  • "C.S. Lewis tells of passing from atheism to Christianity."@en
  • ""In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." Thus C.S. Lewis describes memorably the crisis of his conversion in his famous autobiography. Lewis was for many years an atheist, and in SURPRISED BY JOY he vividly describes the spiritual quest which eventually convinced him of the truth and reality of the Christian faith."

  • ""A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere ... God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous." This book is not an autobiography. It is not a confession. It is, however, certainly one of the most beautiful and insightful accounts of a person coming to faith. Here, C.S. Lewis takes us from his childhood in Belfast through the loss of his mother, to boarding school and a youthful atheism in England, to the trenches of World War I, and then to Oxford, where he studied, read, and, ultimately, reasoned his way back to God. It is perhaps this aspect of Surprised by Joy that we-believers and nonbelievers-find most compelling and meaningful; Lewis was searching for joy, for an elusive and momentary sensation of glorious yearning, but he found it, and spiritual life, through the use of reason. In this highly personal, thoughtful, intelligent memoir, Lewis guides us toward joy and toward the surprise that awaits anyone who seeks a life beyond the expected. "Lewis tempered his logic with a love for beauty, wonder, and magic ... He speaks to us with all the power and life-changing force of a Plato, a Dante, and a Bunyan."--Christianity Today "The tension of these final chapters holds the interest like the close of a thriller."-Times Literary Supplement 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. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Till We Have Faces."@en
