Good chapter on Heaven,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Problem of Pain (Paperback)
C.S.Lewis's style is excellent, and he is quite honest in sharing his own difficulties in accepting the ideas he espouses. The best chapter is the last one on Heaven, where he tries to awaken the hope of Heaven behind normal human activities. His idea of pain as being a sort of schoomaster is an old one but has problems, because a lot of pain is pointless. Any reader who has problems with this should read his last book 'A Grief Observed', where he personally experiences very deep pain grieving for his wife, and stops preaching to the reader and starts shouting at God.
