I love quotes like women love chocolate. How could I not love this book? C. S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors (though I must admit, when I read him, I must have a dictionary handy) because there is a magic about his way of thinking. Lewis takes a topic and explores it to its uttermost ending. When we read him, we journey with him from beginning to end.I believe he must be a distant relative of St. Paul because Lewis does tend to be a wordy. But in those words is wit and clarity.

this book got me through the 8th grade.
Excellent book! These are C.S. Lewis quotes on all subjects arranged topically. Not just religious topics but things like "Writing," "J.R.R. Tolkien," and "Humor."

Sometimes my wife and I have a "Theologians Duel." One of us will grab this book and the other will grab the Neal A. Maxwell Quote Book, and we'll "do battle" by picking topics and reading what each theologian had to say on the matter.

Sheri L. Dew references quotes from this book several times throughout, "God Wants a Powerful People". I'd like to own a copy of this book; it would be a great resource. I know it includes an in-depth index that makes it easy for the reader to find quotes based on subject, key-words, etc.

Recommends it for: anyone familiar with Lewis, pastors

Excellent reference. It can also be used as a devotional-- go topically and add whatever scripture he refers to. It's very interesting to read his fiction and non-fiction on the same topic back to back.

Lots of varied thoughts on life, religion, love and values, arranged in alphabetical order from many of Lewis' works and letters.
This is a great reference book and straight-through read of some of the great thoughts of C.S. Lewis. Highlighter needed.
Much better than the Internet for finding quotes, etc. Invaluable purchase. Some photos included.

I feel inspired by just reading his quotes -- so many good ones in this book.
Not exactly a book to read like a novel, but a very good reference book.
David Roberts
Great anthology, topically indexed.
