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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stopped Me in My Tracks 2 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
After reading this essay, I was convicted beyond imagination as to my responsibility as a school teacher. As Lewis says, there are no ordinary people, everyone I come in contact with is a eternal being who is on the path to either heaven or hell. Everything I do in the classroom is pointing my students either towards God or away from Him. And that, as Lewis states, is the Weight of Glory.
Lewis describes glory as not in being noticed by others and seeking their approval, but being noticed by God. To hear that blessed phrase "Well done my good and faithful servant". Not just in seeing God's beauty, but passing into it and being a part of it. The weight of it is my responsibility to bear witness of that glory to others and help to bring them into it. Their salvation is my weight, my burden to bear. Isn't that the reason why believers are on this earth? To honor God, and to serve Him?
Lewis is the master of imagery. He brings his readers to an either/or proposition. Either I am going to take responsibility for my neighbors salvation, or I am not. And once he gets you to that point, there is really no decision to make. Your neighbor's soul is your responsibility.
This essay, more than anything I have read to date, has brought me to the realization as to what my responsibility as a Believer is. I need to read this at least once a month to remind me of how I should be living my life before others. No Christian should go without experiencing this challenge to holiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Weight of Glory" should be required reading. 21 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The most thought provoking part of this book is "The Weight of Glory". It caused me to really think about some of my assumptions of my faith and come out with new insights. Lewis at his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nine speeches of C.S. Lewis 17 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Many of these nine speeches were originally delivered as sermons, including the masterpiece THE WEIGHT OF GLORY. This collection deserves a rating of 10+ and is among the very best of what Lewis ever wrote. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Insightful 21 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
C.S. Lewis has a knowledge and comprehension of christianity that is unparalleled by other contemporary christian authors. His laconic, yet deeply insightful commentaries on the fundamentals of eternal glory can only be described as "inspired."

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Essay I've Ever Read 28 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Can't speak to the rest of the book, but the essay THE WEIGHT OF GLORY is purely edifying, greater than any other 20th century work I know of.
