Researchers agree that few experiences before age 6 become lifelong memories. What do our earliest memories tell us about ourselves or about our childhood? And do most people remember similar types of experiences from early childhood? Early memories vary widely in content:
Lewis' conversion from atheism to Christianity. He identifies a quality which he calls "Joy," which occurs in what he describes as "a stab of joy.
Lewis explains that he got three stabs of joy in his youth: Lewis contends that these stabs of Joy are glimpses of the divine, and that they guided him inevitably to the Christian belief that characterized his later life. What's truly amazing about this book, to me, is how closely it follows my own life.
If I could identify three stabs of Joy that I've experienced, I'd say, first of all, from Lewis' own Narnia books, particularly the episode when Lucy is reading from the magical book in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader ; second, oddly enough, from the James Bond movies--I know that sounds weird, but something about the atmosphere of Goldfinger, especially encapsulated in the music, really caught me; and thirdly, from Star Wars--the film, not any of the subsequent movies.
Like Lewis, I subsequently fancied myself an atheist, and for much the same reasons.
Lewis explains that he received a mature stab of Joy from the idea of Northernness that he got from the Norse mythology in Wagner; I, on the other hand, got that stab of Joy from T.
White's book The Once and Future King. Lewis followed up on this by investigating Norse mythology more closely, and subsequently stopped receiving stabs of Joy from it when it became an academic investigation isntead of something he did for pure pleasure.
Likewise with me and the Arthurian legend. Like Lewis, I struggled against becoming a Christian but, like Lewis, books in his case Chesterton and MacDonald, in mine the medieval Arthurian romances and friends in Lewis' case, a plethora of friends including Owen Barfield, J. Tolkien and other college friends, in my case, my wife prevailed.
So, what really made me enjoy this book was recognizing the truth of what Lewis was saying in it. And I recognized this truth, because his story pretty closely resembled my own.I have a master’s degree in early childhood education, a doctorate in educational psychology, and have spent the last 17 years teaching about and studying early childhood education.
