C.S. Lewis Reviews
MY REVIEW:At only 127 pages in length this short biography is a comprehensive overview of the life of C.S. Lewis. We all know who he is...but seldom have I talked with someone who knows about his life. I was surprised to discover as I read that he did not have the upbringing that I expected he had. His life experiences were broad and diverse. This short, yet fascinating, look at his life is a testimony to the grace of God that can span any gap. God redeemed the life of a man who had turned on Him and had dabbled in a variety of false doctrines to become a man who's life would point many to Christ. The life of C.S. Lewis is yet another example of our sovereign God and is a story that will be sure to encourage and challenge you.
While I've loved Lewis' writing from childhood, I'd not read much about him beyond what I could glean from others. This book was a good place to start. Swift did a fine job of helping me understand the life of Lewis, but in such a short volume it was not possible to give more than a taste. Yet a taste was exactly what I needed. I plan to read more from Lewis and more of Lewis this next year and Swift's biography fell in a fitting place for me.
Fast but enjoyable read. A great intro to C.S. Lewis' life. For a little more in depth reading on Lewis' journey to faith in Jesus I also recommend David C. Downing's book "The Most Reluctant Convert." So thankful for God's loving and relentless pursuit of Lewis and His loving and relentless pursuit of all humans!
A simple clear overview of Lewis' life, written with humor and sympathy. Especially recommended for young readers of Narnia who want to know more about the author before or after they read those stories.
I read this book back in the 90's and I loved it. Good introduction to the life of C.S. Lewis for a younger audience.
