American Minute with Bill Federer November 29

His death went unnoticed, as he died the same day John F. Kennedy was
shot, but his works are some of the most widely read in English

Originally an agnostic, he served in World War I and became a
professor at Oxford and Cambridge.

He credits his Catholic friend and fellow writer, J.R.R. Tolkien,
author of "Lord of the Rings," as being instrumental in bringing him
to faith in Christ.

Among his most notable books are: The Screwtape Letters; Miracles;
The Problem of Pain; Abolition of Man; and The Chronicles of Narnia,
which include The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe.

His name was C.S. Lewis, born NOVEMBER 29, 1898. Over 200 million
copies of his books have sold worldwide and, 40 years after his
death, continue to sell a million copies a year.

In Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis wrote:

"All that we call human history - money, poverty, ambition, war,
prostitution, classes, empires, slavery - is the long terrible story
of man trying to find something other than God which will make him

C.S. Lewis wrote:

"Christianity...is a religion you could not have guessed...It is not
the sort of thing anyone would have made up. It has just that *****
twist about it that real things have."
