C.S. Lewis was another person who had a dramatic encounter with Jesus.
He was a brilliant scholar at the University of Oxford in England, but he was an agnostic, and certainly didn’t believe in Jesus.
There was a small group of scholars there who would meet regularly at a local pub to discuss philosophy. One in the group was Tolkien, the author of Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, and several other famous books.
Tolkien was a Christian, and he would continually throw in some discussion about Jesus. In fact, he tried to encourage Lewis to accept Him. But he wouldn’t.
After many meetings – over several years – and much discussion, one day Lewis relented. He was astonished at the change he felt, and the understanding that came with this acceptance.
C.S.Lewis became a new man.
Over the following years, C.S.Lewis became one of the world’s greatest Christian writers. He was totally transformed in mind and in character.
