    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.
