În distincta sa înfățișare scriitoricească, C.S. Lewis oferă cu prilejul acestei noi colecții de eseuri o apărare a dreptei credințe creștine, confruntată cu amenințările evului contemporan. Textele cuprinse aici sondează zone profunde și sensibile ale sufletului religios, abordând probleme specifice discursului de tip teologic, precum noima apartenenței la Trupul lui Hris...more

This is a very interesting and enjoyable set of essays and speeches compiled after C.S. Lewis' death. They deal with important issues in one's personal spiritual life (prayer, forgiveness) as well as wider theological issues (the nature of the church, higher criticism, etc.). The style is very enjoyable and rarely so academic or professional that it goes over one's head.

One strikingly relevant essay is the one on historicism. It refutes the idea that man can read into historical events any obje...more
Rather above my head in parts, I'm afraid, but overall quite good.

We've been chipping through this little collection of essays in a book breakfast group, so it has been on my reading pile for a couple of months. It is a bit uneven, both in terms of quality and subject matter, but there are a few really fine pieces in the mix. Lewis can feel dated, a bit smug at times, but he always gives you something to chew on!
Ca si in cazul lui "Mere Christianity", stilul lui C.S. Lewis de explica felul in care se pune problema si de a prezenta apoi argumentele este inconfundabil.
David Boyce
Ok, not quite as good as God in the Dock mainly because of the aweful essay about historicism in the middle, but some bits are well worth reading.
This is probably the best of Lewis' works that I've read so far. Each essay has the value of an entire book.
Douglas Wilson
Really good. Also read in October of 1983. Also read in March of 1980.
Frank Della Torre
Learning in Wartime is my favorite essay.
My favorite collection of his essays!

“...here also forgiving does not mean excusing. Many people seem to think it does. They think that if you ask them to forgive someone who has cheated or bullied them you are trying to make out that there was really no cheating or bullying. But if that were so, there would be nothing to forgive. (This doesn't mean that you must necessarily believe his next promise. It does mean that you must make every effort to kill every taste of resentment in your own heart - every wish to humiliate or hurt him or to pay him out.)” 9 likes
