I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of From Atheism to Christianity through the publisher and Netgalley:

From Atheism to Christianity is the remarkable story of C.S Lewis’s conversionfro! Atheism to Christianity.  It tells of how he went from believing in no religion at all to giving his heart and surrendering it to Christ.  

We learn that in part the cause of C.S Lewis Atheism was his relationship with his Father, and the loss of his Mother. We learn that from ages six to twelve C.S Lewis was sad and lonely.

In 1921 halfway through his undergraduate program C.S Lewis met Dr. Frederick Macran an atheist priest.  Macran insisted that Jesus was a great teacher and nothing more.

Lewis read William Morris, George MacDonald (whose Christianity Lewis ignored for a long time.  He read G.K Chesterton, Samuel Johnston, Edmund Spenser and John Milton.  He studied the writings of Sir Thomas Malory and W.B Yeats.

On June.11, 1922 C.S Lewis went for a bike ride into Oxford and walked into Christ Church.

C.S Lewis was facing bouts of depression at the time.

Late in 1929 C.S Lewis lost his Father Albert.  A loss that profoundly affected him and his brother.

In 1930 C.S Lewis came back to his Christian faith.

I give Atheism to Christianity five out of five stars.

Happy Reading
