One Volume Collection of C.S. Lewis' Works Mar 18, 2007
This is an excellent one volume collection of some the most important of C.S. Lewis' writings. Seven complete works including Mere Christianity, the Screwtape Letters and the hard to find Abolition of Man are contained in this book. The size of this format makes it easy to carry around and the print is still very readable. This is the perfect edition to start reading C.S. Lewis.
a "must have" for thinking people and slackers alike Mar 17, 2007
i read mere christianity and screwtape years ago and was delighted to see them in one volume with other 'signature classics' by ol' clive staples lewis. if you want to go to narnia on the pop culture train, pass on this. if you want contemporary thought by a man long dead, but his words still live and indict the modern mind to stretch beyond complacency, get this volume NOW!
Beautiful Collector Edition Mar 14, 2007
The book was more than I expected. Beautiful cover, nice ribbon marker. C.S. Lewis has some wonderful works. It's nice to have a fair share of them in one large book.
a very nice compilation of Lewis' most important books. Mar 8, 2007
I like this compilation very much, since it contains a lot of the classics of C.S. Lewis that I wanted to have on my shelf. The book is of course a great bargain, since you'd pay a lot more if you bought each one seperately. Personally, I like C.S. Lewis' essays a lot, because they are written for those "intellectuals" that just can't really grasp the idea of God that doesn't fit into their (our) scientific world. It is a great lecture for those who doubt. BUT: one should read it with an open mind since not all of Lewis' arguments are always coherent up to the end (let's face it though, faith can never be explained 100% with human logic). Still he gives a lot of impulses for ways to think about faith and, I think, in the variety of essays everyone can find something convincing. On a personal note, I like C.S. Lewis because he never forgets to point out that christianity is not a religion where everyone can just pick out one opinion or interpretation that "suits him", but contains duties and prohibitions before God and all humans, at the same time as peace, community and love. I think, that is a point often forgotten nowadays. C.S. Lewis is a writer whose books I dare to recommend and give to the most doubting and mind-guided people, always with the recommendation that they keep their mind open while reading it; despite some incoherencies (and C.S.Lewis never claims his opinions to be the universal truth for everybody) he makes people think anew or at least rethink their own fragile arguments against the existence of God. If they don't finish up believing, then at least admitting the possiblity. Read it!
A Great Buy Mar 8, 2007
I only began enjoying C. S. Lewis about a year ago. I tried to read Screwtape Letters several years ago but it was not my bag. But virtually ever other writing he has done is great. This book, which contains several of his writings, is a really nice composite. It is about 2 inches thick, paperback, and the print is large enough for easy reading.
