Today is C.S. Lewis’s 117th birthday! To celebrate, here are five books that explore his life and work.
1. C.S. Lewis – A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet by Alister McGrath
C.S. Lewis – A Life is a comprehensive and highly readable biography that systematically delves into each stage of Lewis’s life, from his Irish childhood to the years of sorrow following his wife’s death. McGrath analyses a number of Lewis’s most read works, with a particular emphasis on The Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity. McGrath also presents a compelling argument that Lewis scholars have heretofore misdated Lewis’s conversion to Christianity, making A Life unique among Lewis biographies.
