While this is very boring to sit and read through, due to its layout, the content is interesting. It's set up as a timeline of Lewis' life. I especially like this quote: "I never had the experience of looking for God. It was the other way around; He was the hunter (or so it seemed to me) and I was the deer. He stalked me like a redskin, took unerring aim, and fired. And I am very thankful that that is how the first (conscious) meeting occurred. It forearms one against subsequent fears that the whole thing was only wish fulfilment. Something one didn't wish for can hardly be that." I also got a kick out of the the note (May 2, 1941) that The Screwtape Letters were originally published in a religous serial publication, and one reader canceled his subscription because, "much of the advice given in these letters seemed to him not only erroneous but positively diabolical."
