Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 — 22 November 1963) was a British author and put theologian. He’s best known for his works of fiction, notably The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, also because of his non-fiction Christian apologetics, for example Mere Christianity, Miracles, along with The Issue of Pain.
They served on the English school at Oxford University and so are busy in the casual Oxford literary group called the Inklings.  Based on Lewis’s 1955 memoir Surprised by Joy, he had been baptised at the Church of Ireland, but dropped away from his religion during adolescence. Lewis returned into Anglicanism in age 32, because of the effect of Tolkien and other friends, and he turned into an”ordinary layman of the Church of England”.

Lewis wrote over 30 novels  that have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold hundreds of copies. The books which make up The Chronicles of Narnia have offered the most and have been popularised on stage, TV, radio, television, and theatre. His philosophical writings are commonly mentioned by Christian apologists from a number of denominations.
Back in 1956, Lewis wed American author Joy Davidman; she died of cancer four decades later at age 45. Lewis died on 22 November 1963 from kidney failure, 1 week prior to his 65th birthday.
