    Screwtape really made me cognizant of the enemy and how they are present and watching everything we do... Definitely a good read.

    C.S. Lewis was highly insightful. One of my favorite nonfiction authors. I've read and reread some of his stuff over and over. I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the Problem of Pain, because I liked it as well.

    I really liked the Space Trilogy. Along with the breathtaking visuals and alien world building done throughout, I liked how he deconstructed so many modern assumptions and ideologies. Sometimes rather hilariously.

    Lewis is pretty good at debunking.

    C.S. Lewis was a giant of a Christian and he influenced me ever since I read the Chronicles of Narnia at age 10 and still does now that I've read every scrap written by him. I am also eternally grateful to him for introducing me to George MacDonald, whose writings impacted me even more; something I did not think possible.

    "I have never concealed the fact that I regarded [MacDonald] as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him. C.S. Lewis on George MacDonald
