Numerous biographies have been written about this great theologian, literary critic, and novelist, but we have found this to be the best.

Sayer describes Lewis' early years, hinting at childhood evidence of the brilliance and eccentricity that would later become Lewis' hallmarks. He discusses Lewis' academic career, his life-transforming conversion to Christianity, and the role of religion in his life. With honesty and compassion, he covers Lewis' controversial relationship with Mrs. Moore and his passionate marriage to Joy Davidman.

    " inspiring and surprising. this book about one of the great geniuses of modern day reads like a novel. I'm about half way through but it's been really good. I have been slightly slacking on my med school stuff because I'm so into it. "

    " Sayer knew Lewis well, was a student of his and then became a friend. This gives great insight into all of Lewis' character. "

    " While A.N. Wilson is too hard on Lewis, Sayer's portrait is too sympathetic. Lewis' adoring fans will probably enjoy this book, which barely challenges the saintly image that many have of him; more serious readers will probably be disappointed. "

    " An amazing book on the life of CS Lewis. It was well written by a close friend of his and I felt after reading it, that I almost knew him personally. His is a story of courage, commitment, service to others and an amazing intellect. It is also a story of a developing faith, his ups and downs and the way that he worked through life, and faced death. "
