C. S. Lewis is probably best known for his much-loved Chronicles of Narnia. But he also wrote several works of Christian apologetics, including Mere Christianity (1952) and Surprised by Joy (1955), which remain immensely popular and widely praised for their accessibility and readability. Lewis believed that Christianity was first and foremost about experiencing God in one’s life. While there are doctrines that cannot be ignored, it is the experiential dimension of Christianity that has the ability to transform lives over time. Quite appropriately then, Brown’s biography recounts events from Lewis’ life and quotes from his books, letters, and diary in order to tell the story of his spiritual journey. And it’s a fascinating tale, especially when one considers that Lewis was not always a Christian. When he did embrace Christianity as a man in his early thirties, he described himself as the most dejected and reluctant convert. Fans of Lewis will find much here to savor. So, too, will those interested in a man’s lifelong attempt to live out his faith. --Christopher McConnell
From the Back Cover
C. S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of our time. But while it was clear from the start that he would be a writer, it was not always clear he would become a Christian. A Life Observed tells the inspiring story of Lewis's spiritual journey from cynical atheist to joyous Christian. Drawing on Lewis's autobiographical works, books by those who knew him personally, and his apologetic and fictional writing, this spiritual biography brings the beloved author's story to life while shedding light on his best-known works.
"[This] is the story of Jack's real and true life--not the mere flash of the firefly in the infinite darkness of time that is our momentary life in this world, but the one he left this world to begin--and how he came to attain it. Brown helpfully works his way through the dross and difficulties of Jack's earthly life in search of every factor, every influence, every event, and all of the people who showed Jack where the narrow path lay and taught him where it led. . . . I grew up with Jack as my guide. This real Jack whom I knew walks the pages of this book."
--Douglas Greshem (from the foreword)
