Friday Fun Facts: The Day the Wardrobe Closed a Final Time

A giant in Christian literature, C.S. Lewis, died on this day 50 years ago. His death was overshadowed by the Kennedy assassination. A brilliant writer, he authored many well-known works of nonfiction and fiction, including Mere Christianity; Surprised by Joy; The Abolition of Man; The Problem of Pain; The Screwtape Letters; and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

He was an atheist and made a long journey to faith. After he came to Christ, he became one of the greatest Christian apologists of the 20th century. Here are a few of his quotes on faith:

“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”

“God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.”

“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.'”

  1. I love all of C.S.Lewis that I have read so far, but any of his “Chronicles of Narnia” books are at the top!
