Indu Shanmugam is a 20-something, college student from Oregon, USA. She is majoring in English literature and language. She also studied Theology for a short period. She wants to be a teacher. As a literature enthusiast, she enjoys literature of all types and from writers of various backgrounds from the classics, French realists, Christian writings like C.S Lewis and South Asian literature. As for her own writings, "I am still trying to find and develop my own voice." She sees the art of the written word as a way to speak about Christ and explore truth. Before she met Jesus Christ, she has been searching for the meaning of life through experimentation of other religions, philosophies and ideas. At the age of 17, she accepted Christ after a powerful encounter with God through a miracle. God's presence and deep truths in the Bible fuel her creativity. She is involved in church activities and has a love for the church and would like to see every believer grow, become closer to God and live fruitfully. She loves traveling, sipping bubble teas, theatre, music, films and hanging out with friends and has a weakness for cheesecake.
Now that I got your attention, I am talking about C.S. Lewis. I have read a biography about him and just got his book "Mere Christianity." I wanted to read that book for a long time. I admire his intellect and writing style. I have already read Chronicles of Narnia. His life is interesting. Intelligence and Christian is a good combination.
Other's on my reading list are Elisabeth Elliot's "Passion and Purity" "Let me be a women" and "100 Christian Women who changed the 20th century" by Helen Kooimar Hosier.
