Surprised by Joy (C. S. Lewis Signature Classic) [9780007461271]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'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. When first published the Sunday Times called it a 'spiritual thriller'.


AUTHOR:

Born in Ireland in 1898, Clive Staples Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54, where he was a contemporary of Tolkien. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. C. S. Lewis was for many years an atheist, until his conversion, memorably described in his autobiography `Surprised by Joy': I gave in, and admitted that God was God ... perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England. He is celebrated for his famous series of children's books, the Narnia Chronicles (which have been filmed and broadcast many times), as well as his literary criticism and science fiction. C. S. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
