Lewis in one volume,
By A Customer
This review is from: Selected Books: The Problem of Pain / The Screwtape Letters / Screwtape Proposes a Toast / The Abolition of Man / The Pilgrim's Regress / Miracles / ... / The Four Loves / Prayer: Letters to Malcolm (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

This is not a review of this book. This review is of the hardcover "Selected Books", which is considerably bigger and does include the works that the reviewer mentions. The paperback of the same title is a much smaller selection.

The big hardback is easily preferrable to this smaller paperback but unfortunately the latter has one work not contained in the former: "The Abolition Of Man". I know this work is listed in the title given to the entry for the hardback but it definitely is NOT in the book. (I know because I have it.) However "Abolition" is freely available in its entirety on the internet. Just google it and you'll find it.
