"Lewis s diary . . . furnishes a vivid picture of post-World War I Oxford and helps explain the easy erudition he brought to such work as The Allegory of Love." Library Journal
Before he was the beloved writer of The Chronicles of Narnia or the Christian apologist of The Screwtape Letters, twenty-three-year-old C.S. Lewis was a soldier, student, and atheist. Newly returned from the front lines of World War I, Lewis took up residence with the mother of a friend killed in combat and started to make a life for himself in Oxford. At the urging of Mrs. Moore, whose friendship had a huge effect on him, Lewis kept for five years a detailed diary of his day-to-day life giving us a window into the inspirations and development of a man whose theology would eventually have great influence on the Christian world. In All the Road Before Me, we accompany Lewis through his days as a young writer and as a young man, determining his place in the world.
"A disarming self-portrait of Lewis as sensual, self-assured atheist and clandestine family man." Publishers Weekly
C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of beloved works both popular and scholarly: literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and numerous books on theology.
