Biography & Memoir
Theologian and historian Professor Alister McGrath marks the 50th anniversary of the death of C S Lewis with a new and definitive portrait of the author of the Narnia chronicles. McGrath studied newly published correspondence for this biography and challenges previously held beliefs about the timing of Lewis’s move from atheism to Christianity. It is the portrait of an eccentric thinker who became an inspiring prophet for our times.
McGrath is professor of theology, ministry and education at King’s College London and president of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He is a prolific writer and his works include Why God Won’t Go Away and The Dawkins Delusion? Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine.
