C. S. Lewis, a British novelist, poet, and Christian apologist, has been called one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. He wrote over thirty books, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, and Out of the Silent Planet, which have since become literary and spiritual classics. He abandoned his Christian faith at the age of thirteen. Serving in the British Army during World War I, he was wounded in the Battle of Arras, France. Discharged from the Army, he returned to Britain and published his first books: two collections of his poetry. He met and befriended the author J. R. R. Tolkien around this time. In 1931, at the age of thirty-three, he converted to Christianity. Thus began the most fruitful and productive phase of his writing career. He died in November 1963. Three further works of his were published posthumously.
