Review

"Lewis combines a novelist's insights into motives with a profound religious understanding."--" The New York Times Book Review"

From the Back Cover

Addressing some of the most difficult issues we face in our day-to-day lives, C. S. Lewis's ardent and timeless words provide an unparalleled path to greater spiritual understanding. Considered by many to be his most moving address, "The Weight of Glory" extols a compassionate vision of Christianity and includes lucid and compelling discussions on forgiveness and faith.

By A Customer on 2 Jan. 1999
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Gottwald's magnum opus, while being flawed in several ways, is nevertheless an essential starting point for anyone investigating the sociology of ancient Israel. Although concentrating on a quite narrow period of history, Gottwald lays out a rigorous methodology which students of any aspect of the sociology of ancient Israel at any time would do well to take note of. A major caveat is Gottwald's use of Marxist theory via Marvin Harris. There are fundamental flaws in his drawing of a distinction between ideas, like religion, and egalitariansim as a practice. Gottwald states that he is not producing any new information in his study, merely laying out the extant material in a new way. In this sense he is doing much the same as Weber did in his Ancient Judaism sixty years earlier. There is much to be learned from comparing and contrasting the two books.

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."

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.

Format: Paperback
"The Weight of Glory", "Transposition", and other essays in this volume have been warmly received in the years since they were first preached. "The Inner Ring," by contrast, is less often cited. This is a pity, since "of all passions the passion for the Inner Ring is most skillful in making a man who is not yet a very bad man do very bad things."
It is a frightening picture of ambition twisted and run amok, destroying the human person whom it infests. "Aristotle placed [friendship] among the virtues. It causes perhaps half of all the happiness in the world, and no Inner Ringer can ever have it."
