C. S. Lewis, un observador del yo infaliblemente honesto y sumamente perspicaz, cuenta v vidamente la trayectoria espiritual que lo llev desde una ni ez cristiana en Belfast a una adolescencia atea y de vuelta finalmente al cristianismo.

Una autobiograf a sumamente personal y sinceraacerca de la conversi n C. S. Lewis, un observador del yo infaliblemente honesto y sumamente perspicaz, cuenta v vidamente la trayectoria espiritual que lo llev desde una ni ez cristiana en Belfast a una adolescencia atea y de vuelta finalmente al cristianismo. Lewis describe sus d as en la escuela a una edad temprana, sus experiencias en las trinches durante la Primera Guerra Mundial y los a os como estudiante universitario en Oxford, donde se encontr otra vez atra do a Dios. El aspecto racional de su conversi n hace que el relato de Lewis sea muy conmovedor, especialmente para lectores contempor neos.

Publicada por primera vez en 1955, esta historia sigue siendo de extrema importancia para los admiradores de sus obras y, ahora m's que nunca, para todos los que tienen inter's en la compatibilidad de lo racional y lo espiritual.

In this highly personal, thoughtful, intelligent memoir, Lewis guides us toward joy and toward the surprise that awaits anyone who seeks a life beyond the expected.

"A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere... God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous." This book is not an autobiography. It is not a confession. It is, however, certainly one of the most beautiful and insightful accounts of a person coming to faith. Here, C.S. Lewis takes us from his childhood in Belfast through the loss of his mother, to boarding school and a youthful atheism in England, to the trenches of World War I, and then to Oxford, where he studied, read, and, ultimately, reasoned his way back to God. It is perhaps this aspect of Surprised by Joy that we--believers and nonbelievers--find most compelling and meaningful; Lewis was searching for joy, for an elusive and momentary sensation of glorious yearning, but he found it, and spiritual life, through the use of reason.

In this highly personal, thoughtful, intelligent memoir, Lewis guides us toward joy and toward the surprise that awaits anyone who seeks a life beyond the expected.

"Lewis tempered his logic with a love for beauty, wonder, and magic... He speaks to us with all the power and life-changing force of a Plato, a Dante, and a Bunyan." --Christianity Today

"The tension of these final chapters holds the interest like the close of a thriller." --Times Literary Supplement
