Sintesi dell'editore

Selected from sermons delivered by C. S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. "The Weight of Glory", considered by many to be Lewis’s finest sermon of all, is an incomparable explication of virtue, goodness, desire, and glory.

Also included are: “Transposition”, “On Forgiveness”, “Why I Am Not a Pacifist”, and “Learning in War-Time”, in which Lewis presents his compassionate vision of Christianity in language that is both lucid and compelling.

Clive Staples (C. S.) Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the 20th century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. His major contributions in literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. He wrote more than 30 books, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.

Thought provoking and deeply encouraging

Wonderful selection of Lewis' writings, full of encouragement and deep thought. The title essay is particularly valuable and made me long to know Jesus better.

Love this book

This is a book I will listen to over and over and over again. I've never read an author who could say so much with so few words.

CS Lewis...always worth a read (or listen)

CS Lewis...always worth a read (or listen) in my opinion. I'm constantly being challenged and inspired by Lewis' profound statements and analyses of the human heart.

Delightful

This is a reading of several of CS Lewis' lectures (sermons) on Christianity. Lewis wrote on a highly intellectual level in a U.K. vernacular, and the book was read by a man with an English accent, giving the it a delightful, almost biblical (KJV) tone. The ideas come quickly, one after another. I've ordered a printed copy of this book and look forward to savoring it idea by idea.

Lewis by one who knew him best.

This is a collection of messages by a master story teller. Even when Britian was in the throughts of war Lewis puts things into perspective. There is some commentatry between Lewis's messages puting into context the man and the time he was speaking, though it all is as current today, as when he spoke the words for the first time. The only thing that would make me like it more,was if there were surviving original recordings.
