Jack: A Life of C.S. Lewis
George Sayer

While C.S. Lewis is appreciated by many for his views on Christianity, this biography transcends his religious views. George Sayer, a personal friend of Lewis, does an amazing job of comprehensively covering his life. A contemporary of Tolkien, Dyson and other "Inklings," Lewis pushed him-self to understand the world around him. It was his curiosity and voracious appetite for knowledge and debate that marked his struggled conversion to Christianity. Sayer's book is a well-rounded account of one of the 20th century's most profound thinkers.
