He held academic positions in English literature at both Oxford University (Magdalen College, 1925–1954) and Cambridge University (Magdalene College, 1954–1963). He is best known for his works of fiction, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.

Clive Staples Lewis was born on 29 November 1898 and lived until 22 November 1963. He was born in Belfast, North Ireland into a Protestant Ulster family. Lewis completed his degrees before taking up a post teaching English at Magdalen College, Oxford from 1925 to 1954. He was a prolific writer and formed a close friendship with other Oxford fellows such as J. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield. In his book, Surprised by Joy he writes that he came to Christianity: kicking, struggling, resentful, and darting his eyes in every direction for a chance to escape.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. Lewis is a great series of books for both the young and young at heart. If you want to discuss this book with your children, I also recommend ROAR! A Christian Family Guide to the Chronicles of Narnia.

Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast, Ireland, on November 29, 1898, to Flora August Hamilton Lewis and Albert J. Lewis. As a toddler, Clive declared that his name was Jack, which is what he was called by family and friends. Lewis was a prolific author of fiction and nonfiction who wrote dozens of books over the course of his career. His faith-based arguments as seen in texts like The Great Divorce (1946) and Miracles (1947) are held in high regard by many theologians, scholars and general readers. Throughout the series, a variety of Biblical themes are presented; one prominent character is Aslan, a lion and the ruler of Narnia, who has been interpreted as a Jesus Christ figure.

The personal story of one of the most influential Christian writers of all time

From his celebrated children's stories of Aslan and the land of Narnia to his imaginative insight in The Screwtape Letters, Clive Staples Lewis has become one of the most prominent Christian statesmen of the twentieth century. His writings are known worldwide, and his own story offers readers an illuminating and fascinating look into the events and factors that shaped his life and thinking.

Christians familiar with Lewis' books may be surprised by what they find: the faith-shattering early loss of his mother, a father who remained aloof, constant illness which threatened his education, a tormenting principal who strengthened his belief in hell, a near death in France during World War I. This story of C. S. Lewis a confirmed agnostic and skeptic at the age of thirty-one and of his remarkable conversion to Christianity and subsequent commitment to influence others for Jesus Christ make for inspiring reading.

When God "closed in" on him, life would never be the same!
