Peace Apart: Lasting Impressions of C.S. Lewis is a wonderful introduction to or reacquaintance with this outstanding literary and spiritual figure. Bishop Fintan Monahan gently guides us through the life and work of C.S. Lewis, from his childhood in Northern Ireland and his experiences of loss and war at a young age to his years as an academic in Oxford, his time spent with the Inklings and his career as a world-renowned author, touching on all the magic, imagination, loves, losses and great friendships along the way.

“God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing”. – C.S Lewis

In a unique and accessible way, the author explores Lewis’ faith journey and its twists and turns, through which he was transformed from a young man of lost faith to a man of deep faith and an apologist. He also explains why Lewis’ writings, both fiction and spiritual, continue to resonate and inspire today.
