"Lewis has been a publishing phenomenon, said Mickey Maudlin, senior vice president of HarperOne, who became a Christian by reading Lewis’ 'Surprised by Joy' at 21 years old. Lewis is claimed as 'one of us' by Mormons, Catholics and mainline Protestants, as well as evangelicals, Maudlin said.
"'Name another author whose books are being sold more now than they were when they were alive,' he said. 'His vision for the Christian life is seemingly simple while being very complex. He took the stance of explainer without being an expert.'"
