C. S. Lewis is perhaps the most beloved modern Christian author. From the Chronicles of Narnia to The Screwtape Letters to Mere Christianity, his works have enthralled and influenced readers of all ages. Yet, though numerous books have been written about Lewis's life and his dramatic conversion to Christianity, none have asked the important question of how he grew spiritually. Lyle Dorsett sets out to answer that question in Seeking the Secret Place.
Drawing on Lewis's books, letters he wrote and received, and more than one hundred interviews with dozens of his contemporaries, Dorsett shows that as the newly converted Lewis filled his mind with scripture and prayer, "his soul gradually became transformed into Christlikeness." The sacraments also contributed to his spiritual formation. To Lewis, being a member of the church was vital to his spiritual development, and he came to have a deep reverence for the Eucharist.
Professors and students in spiritual formation courses, C. S. Lewis readers, and anyone seeking to grow spiritually will value the rich and warm insights found in this book.

While many books have been written to recount the life of C.S. Lewis, and most notably his conversion to the Christian faith, few books have decidedly undertaken the accounting of Lewis spiritual growth as a Christian. Drawing upon Lewis literary works, his interviews, and the many letters he received during his lifetime, professor Lyle Dorsett has written, Seeking the Secret Place: The Spiritual Formation of C.S. Lewis. Here he describes the spiritual growth and devotion of this beloved theologian to his Lord Jesus Christ. Fans of Lewis will not want to go without adding this insightful book to their personal library.
