Lewis. While I’ve written and spoken on the topic previously, this will be the “go to” place to find out the results of whether or not a quote claiming to be from Lewis is actually by him. 

This page serves as the “table of contents” to quickly find a quote that either has been, or will be examined.

Below are the links to the actual articles. If there is no link yet then that means the article hasn’t been released yet.

Also note that because a quote is listed below it doesn’t necessarily mean it is NOT from Lewis. As the result of my investigations  I’ve come up with three types, or categories that are explained in my INTRODUCTION to Confirming C.S. Lewis Quotations article. So, be sure to follow the link to understand the alternative results.

If you are on Facebook and what to keep track of things there then join my group called Confirming C.S. Lewis Quotations.

Finally, here’s an article I did that summarized the most visited posts among the first sixteen I wrote: it’s called Top 5 Questionable Lewis Quotes for 2015

The Questionable Quotes

Select whichever quotation you will like to learn more about why it is questionable. In some cases it either close to what Lewis actually said, or the context makes it *questionable* to share because it could be misunderstood.
