aka The Frazzled Mom
C.S. Lewis has been one of my top favorite authors. From Narnia, to Pilgrim’s Regress, Mere Christianity and more, Lewis has always been to the point, even painfully so at times. One question I’d always had while reading his stories: how did he go from a child raised in a Christian home, to an atheist, and later to Christianity?
Joel Heck does an excellent job of following the life of Lewis starting from an early age. The death of his mother was merely one factor that challenged his perspective on life and God. The reader is taken on a journey, as Lewis argues his atheistic views. But there is a turning point. Throughout From Atheism to Christianity: The Story of C.S. Lewis, Heck provides support for his evidence through references of letters (and books) written by Lewis himself to other individuals. If there was ever a question as to the support of this book, the reader has the means through which to research it.
Not to spoil the journey, the reader will have to grab a copy and discover what Lewis discovered. What convinced him there was a God? What turned him from an atheist to a Christian?
