  Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. 

  He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.

C. S. Lewis was the most popular and best-selling theologian of the entire Twentieth Century, an amazing fact considering that technically, he wasn't a Theologian at all, but an Oxford Professor of English Medieval and Renaissance literature. 

 His books include  The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy series and his science fiction Space Trilogy.  Both series are must reading for all Christians interested in these genres.  His most famous book among non-Christians is The Screwtape Letters. __________________

...dialogue between man and God.

In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, C. S. Lewis meditates on many questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God.  

He considers practical and metaphysical aspects of prayer, such as when we pray and where.  He questions why we seek to inform God in our prayers if God is omniscient, whether there is an ideal form of prayer, and which of our many selves we show to God while praying.  

The concluding letter contains provocative thoughts about "liberal Christians", the soul, and resurrection. ________________________
