Explore a repackaged edition of C. S. Lewis's diary form his early twenties, a thought-provoking work that shows his earliest thinking about war, atheism, religion, and humanity.
While he was serving his country in the Great War (WWI), C. S. Lewis, the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, and Christian apologist, made deal with a close friend and fellow soldier. If one of them died, the survivor would look after his family, a promise that Lewis honored. Developing a close friendship with his fallen friend's mother, Jane King Moore, Lewis moved into the Moore household after the war. When he returned to Oxford, the twenty-three-year old Lewis, then a staunch atheist, struggled to adjust back to life in post-war England. As a way of helping the young man, Jane encouraged him to keep a diary of his day-to-day life. Those reflections are collected in this insightful journal.
Spanning five remarkable years in Lewis's life, All My Road Before Me covers the inspirations and intellectual and spiritual development of a man whose theology and writing has had a considerable impact on the Christian world.
