Product Description

C.S. Lewis fascinates Christians almost as much as his riveting tales of Narnia and other alien worlds. His fiction writing is often understood as a mirror of his spiritual journey, a question many of his fans know little about. How did this atheist become a Christian and so powerfully testify to the gospel in his writings?

Fresh, insightful, and moving Devin Brown's A Life Observed focuses on Lewis' writings in order to better understand the real-life spiritual journey Lewis experienced. In doing so, he spotlights important facets from each of Lewis' works that commonly go unnoticed. Lewis did not separate his experience from his writing; his writing is an expression of how he interpreted his own world. This book--brief, concise, and penetrating--allows us to see Lewis at a deeper level.

Endorsements

This book has the essential quality of a biography--it's reliable.
-Walter Hooper,
C. S. Lewis's personal secretary and editor

Devin Brown has always been my go-to source for all things related to Middle Earth and Narnia. In A Life Observed he shows us Lewis's remarkable journey from hardened skeptic to one of the most joyful, thoughtful, and influential apologists in the history of Christianity. Like Lewis, Devin is a pleasure to read, and you can't help but feel a little smarter--and a little happier--when you finish this book.
-Micheal Flaherty, cofounder and president, Walden Media

[This] is the story of Jack's real and true life--not the mere flash of the firefly in the infinite darkness of time that is our momentary life in this world, but the one he left this world to begin--and how he came to attain it. Brown helpfully works his way through the dross and difficulties of Jack's earthly life in search of every factor, every influence, every event, and all of the people who showed Jack where the narrow path lay and taught him where it led. . . . I grew up with Jack as my guide. This real Jack whom I knew walks the pages of this book.
-Douglas Greshem

    If you have ever read Lewis' autobiography "Surprised By Joy" and found it hard to follow... Do not despair. Read this book. I have read other books by this author, and he is amazing, interesting, and knows what he is talking about. He loves C. S. Lewis (and J.R. R. Tolkien) and has written perhaps the best book I have ever read about Lewis.One extra thing I realized from this book was how Romans 8:28 so often applies to the life of many of us BEFORE we accepted Jesus, as well as in the present and future, as it so obviously did in the life of Lewis.

    This is an excellent exploration of the spiritual development and growth of C S Lewis as told through his own words in his books, letters, and talks, with observances by those who knew him. Author Devin Brown is a renown professor who has taught on Lewis for many years at Asbury University.

    One of the things that often disturbs me in biographies, has been avoided in this book----authors who have never met their subject, making assumptions about their subjects rather than letting their subject's words speak for themselves. Here we are shown that Lewis was raised in the church, but his study of philosophy turned him into atheist thinking. Discussions with fellow authors eventually led him on a logical pathway to Christianity. We are shown how God brought Lewis to Christ through logic and emotions. We see how Lewis' books show his growth in his relationship to his savior, and how he shared this with his readers. Also, we learn of his personal life, and how that affected his spiritual growth and writings.

    Well written and extremely informative book just about the spiritual growth of C S Lewis. Brown gave the reader links to further information on all the other aspects of Lewis' life for those who want to know more. Interesting book about an extremely interesting and popular author. Fifty years after his death, Lewis' Narnia fiction books, and his books on Christian apologetics are still best sellers.
