Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was a brilliant scholar, aclaimed writer, literary critic, and Christian apologist following his Church of England conversion. He is particularly honored for his contributions in literary criticism, apologetics, and children's and fantasy literature.
Of his over thirty books and numerous essays (the majority of which have remained in print since his death), the most well-known are The Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, and The Screwtape Letters. The Chronicles of Narnia series is especially popular and has been adapted into several plays, radio productions, and feature films. Most recently Time magazine listed the first book in that series, as one of the top 100 English language novels written between 1923 and 2005. Lewis' works have been translated into over thirty languages and millions of copies have been sold worldwide.
