I just borrowed this book from my son while visiting and have read it in only a few days. It is a wonderful book, as applicable today as when it was written. I now plan to read as many C. S. Lewis books as I can lay my hands on.

The Screwtape Letters is really good, an amazing way to see our Christian selves in reverse. Mere Christianity is also quite good, if a bit more intellectual. Surprised by Joy read mostly like an autobiography of his younger days, and not nearly as satisfying as the first two volumes of this book.

You have to really think and keep a proper perspective when reading this book. A very interesting vantage point.

Wonderfully simple, yet deeply profound writing on Christianity. Enjoyed it so much that once I finished it, I immediately started over.
