About the Author

Lyle W. Dorsett is a Professor at the Beeson School of Divinity at Samford University. He is a former faculty member of Wheaton College, and a bestselling author. His books include "A Passion for Souls: The Life of D. L. Moody" and "The Essential C. S. Lewis." Lyle and his wife, Mary, founded Christ for Children International, a mission to economically impoverished children in Mexico.


Originally published in 1988, I found this story of the life of this extraordinary woman to be an ideal compliment to George Sayer's biography of C.S.Lewis originally entitled "Jack: C.S.Lewis and His Times" (1988) reprinted by Hodder in 2005 as "Jack: A Life of C.S.Lewis."

"Joy Davidman was born into a Jewish family in New York City, 1915. Both sets of grandparents were immigrants who practiced their religion, Joy's father did not, in fact he brought up his children harshly, insisted that they follow his atheism, and put great pressure on his children to achieve. As Joy was very bright, beyond her years, with an exceptionally high IQ, she gained entry to University at an early age and was writing poetry and short stories from the start."These early chapters did not describe a particularly likeable young woman, by the time she married at twenty-seven, she and her husband were committed members of the Communist Party but both were aware there was something missing in their lives."The story continues, telling how both Joy and Bill became Christians, Bill to drop away, becoming an alcoholic, Joy to grow nearer to Christ, drawing great comfort from the writings of C.S.Lewis."This account of her life and subsequent marriage to C.S.Lewis is a worthwhile read, highly recommended."
