    Congratulations, Sørina. To hold in your hands a finished piece of work that you have long labored over is quite a satisfaction. I’ll be adding a copy to my library. Many happy reviews.

    Great! Congratulations!

    (I am preparing an introduction to Williams for a Christian Classics Study Group and, in thinking to mention it, was wondering when I could suggest it might be available…)


    • Great, David! I hope you enjoy seeing your essay in print again, too.

        Yes, indeed (and thanks, again)! I’m still a bit bewildered that (for all practical purposes) nobody seems to have picked up on Williams’s second major work, after my intro, until you tackled it in the most thorough, satisfying, and useful way (including a trial performance-reading!). But, when I think of all the Inklings – and even Williams – scholarship I have not managed to keep up with, perhaps it’s not so very strange – and obviously, accessibility was a big factor – anybody who might want to double-check what I said, or discuss further, would have had to go to the Wade and devote some time to it, there – or to incur the great effort (including expense) of obtaining a copy. Grevel Lindop’s new book is an obvious exception, but since he’s been tackling everything together, and not taken time out to publish on The Chapel separately, his thoughts on it have remained ‘pending’ where a wider readership is concerned. It is great to have it so readily – and, as academic publishing goes, inexpensively – available, and Grevel’s book will only add to encouraging future attention, while its readers will benefit from being able to go on from his account to seeing for themselves. Great days! – however much, or little, more is now published about it specifically in the immediate future.
