Item description for Words to Live by: A Guide for the Merely Christian by C. S. Lewis...
Overview This text showcases the amazing lucidity and precision of C.S. Lewis's thoughts and writings, with entries on prayer, faith, love, virtue, greed, lust, church, the Trinity, creeds, doctrine, hell, heaven, miracles, suffering, joy, and more.
C. S. Lewis is a beloved writer and thinker and arguably the most important Christian intellectual of the twentieth century. His groundbreaking children's series The Chronicles of Narnia, lucid nonfiction titles such as Mere Christianity and The Problem of Pain, and thought-provoking fiction, including The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce, have become trusted companions for millions of readers. Here Lewis breathes new life into words and concepts that have dulled through time and familiarity, and his writings inevitably provoke deep thought and surprising revelations.
Words to Live By contains an unprecedented selection of Lewis's writings, drawing from his most popular works, but also from his volumes of letters and his lesser-known essays and poems. His works are presented in accessible selections covering subjects from A to Z, including beauty, character, confession, doubt, family, holiness, and religion. Both a wonderful introduction to Lewis's thinking and a wise and insightful guide to key topics in the Christian life, these are truly words to live by.

A Great Book for Guided Daily Inspiration May 8, 2009
This book is absolutely incredible. C.S. Lewis' depth and wit come together to make theology applicable to everyday life. I use this book as a morning devotional, but it could be used in a variety of other ways. The quotes are very diverse, taken from different sources including Mere Christianity, The Chronicles of Narnia series, the Screwtape Letters, Letters to Malcom, The Great Divorce, The Problem with Pain, and others. I have loved reading this book of Lewis' quotes. I know you will too!
Beautiful Book! Oct 3, 2008
A typically insightful and meaningful book by the immortal C.S. Lewis. Anything that Lewis writes is historically profound and spiritually moving to the nth degree. His 'Words to Live By' are powerful and beautiful, and are profoundly original. If you love Mr. C.S. Lewis you will love this book.
What!? Feb 22, 2008
So now books that deal with Christian topics have to be cheapened by blatantly ripping off the cover art of sensational teen fiction? what is the point of that? I'm expecting some reaction from Little Brown/ Stephenie Meyer eventually. I guess you have to sell the book and do it by whatever means necessary. Just keep recycling Lewis.
