Summary

Selected from sermons delivered by C. S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. Addressing some of the most difficult issues we face in our day-to-day lives, C.S. Lewis's ardent and timeless words provide an unparalleled path to greater spiritual understanding.Considered by many to be Lewis's finest sermon of all, and his most moving address, The Weight of Glory extols a compassionate vision of Christianity and includes lucid and compelling discussions on faith. Also included in this volume are Transposition, On Forgiveness, Why I Am Not a Pacifist and Learning in War-Time.

Critic reviews

"I read Lewis for comfort and pleasure many years ago, and a glance into the books revives my old admiration." (John Updike)
"If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels." (The New Yorker)
"C. S. Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half-convinced, for the good man who would like to be a Christian but finds his intellect getting in the way." (New York Times Book Review)
"Lewis, perhaps more than any other twentieth-century writer, forced those who listened to him and read his works to come to terms with their own philosophical presuppositions." (Los Angeles Times)
