Clive Staples (“Jack”) Lewis or was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1898. He was quite gifted academically, holding positions at both Cambridge and Oxford. Although he was an agnostic, Lewis made the acquaintance of a fellow Oxford Christian, named J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien went on to play a significant role in Lewis’ conversion, sharing many hours in discussions regarding the faith. In a letter to his friend Arthur Greeves, Jack describes a pivotal conversation, saying “I have just passed on from believing in God to definitely believing in Christ, in Christianity.” Lewis went on to be a notable Christian writer and apologist.
