A collection of essays and addresses, mostly occasional.

They range from an address to seminarians on theology to an article on what space travel meant to religion. Several on language and literature in relationship with Christianity. The modern age, futility, the Psalms, and much more.

Recommends it for: Anyone
An excellent book of essays written by C.S. Lewis. Such subjects as Christianity and Literature; Chritianity and Culture; On Ethics; The Poison of Subjectivism; De Futilitate; The Seeing Eye; and so on. Lewis, whether he owned this label or not, was an existentialist of the greatest proportions. It would be wondrous to see him and Keirkegaard sit and have a conversation in heaven.
