He was a man of many parts; novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, and Christian apologist. After a short time serving with the British in World War I most of his life was spent in academia at Oxford from 1925-1954 and thence Cambridge from 1954-1963. His greatest work of fiction is, of course, The Chronicles Of Narnia, a wonderful imagination of the mind which has thrilled generation both young and old down the years. As a Christian apologist Mere Christianity ranks as one of the greatest works on Christianity and faith.
