“Captivating reading that builds the faith while it fills the mind with greatness.”—Sherwood Wirt, former editor, DECISION MagazineOne of this century’s greatest writers of fact, fiction, and fantasy explores, in utterly beautiful terms, questions of faith in the modern world: • On the experience of miracles• On silence and religious belief• On the assumed conflict between work and prayer• On the error of trying to lead “a good life” without Christ• On the necessity of dogma to religion• On the dangers of national repentance• On the commercialization of Christmas . . . and more“The searching mind and the poetic spirit of C.S. Lewis are readily evident in this collection of essays edited by his one-time secretary, Walter Hopper. Here the reader finds the tough-mind polemicist relishing the debate; here too the kindly teacher explaining a complex abstraction by means of clarifying analogies; here the public speaker addressing his varied audience with all the humility and grace of a man who knows how much more remains to be unknown.”—The New York Times Book Review
C. S. Lewis was an Irish medievalist, author, and amateur theologian equally famous for his Chronicles of Narnia and his Christian apologetics.
