The Weekly Hit List: September 6, 2013

The Christian Post interviewed Devin Brown about A Life Observed.

“A new spiritual biography of the great Christian scholar and author C. S. Lewis, released in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of his death, portrays a man utterly transformed by his conversion to Christianity – only in Jesus did this proud loner find friends, joy, and laughter.

“If you listen to the people who actually knew Lewis, his whole life is full of joy and laughter – after he became a Christian,” Devin Brown, professor of English at Asbury University and author of A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis, told The Christian Post in a Wednesday interview.

“His major takeaway from 15 years of studying Lewis is that the Chronicles of Narnia author’s gradual conversion fundamentally transformed his life from sorrow into joy.”
