Surprised By Laughter

Full Product Description

'Surprised by Laughter' looks at the career and writings of C. S. Lewis and discovers a man whose life and beliefs were sustained by joy and humour.
All of his life, C. S. Lewis possessed a spirit of individuality. An atheist from childhood, he became a Christian as an adult and eventually knew international acclaim as a respected theologian. He was known worldwide for his works of fiction, especially the Chronicles of Narnia; and for his books on life and faith, including 'Mere Christianity,' 'A Grief Observed', and 'Surprised by Joy.' But perhaps the most visible difference in his life was his abiding sense of humour. It was through this humor that he often reached his readers and listeners, allowing him to effectively touch so many lives.
Terry Lindvall takes an in-depth look at Lewis’s joyful approach toward living, dividing his study of C. S. Lewis’s wit into the four origins of laughter in Uncle Screwtape’s eleventh letter to a junior devil in Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters: joy, fun, the joke proper, and flippancy. Lindvall writes, “One bright and compelling feature we can see, sparking in his sunlight and dancing in his moonlight, is laughter. Yet it is not too large to see at once because it inhabited all Lewis was and did.”
'Surprised by Laughter' reveals a Lewis who enjoyed the gift of laughter, and who willingly shared that gift with others in order to spread his faith.
