    Surprised by Familiarity

    While I grew up in the United States and never attended boarding school, I found amazing similarities between Lewis' quest for understanding the existence, power and authority of our Divine Creator - and my own. Lewis was not a theologian, but in terms of relating human experience to Christian faith, there was none better in the 20th Century. The Four Loves, Mere Christianity and his works on grieving (written after the death of his wife) are all excellent for a reader desiring to better understand his or her own experiences.

    Very Insightful

    Lewis is a very intriguing character, as are the characters that he wrote about. This was a very compelling and enlightening look into Lewis' account of what made him who he was. I have enjoyed reading it.
