C.S. Lewis --> 10 Fun Facts!

We all know C.S. Lewis from his famous Chronicles of Narnia books, with his ability to depict Aslan as Jesus the Christ so perfectly. A Christian man, who was once an atheist has always been intriguing to me, and not just for his talented writing, but for his love toward Christ in his writing. He was one of the boldest men of his time when it came to speaking about his Christian beliefs. His Legacy is our gift.
Thank you Clive!

10 fun facts about C.S. Lewis:
