Summary

Have you ever wondered…whether God exists? whether life has meaning? Whether pain and suffering have a purpose? This audiobook is my invitation to sit down with C. S. Lewis and me to think about some of the persistent questions and dilemmas every person faces in life. We’ll explore Lewis’s thoughts on everything from friendships to heaven, from the reasons for faith to the power of stories. Lewis is one of a small group of people who both learned from life’s challenges and were able to pass on his wisdom elegantly and effectively. So why not see Lewis as a mentor and coach? - Dr. Alister McGrath

The perfect introduction to C.S. Lewis

I often read/listen to C.S. Lewis writings, and Alister McGrath captures his generel opinion on a great number of subjects, and convey these ideas on an easily accessible level. If you like C.S. Lewis or would like to start reading him, this is a good way into a otherwise large amount of books and essays.

A great overview

To those who have never read C.S. Lewis this will be a wonderful introduction. And to those very familiar with the beloved author it will feel like bumping into an old friend after much time apart. While it is not an in depth treatment of his work it is still well worth the purchase.

Inspiring; compelling style; tiresome reader

I appreciated McGrath's writing in the style of C.S. Lewis. I think Lewis himself would have been glad to read a summary of his thoughts and teachings, arranged by topic in an approachable format. I recommend this for the uninitiated and those familiar with Lewis's work. After I listened to this, I re-read two of Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia (The Magician's Nephew and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) and I am embarking on a third. Through McGrath, I was reminded of Lewis's brilliant way of engaging the imagination to get to deeper truth.

About the Reader
I listened to Ralph Lister read this. On the positive side, he has a beautiful voice with a British accent. On the negative side, his reading inflection became tiresome as he spoke almost every sentence with the same lilting, rhythm. It was like a BBC newscast over and over. Certainly not among the worst readers, but somewhat distracting.

Quite an entertaining read

I'm surprise Alastair has never written a children's fantasy book of his own and but arguments for the existence of a God like Andrew Klavan didn't homelanders C.L Lewis. in the lion the witch and the wardrobe
