CS Lewis wrote a lot of letters. And his literary estate has come up with a lot of compilations. This particular compilation, edited by Paul F. Ford, compiles a good number of Lewis letters under the theme of spiritual direction. That is, the letters here are ones in which Lewis either gave advice (Ford labels these 'spiritual direction' letters), sought advice (Ford labelled these 'spiritual discipleship'), or wrote to his peers ('equals', Ford labels them, and calls these letters 'spiritual companionship' letters) about spiritual matters. Perhaps not a wise purchase if you already have the three volumes of collected letters of CS Lewis. Or perhaps wise because it gives you access to a specific set of letters from Lewis' vast body of epistolaria. The book is not cheap, or at least, my hardcover edition is not. So the buyer will have to choose.
