Widely known for his children's fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis was a prolific writer of both fantasy and nonfiction. Growing up an atheist and converting to Christianity later in his life, Lewis became an important voice for Christian Apologetics, producing works on Christian principles as well as inserting Biblical allegories into his fictional works. Lewis was also an important figure in literary studies as a scholar and professor of Medieval and Renaissance English literature.
