Surprised by Laughter, The Comic World of C.S. Lewis by Terry Lindvall
Surprised by Laughter is a journey through the life and letters of C.S. Lewis. I knew the name because of the Narnia books, but I never gave much thought to the writer. This book is somewhat of a memoir of the illustrious writer as the reader is taken into his life, his thoughts and his beliefs.
He loved reading and writing and believed a sense of humor was a sensitivity of character. He believed that laughter and joy could be found in the most serious moments and it's explained why he thought that, along with keen examples. A devout Christian, he found love and laughter can be a healing balm and that laughter is best when it arises out of love. A very inspiring and thought-provoking read!
