Becoming C. S. Lewis A Biography of Young Jack Lewis (1898–1918) by Harry Lee Poe
Poe delves deeply into Lewis's dark school days, his relationships with his father and brother, his friendship with Arthur Greeves and his atheism and conversion. He spends much of the book Lewis's reading and how it influenced him to become a Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature, and, more importantly, to become a Christian. The conflict between the materialist philosophy and atheism of his teacher and his spiritual leanings is especially interesting, although heavy.
Any fan of C.S. Lewis will enjoy this deeply thought-out and insightful look at the great man. I am sure that Lewis himself would be pleased with this book!
