Drawing on Lewis’ autobiographical works, books by those who knew him personally, and his apologetic and fictional writing, this spiritual biography brings the beloved author’s story to life while shedding light on his best-known works.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This book has the essential quality of a biography — it’s reliable.”— Walter Hooper, C. S. Lewis’s personal secretary and editor
“This book has the essential quality of a biography—it’s reliable.” Walter Hooper, C. S. Lewis’ personal secretary and editor
“Devin Brown has always been my go-to source for all things related to Middle Earth and Narnia. In A Life Observed, he shows us Lewis’ remarkable journey from hardened skeptic to one of the most joyful, thoughtful, and influential apologists in the history of Christianity. Like Lewis, Devin is a pleasure to read, and you can’t help but feel a little smarter — and a little happier — when you finish this book.”— Micheal Flaherty, cofounder and president, Walden Media
