He was an atheist who became the best-selling Christian author in history. He was an intellectual prig who was transformed into a man who had a mind and heart awake to holiness. He had no children, but few men in history have been so deeply loved by children. He was a mirror reflecting another Face. He was an Oxford Don and a Cambridge Professor. He was an expert in Medieval and Renaissance English who gripped the imagination of millions through his wartime broadcasts of Christian truth for the BBC. These broadcasts later became his famous book, Mere Christianity, through which more people were converted to faith than through any other Christian book in the 20th Century. His involvement in Oxford University's Socratic Club became the highlight of many a student's University days. He was C. S. Lewis and his name is synonymous with legendary kindness, intellectual rigour, a love of nature and perhaps his greatest creations, Aslan and the land of Narnia. His writings still bring shivers of wonder to his readers. Controversial genius that he was, his life is a beacon for those who struggle with doubt and faith.
