Despite areas of difference in both theology and temperament, C. S. Lewis has long been a revered figure among evangelicals, lauded both for his apologetics (on display in such classics as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain) and his fiction (particularly the Chronicles of Narnia series, now being adapted into major motion pictures). Successive generations of Christians, children and adults alike, continue to discover and delight in Lewis’s matchless prose.
