Good Daily Reading Jan 9, 2007
This will not do for a daily devotional. With that being said, the daily portions are small enough that even an intellectual "non-Christian" as well as any Christian can read and enjoy. I include the intellectual non-Christian because the ideas in the book are weighty. It applies to the Christian because they are weighty ideas that are in support of the Christian world-view. It is a quick daystarter that will also give you insight into the works of C.S. Lewis and may inspire the reader to actually read his edifying literature. I recommend this to add to your daily read, not to replace it.
A Year with C.S. Lewis Nov 4, 2006
I have been readung daily meditations/modivational readings for as long as I can remember. I find this this is probably the most useful in that it covers all aspects of one's life. I find myself unconsciously nodding my head as I read. I would highly recommend this book to all of my friends. It is amazing how much better your day is when you get your brain primed early in the day.
Daily C. S. Lewis fix for familiar readers Oct 16, 2006
If you are familiar with the works of C. S. Lewis, then this book is for you. It contains snippets of trivia about his life in addition to a passage a day from his numerous works. However, I would recommend this book to those who've already read and reflected on at least one of his other books in its entirety. You can then appreciate how Lewis develops his complex thoughts and arguments through many chapters, not just one paragraph. This book of daily readings can then be used as a starting point to refresh you on a bit of insight that will lead you to greater reflection of your faith.
If you haven't read his books, at best you will be piqued by these appetizers to look forward to the entrees of his books. At worst this book of daily readings will be just another collection of daily thoughts.
I love the way C. S. Lewis articulates his thoughts, and it gives me great pleasure when I chew on what he says and gain that insight. I wish other Christian writers today would take the same time to meditate and share their wisdom, instead of churn out book after book that defines today's pop-Christian culture.
Pure Solid Lewis, Every Day of the Year May 8, 2006
C.S. Lewis is valued by many as one of the clearest and most lucid voices of reason in 20th Century Christianity.
Clive Staples Lewis, (Jack to his friends) wrestled as an younger adult with his belief in God, having embraced agnosticism as the only truly valid position to be taken by an intellectually honest person. A highly intelligent man, he could not simply accept on blind faith, the tenets of Christianity. However, in large part due to the influence of fellow literary professor J.R.R. Tolkien, Lewis came to wrestle with Christianity and came to the conclusion that it was indeed rationale and defensible and thus was born a literary and apologetics career that spanned radio programs, children's books, science fiction and several well loved and highly influential apologetic tomes.
This daily reader puts together a wonderful collection of pithy passages and thoughts that will serve as part of a daily devotional regimen (not all of it though ... I suspect Lewis himself would not want reading his works to replace reading Scripture.) Each selection stands well on its own and captures the genius of Lewis in taking an often difficult concept and reducing it to an acecdotal story that bring clarity and understanding.
An excellent collection and a worthy daily regimen.
