The intensely personal and candid autobiography of C. S. Lewis initially published in 1955. Lewis's spiritual journey that led him from a conventionally Christian childhood in Belfast to a youthful atheism and, finally, back to an assured Christianity continues to be of first importance to admirers of his work and today, more than ever, to anyone concerned with the compatibility of the rational and the spiritual.
In this book Lewis tells of his search for joy, a spiritual journey that led him from the Christianity of his early youth into atheism and then back to Christianity. This book, together with his early diary All My Road Before Me, form the closest thing we have to an autobiography.
C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. A Fellow and tutor at Oxford until 1954, he spent the rest of his career as Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, inlcuding The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity and Surprised by Joy.
