403 C.S. Lewis Quotes

Clive Staples Lewis is widely known for his fictional (most notably The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape letters) and non-fictional Christian writings (most notably Miracles and Mere Christianity). Lewis has an amazing story of growing up in a Christian family, in his early teenage years becoming an atheist, but later coming back to God. In a writing later in his life, this is what he had to say about coming back to Christianity: “.. I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England”.
