"In Surprised by Joy, C.S. Lewis shares his enthralling spiritual journey through his early life, chronicling his conversion to the Christian faith. ... Lewis starts with his childhood in Belfast, then describes his boarding school years and his youthful atheism in England, moves to his experience in World War I, and ends in Oxford. Through it all Lewis explores his lifelong search for joy and its role in pointing him toward god."--Book cover.
