Jack's mind began to churn with ideas. What could he possibly do with an umbrella-carrying faun running through a snowy wood and a group of evacuee children who were bored living with an elderly professor? Soon Jack had the hazy outline of a story that would draw millions of children into the magical land of Narnia.
From his earliest childhood, C.S. Lewis loved to hear and tell stories. Persuaded that stories could reveal the truth about the real world in a unique way, the literature professor would write more than thirty books, including science fiction, theology, literary criticism, and fantasy.
In an era marked by two world wars, Lewis attacked tough questions about life and faith headfirst. Convinced that the story of Jesus Christ is the truest of all stories, and known for searching out the truth with honesty, clarity, and imagination, the former atheist would become one of the most influential Christians of the twentieth century. (1898 -1963)
