This autobiography of C.S.Lewis's early life, focusing on the spiritual crisis which was to determine the shape of his entire life, now repackaged and rebranded as a key title in the C.S. Lewis Signature Classics range. "In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God!perhaps the most dejeced and reluctant convert in all England." Thus C.S. Lewis describes memorably the crisis of his conversion in his famous autobiography. Lewis was for many years an atheist, and in Surprised by Joy he vividly describes the spiritual quest which eventually convinced him of the truth and reality of the Christian faith.

In Surprised by Joy, C. S. Lewis shares his enthralling spiritual journey through his early life, chronicling his conversion to the Christian faith. “When we set out, I did not believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and when we reached the zoo I did. . . . It was . . . like when a man, after a long sleep, still lying motionless in bed, becomes aware that he is now awake.” Lewis starts with his childhood in Belfast, then describes his boarding school years and his youthful atheism in En-gland, moves to his experience in World War I, and ends in Oxford. Through it all Lewis explores his lifelong search for joy and its role in pointing him toward God.About the Author:
