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.

Not my favorite of Lewis's works. It's a collection of essays. Some of them are incredible, some of them are not as incredible. Still a good read.

Best essay: "The Funeral of a Great Myth" I also greatly enjoyed "The Psalms." Another good set of collected essays to read from Lewis.

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.

“For agnosticism is, in a sense, what I am preaching. I do not wish to reduce the sceptical element in your minds. I am only suggesting that it need not be reserved exclusively for the New Testament and the Creeds. Try doubting something else.” 3 likes
