9780006280835: Surprised by Joy

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.

Review:

‘He is admirably equipped to write spiritual autobiography for the plain man, for his outstanding gift is clarity. You can take it at two levels, as straight autobiography, or as a kind of spiritual thriller, a detective’s probing of clue and motive that led up to his return to the Christianity he had lost in childhood.’
Isabel Quigley, Sunday Times
