Yet it is perhaps the rational aspect of his conversion ...show more that makes Lewis's story so compelling, especially to contemporary readers. He is, most persuasively, a modern man who has thought his way to God. Initially published in 1955, Lewis's journey - his "surprise" - continues to be of first importance to admirers of his work and today, more than ever, to anyone concerned with the compatibility of the rational and the spiritual. ...show less

Lewis recounts his searc ...show moreh for joy, a spiritual journey thatled him from a traditional Christian childhood in Belfast to a youthful atheism and, finally, back to a confident Christianity. Lewis candidly and sensitively describes his early school days, his experiences in the trenches during World War I, and his undergraduate life at Oxford-where he reasoned his way back to God. It is perhaps the common-sensical aspect of his conversion to Christianity that makes Lewis's story so compelling and meaningful, especially to contemporary readers who are believers and nonbelievers alike.
