Surprised by Joy by C. S. Lewis

"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.

About the Author

Born in Ireland in 1898, C.S. Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54, where he was a contemporary of J.R.R. Tolkien, among others. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. One of the most gifted and influential Christian writers of our time, he is also celebrated for his Narnia Chronicles and his literary criticism and science fiction. C.S. Lewis died on 22 November 1963.
