C.S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of the 20th century. The Chronicles of Narnia continues to inspire the imaginations of children today while introducing them to biblical themes. His thirty-eight books are still in circulation today as his influence continues to expand to new generations.
The Life and Faith of C.S. Lewis, narrated by Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley, was originally broadcast on public television. Explore the life of Lewis from his childhood in Northern Ireland, the loss of his mother, the impact of World War I on his beliefs, his career at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, his friendship with J.R.R.
