C. S. Lewis and His Circle

Peter Bide

Oxford University Press

In 1957, C. S. Lewis and Joy Davidman, who was suffering from cancer, entered Christian marriage at her hospital bed. Because Davidman was divorced, this was not a straightforward matter at the time. This chapter, which was written by the priest who married Lewis and Davidman, tells the story of the marriage: the author's own friendship with Lewis, Lewis’s request, the occasion itself, and its aftermath.

Keywords:   C. S. Lewis, Joy Davidman, divorce
