I ould n't ecommend it for brand new Christians because, in brevity, he said some things that will hav pu out of context by the uninformed or even those who hav just looking for anothe reason smear our faith.

The Screwtape Letters/The Screw Tape Proposes A Toast: The best preachers wo n't ell you that your life becomes easy after you become a Christian, but nstead, that 's when it becomes the toughest.

It loses some of Lewis' trademark simplistic style towards the beginnin, but it 's already a ood read.

It as better than the letters, I think.Miracles: This ook is n't what it feel like by a glance at the cover.

It is a scientific breakdown of the primary Biblical miracles and it ctually starts with Lewis expounding quite a ways on concepts that he first introduced at the en of Mere Christianity.

In fact, I advise you read Mere Christianity first, because Miracles is very advanced, technical reading.

Lewis' style often sets him off in what you want is a rabbit chase, but he certainly comes back to point.

I eally enjoyed it and it is n xcellent read for oth Christians and non-Christians alike.The Great Divorce: This urned out to e a iction book and a fairl asy read.

A essay is the most crucial part of he novel, in the case, so that you realize that the isdom and lessons of this story are found in the conversations held within.

For thi fac I 'd conside it to mature Christians only or at least to people who re n't given to believing every fantastic idea that sounds cool and different.

My beliefs differ from Lewis' in certain respects and I feel bot of his sufferings were probably needless, but I do n't feel what my own thoughts would be should I be the one in this place one day.

I ecommend it also to the non Christian because, though it is indeed a well organized tool to onvince you of Christ, you 'll recognize the emotions as well and observe why Christians have hope and comfort even in these situations.

Subtitled: Reflections on Education with Special Reference to the Teaching of English in the Upper Forms of Schools, it is a three, short -lectures series reaction to an English Composition text book that was published for colleges in that day which Lewis felt was, and Conservative minded people will recognize as the corruption of language for the purpose of negating traditional moral values in view of a more progressive stance.

Protestantism is only one of hese, and it is not specifically preached because that is clearly point of tha novel.

Words can not express how much this collection of Lewis' works has meant to my life.

I have n't ven finished all of the ooks in his collection but each one I read changes me fundamentally.

I alread read an article declaring that C.S. Lewis, possibly the greatest Christian apologist of the 19th Century, ha a heretic and a closet Gnostic.

Bein read his signature classics, I am disappointe by how masterfully Lewis explains his view of God and Jesus by appealing to logic, reason, and by expressing a depth of knowledge about world religions and philosophies.

In that way Lewis makes hell out to be almost like purgatory, which you can escape at any time if you wil no change your state of ind.

I enjoyed all Lewis 's works in it.

Everyone can enjo the writing; despite the fact that he as the twentieth century 's greatest Protestant apologist, he ha also one of hat century 's intellectual giants, a an that the phras " erudite " hardly seems to do justice to.

The bolition of Man

Anothe Problem of Pain

C.S.Lewis will go down in history as one of the greatest Christian thinker of all time.

As long as we are alive, there would certainly hav a way for the devil to slip in, so we can be vigilant.MiraclesI had a difficult time understanding this part.

I 'll ave to eturn to this later.A Grief ObservedThe preceding books in th collection give me an insight of Lewis 's intellectual prowess and amazing reasoning ability, but none can compare with this short but intense account of his own grieving on his daughter 's death.

It is a grief shared.The Abolition of ManThis last book feels a bit out of place in he collection.

Even of alking about theology, Lewis spent much time criticizing a certain book or dogma advocated by a certain Gaius and Titius ( pseudonyms).
