Product Description

Review

‘I read C.S. Lewis for comfort and pleasure many years ago, and a glance into the books revives my old admiration.’
John Updike

‘The only imperative that nature utters is, “Look. Listen. Attend.”’
C.S. Lewis in The Four Loves

Product Description

The classic A Year with C.S. Lewis is an intimate day-to-day companion by C.S. Lewis, the most important Christian writer of the 20th century. The daily meditations have been culled from Lewis’ celebrated signature classics: Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, Miracles, and A Grief Observed, as well as from the distinguished works The Weight of Glory and The Abolition of Man. Ruminating on such themes as the nature of love, the existence of miracles, overcoming a devastating loss, and discovering a profound Christian faith, A Year with C.S. Lewis offers unflinchingly honest insight for each day of the year.

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.

This book provides a new reading to correspond to each day. It takes simple extracts from C S Lewis' major works. For new and old readers of Lewis' works it provides an interesting synopsis of this inspired and inspiring man, and may well encourage further reading. I found I could relate to many of his view points, many of which were moving and profound, especially those relating to his wife Joy. It also puts key dates of his life at the bottom of the page for each day.
I would highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you are VERY short of time. 2 May 2014

Cannot be used as a replacement for reading through the unedited books, which surely constitute the most readable Christian literature in print today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 21 April 2014
By Jennyd
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For anyone who likes CS Lewis this is a great little book for daily reading. It does help though if you have a background knowledge of the other works of CS Lewis otherwise some of the references he makes to his other books might confuse the uninformed reader! It is a great way of reading some of the great writings of this very talented and knowledgeable man in 'bite sized' pieces. It's a good way of doing some thought provoking reading when reading is often seen as a bit of a 'luxury' time wise!
