Default How Did He Die?

I don't think I ever found out. I wish he was alive though. I'd love to sit on the floor and listen to him read one of his books.

Lewis technically died of pneumonia, but it was more an overall breakdown of his health. He'd been rather sickly all his life, and was a smoker (most men were at that time), and had had heart troubles. He'd also been severely weakened by caring for his wife Joy.

Trivia: his death would have garnered more attention but for the fact that it occurred on Nov 22, 1963 - the day John Kennedy was shot.

His health started going downhill after Joy died.

I always thought the date of his death seemed familiar, like something else important happened that day....

In a sense I think it was better that another event happened on this day. I think he would've disliked it if people began elevating him to a "hero" status or giving him honors in anyway. He spoke of the need to be humble and of the dangers of the "greatest sin" which was pride. I think he is glad that his death was kept "low profile" so to speak.

Keep in mind that all those points about self-exultation and the danger of pride are only an issue for those of us still here on earth. Lewis was hardly in danger of being distracted by earthly glory after his death - his attention was fixed on things greater than any offered here. But for all that, I think that things played out as God intended. Perhaps if his death had been more noted, his works would have received a flare-up of interest as a "media event", and then died down. As it was, his effect on the world has been slow but growing - a "stealth" attack on the idolatry of the West.
