Great voice for a great book.

I love how relatable Lewis is in everyday life. The voice goes well with the feel of Lewis as well.

C.S. Lewis at his finest, deepest, most profound-

I'm a devotee of Lewis and his extremely simple approach to the unknown. He lets the facts lead to the logical conclusions. He asks in Chapter 8, what is the reaction when a writer puts himself in a play? Yet when we read his books - like this one, and letters he has written "to Malcom", e. g.- I can see Professor Kirk so very plainly. "It's just logic! What do they teach the children in these schools, anyway?"

And this is C.S. Lewis's approach to the search for God. It is a series of essays, but reads a bit like a journal. He's just so brilliant, and at times I felt like I was trying to capture a moonbeam or the glimpse of a red-winged blackbird's flash in the corner of my eye. Ephemeral, often just out of reach, yet so clearly reality.

I love how Lewis wonders and states his views

Fascinating knowledge and opinions from Lewis who was very well read and educated man. Some of what he speaks of are above my understanding but he answered many of my own questions using Scripture and quotes of well known authors, and philosophers. He talks about science and theories, including all types of “religions” and belief systems. I plan on getting a copy of this book (if I can find one)

Intelligent and Respectful

An intelligent collection of articles outlining how God can coexist with science. Lewis maintains the two need not be mutually exclusive, building his argument in a respectful discourse that is especially refreshing given the state of today’s meme-based shout downs on social media.

Clarity

I have been an avid reader of CS Lewis since 1999. I began where most people do with the Chronicles of Narnia. Mere Christianity and the Great Divorce opened my mind and heart in ways I still can barely explain. For explanation of Lewis’s deeper picture and understanding of God; and that which was nearly foundational to his belief The Search for God gives wonderful insight and a clarity I truly appreciate.

Good but nothing new

All the essays here appear in other works as do all the ideas presented in this book.

Loved it.

This short book is a nice collection of essays written by Lewis in other publications. As always, Lewis’ writing and insights are impressive. And, I particularly loved this grouping of his thoughts. Very helpful.

I need to reread God In The Dock!

There are many interesting essays here, however I’m not overly convinced that all of them are a direct link to The Search for God theme. However I am encouraged to again reread God In The Dock.

I do enjoy C.S. Lewis, so I did enjoy these essays.

A Classic

this is a most interesting book by C S Lewis. Quite different from Narnia and Scewtape Letters.
