This book was a very inspiring look at the spiritual life of C.S. Lewis. I found it to be fascinating. It is informative, drawing not only from Lewis's books and letters, but even from personal interviews with many people with whom he corresponded. I was so impacted by the book, I wrote a lengthy review of it on Amazon.
