Over the years I've read excerpts from Mere Christianity and have heard the name C.S. Lewis repeatedly but I never realized that before he was one of the most famous Christians that he was actually a professing atheist. From Atheism to Christianity is the journey of Clive Staples Lewis and his 15-year journey from materialistic atheism to Christianity
Author Joel D. Heck did a wonderful job of writing Lewis's story. This book is incredibly well researched and leaves no stone unturned. Heck did the majority of his research from Lewis's books themselves as well as other sources about the beloved author. It is fascinating to see the progression as well as the motivation for C.S. Lewis's choices, not only on his spiritual journey, but his life in general. You see where his inspirations stemmed from, what his focus was on as an adolescent, and each piece of his 15-year journey to Christianity. You are introduced to the books Lewis was reading during that time as well as authors that helped mold his thinking.
The impact of the death of his mother when he was ten years old was pivotal. Lewis was raised in a religious home but after her death Lewis was done with religion. As his story progresses, you begin to see his thinking slowly change and develop over time, eventually evolving to Christianity.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever questioned their faith, who are themselves an atheist, or anyone who would like to read about an incredible man on a wonderful journey of faith.
