More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.


Product Description

Review

‘He has a quite unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.’
Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover

In 'The Pilgrim’s Regress' (1933), Lewis’s first prose work, he explains in allegory the elusive experience he calls Joy and its part in his conversation. ' The Problem of Pain' (1940) is his first ‘straight’ work of Christian apologetics. In 'The Screwtape Letters' (1942) an elderly devil writes advising a young devil, Wormwood, who is attempting to procure the soul of a young man.

' The Great Divorce' (1945) tells of an imaginary journey from Hell to the borders of Heaven. In ' Miracles' (1947) Lewis gives a closely-reasoned defence of the supernatural and of miracles of the Bible in particular' Mere Christianity' (1952) – the best known and acclaimed of his theological works – originated in four series of radio broadcasts Lewis gave in 1941-1944. ' Surprised by Joy' (1955) tells the story of Lewis’s boyhood, schooling and early manhood and how he passed ‘from Atheism to Christianity.’ ' Till We have Faces ' (1956) described by Lewis as the ‘favourite of all my books’ retells and interprets the story of Cupid and Psyche.

In his ' Reflections on the Psalms' (1958) Lewis shares thoughts on the Psalms which he knew almost by heart through daily attendance in his college chapel. ' The Four Loves ' (1960) is based on the scripts for four radio talks broadcast in the United States on the Greek words for love – Storge, Philia, Eros and Agape. ' Letters to Malcolm'(1964) was Lewis’s last book in which he corresponds with an imaginary friend on the various aspects of prayer.

'The Dark Tower'(1977), published after Lewis’s death, is a fragment, and was probably intended as a sequel to his novel 'Out of the Silent Planet.'

In his day C S Lewis was highly acclaimed for his literary genius and his powerful defence of Christian faith. His writings remain best-sellers and enormously popular around the world; they have been translated into many languages and continue to delight and captivate readers of all ages.

'Selected Books' is the opportunity to own a library of some of the most loved C S Lewis titles in one volume. These twelve titles demonstrate the breadth and variety of Lewis’s Christian writing – from reasoned argument to engaging allegory.

For anyone who has known and enjoyed the C S Lewis children’s 'Chronicles of Narnia' series and the film ' Shadowlands,'based on his life, this collection is a wonderful celebration of his brilliance.

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS was born in an inner suburb of Belfast in 1898. Known as Jack from childhood, he developed an imaginative gift for story-telling at an early age. Following his older brother, Warren (known as Warnie), to public school in England, he was educated at Cherbourg House and Malvern College. He completed his schooling under the private tuition of his father’s retired headmaster living in Great Bookham, Surrey. From there he went to read Classics at University College, Oxford, before being elected to a Fellowship of English at Magdalen College. From 1955-1963 he was Professor of Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Cambridge.

Lewis’s conversion from atheism to Christian belief in 1931 resulted in a flow of outstanding theological book which championed Christian faith and made him famous in his own lifetime.

Not content as a scholar in an ivory tower, C S Lewis wanted to reach out to ordinary men and women as a ‘translator’ of the truth – ‘one turning Christian doctrine,’ he said, ‘into language that unscholarly people would attend to and could understand.’

Best known for his ' Chronicles of Narnia' written for children – the most popular being 'the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,'his Christian books have become all-time best-sellers. ' Mere Christianity' alone has sold millions of copies world-wide.

He died in 1963 at his home in Oxford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis in one volume 21 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
At long last, here are many of C.S. Lewis's best known theological works in one attractive omnibus edition. Most of the major works are here - among them Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters - along with some lesser known titles such as The Great Divorce and The Pilgrim's Regress. Most of the works fall into the category of 'Christian apologetics' or 'popular theology' but Lewis's fiction is also represented and I was pleased to see the much under-rated fantasy Till We Have Faces. The book will be much appreciated by the many admirers of this major Christian writer and scholar. My only query is: why wasn't it brought out during the centenary year of 1998? - Graham Hedges, Secretary, Librarians' Christian Fellowship
