All of us who have read books by and about C. S. Lewis know how he became a Christian. His pilgrimage from atheism to theism to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is well documented. But the published record reveals little about his spiritual formation—that is his gradual growth from an infant-like faith into robust Christian maturity.
In these four lectures, Lyle Dorsett, a leading expert on C.S. Lewis, presents some new light on the major elements of Lewis’s spiritual formation with emphasis on how and why he changed over the years. Relying on hundreds of unpublished letters, nearly fifty oral history interviews, and untapped evidence from Lewis’s personal library, Dr. Dorsett shows how Lewis’s own spiritual transformation became the impetus behind his important role as a spiritual director to countless souls—through his books, to be sure, but also through voluminous personal correspondence designed to care for the souls of hundreds of people who sought his advice.
