I love CS Lewis but...

I love CS Lewis but I was surprised at the narrow view of the church. I have to assume this comes from his upbringing. some criticism is correct but some views are more narrow than the bible.

The title is the target audience

Difficult to understand reader’s enunciation in some spots. Other than that, performance was engaging and clear. Content (found and published after the author’s death) is engaging, thoughtful, and relevant even today—but probably wouldn’t be for those outside the intended audience.

Some interesting thoughts in a short book

This very short book is an interesting collection of thoughts on certain topics that apply more to the Anglican or Episcopal churches. however there is value for others as well. I found one of his arguments particularly compelling, and have changed my perspective as a result.

Excellent balancing and relevant

Chapter 1 on catholic/Protestant basic differences and why
Chapter 2 on women in church leadership
Chapter 3 on music in the church
All three are completely unexpected approaches, yet balanced and biblical.
Helpful for our day

Quick, enjoyable, insightful read

I don’t usually know what exactly will be discussed in a C.S. Lewis book; usually the titles do not give a good guess on the topic. I would say the same here, but it doesn’t take away from the book; in fact, it further adds to the point. From what was read (heard), it seems the majority was not exactly on the Church per say, but rather the role of women in the Church, whether they are allowed to be priests or not, etc. In general, I think Lewis indicated his point very well and concisely. Worth the read to hear more about the topic of women, the role of priesthood, etc. in the Church.
