    I have some familiarity with him, not the entire biography. I know he doubted, became atheistic, studied mythology in England, and then became a minister. He is also responsible for the Narnia series, and a couple other science fiction pieces. I read a great deal of his fiction.

    Even an atheist knows there's money to be made off Christians.

    Well, he actually became a minister and gave his life over to Jesus. Who knows? Maybe you will too.:cool:

    Sorry, I spelled your name wrong. Lewis remained a lay person, he was never ordained. Mere Christianity is a wonderful book of apologetics, and has converted many people, including the late Chuck Colson.

    Lay people may not have the title of minister, but he filled in the job rather well.

    I'd say so, better than most ministers.
