C.S.Lewis was born on the 29th of November, 1898, in Belfast, Ireland. Growing up he attended the Church of Ireland.
As a teenager though, he was bored by things to do with the church and God, and when he was 15 he became an atheist. He later said he was paradoxically "angry with God for not existing".
But, when he was studying at Oxford University, he joined a group of writers called the Inklings. Some members of the Inklings - such as J.R.R Tolkien (the writer of the Lord of the Rings) - convinced him that God was real.
One day, on his way to the zoo with his brother, Lewis decided to become a Christian. He was baptised in the Church of England and became a very religious man.
As a writer, Lewis used his writing to explore, understand and display his faith. For example, in his most famous novel, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the death of Aslan is a symbol of the crucifixion of Jesus...
And Aslan's rebirth, a symbol of the resurrection of Christ!
