The Making of C. S. Lewis is the second volume in a biographical trilogy covering Lewis’s life from 1898–1963. This installment surveys a period of Lewis’s life that is not well known, beginning with his years as a young adult and devout atheist at the end of his service in World War I, followed by his arrival at Oxford as a budding scholar. Harry Lee Poe offers a unique perspective on Lewis’s radical conversion to Christianity influenced in part by his friendships with well-known Christians such as J. R. R. Tolkien, Nevill Coghill, and Hugo Dyson. This volume offers readers a unique opportunity to observe Lewis’s development as one of the most important Christian apologists of the 20th century. With a lucid and clear biographical tone, Poe brings to life one of the most influential writers of modern times, showcasing his shift from an opponent of Christianity to one of its most ardent defenders.
