C.S. Lewis is without doubt one of the greatest - if not the greatest - lay theologian of the 20th century. Immensely personal, his works do not fail to speak to whoever takes time to read and reflect on the great and eternal questions humans have been asking since time immemorial. Reading this book from cover to cover has been a truly spiritual journey - absolutely rewarding but difficult and challenging as well. Nowhere in his works will you find mindless zeal of the self-righteous, instead what shines from every page is a candid and life-long search for truth by a highly intelligent, highly educated and decent man not afraid of asking difficult questions about his faith and reasons. A committed Anglican himself, C.S.Lewis must be a mandatory reading for all Christians regardless of their denomination, as well as everyone who believes or knows that there is more to our existence and this world than meets the eye.

Bought as a wedding gift for some good friends knowing that it will give them a lifetime of reading pleasure. The box-set itself looks incredibly smart and the mix of colours on the separate books looks great on any bookshelf. The covers themselves are just a simple pattern in the same colour as its binding which looks classy and understated - tells nothing of the beauty and insight within!

I have personally read all of these once upon a time - with my favourite changing all the time as the circumstances in my life change and different issues become more or less present. I recently re-read 'The Problem of Pain' an incredible partial theodicy of Lewis - making a case that the existence of suffering is not enough to reject the existence of God. An age old question and by no means a fully answered one - but Lewis presents eloquent answers that will get the layman thinking and can not be easily swept aside by scholars and intellectuals alike.

Fantastic price - works out at around only £2.00 per book, including a cardboard sleeve. Sorted!

Great books by one of the greatest christian authors. C.S. Lewis has so much to say to our generation in the XXI century! And a beatiful edition for a very reasonable price.

A fantastic collection but I just want point out that "(Rough cut edition)" is a literal description of the page cut. I have never heard of this or ever bought a book quite like it. The pages are as you can imagine, roughly cut. But the more I think about it the more endearing the book becomes. It will age well and what a collection of books to own.

So buy it, but don't return it thinking it is a publishing fault.

I had the original compendium in paperback format. The Kindle version is equally easy to read and navigate.
