PAPERBACK

A repackaged edition of the revered author’s spiritual memoir, in which he recounts the story of his divine journey and eventual conversion to Christianity.

Lewis begins with his childhood in Belfast, surveys his boarding school years and his youthful atheism in England, reflects on his experience in World War I, and ends at Oxford, where he became "the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." As he recounts his lifelong search for joy, Lewis demonstrates its role in guiding him to find God.

Editorial Reviews

''Fascinating.''

– Nation

''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.''

– Sunday Times

''Anyone approaching this book as a study in the psychology of conversion will find the greatest interest in the dual paths - intellectual and intuitive - which converged at last. But the casual reader looking merely for an enjoyable book will equally value many other parts.''

– Saturday Review
