Summary
For more than half a century, C. S. Lewis's Narnia series has captured the imagination of millions. In C. S. LEWIS: A LIFE, Dr Alister McGrath recounts the unlikely legacy of this Oxford don, who spent his days teaching medieval English Literature and his nights writing a bestselling fantasy series for children. To write this biography McGrath studied all of Lewis's correspondence and archival materials in chronological order, so as to illuminate afresh this much-loved author's life. Alister challenges some of the previously held beliefs about the timing of Lewis's shift from atheism to theism and Christianity. This definitive biography paints a portrait of a deeply original thinker who became an inspiring, though reluctant, prophet for our times. Accessible and engaging, this is a fascinating portrayal of a creative genius who continues to inspire millions of readers around the world
