Loved this. Witnessing through his letters - growing in maturity from an arrogant, brilliant young man to a wise old man. Enjoyed his love of nature - changes of season, the sky, animals. His exhaustion at times, the drudgery of everyday life, the times of flu and sickness. Made him more real, not just this iconic Christian figure.

I went into this book expecting a fine book of letters, interesting correspondence... what I got was so much more. I'm not even sure what I can say about this collection to properly convey how much I liked it, esteem it. To be on the receiving end of such fine letters! And Lewis has become one of my new passions, at least his letters and a diary. I don't even have any quibble about his coming to religion after years of rather steadfast atheism (although I'll admit his "coming to Jesus" isn't wea ...more

I started this book years ago and while very good and progressively so, I set it down and only read it in bits and pieces. Early this morning I read the last 10 pages, concluding the longest "read"(in reference to time) I've done. So my thoughts are not necessarily fresh.
The letters are of course primarily from CSL to Arthur Greeves so it is one sided. Near the end are several letters from Arthur to CSL and a few from Warren Lewis to Arthur.
The strongest thing I gained is the importance of bei

This collection of letters from Lewis to his boyhood friend, Arthur, is one-sided and you must imply what the letters from Arthur said. The early years were fairly boring, improving as the men matured. They are of interest to me due to Lewis conversion to Christianity and also due to mention of his friendship with Tolkien. Also interest in his Irish heritage and love of nature, as well as his interest in Norse literature. It is a difficult way to learn about someone if you have never read their ...more

A remarkable collection of letters: part biography, part literary critiques, part theological musings. A depth of emotion throughout. Superb read.
