Ann SpanglerI got my first job in Christian publishing straight out of graduate school. I was thrilled because books have always been such a big part of my life. And it was a book—actually a series of books—that first attracted me to God.
A good friend suggested I read the Narnia Chronicles by C.S. Lewis, warning me that the story had a strong Christian theme. (Since she and I were both skeptics, she wanted to give me a heads up lest I unwittingly morphed into a Jesus freak.) I was an undergraduate at the time who was far more interested in having a good time than in going to class. But I still loved to read.
