Heroes of the Faith: C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis was a most unusual man.  An atheist who came to Christ at age 30 while a professor at Oxford University, he would become the most popular defender of the Christian faith in the 20th century.  He was a lifelong bachelor, who fell deeply in love with Joy Gresham and married her a few years before he died.

He was a scholar of medieval English literature, a popular writer of Christian books, a children’s writer and a novelist.  He had an incredible impact.

Though this biography was written for a younger audience, it is quite good.  Lewis always fascinates.
