r13 – Lewis’s Slow Conversion

    Listen to as PODCAST: LMR13-Slow Conversion 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many people take their time making important decisions, but you may not believe how long it took C.S. Lewis to go from believing in God to becoming a Christian.

It was in the spring or summer of 1929 when Lewis, at the age of 30, to quote his autobiography, “admitted that God was God.” He was alone in his room where he knelt and prayed. He went on to say he was “the most dejected and reluctant convert.” However, Lewis had only converted to theism at this point.

It was over two years later that he finally believed in the claims of Christ. The tipping point was a long conversation he had with J.R.R. Tolkien and Hugo Dyson about myths. Then it took nine more days to think it over before Lewis’ conversion was complete.
