Great book! The title address is probably the most magnificent, but all are well worth reading many times over.

"At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the
door. We discern the freshness and purity of the morning, but they do
not make us fresh and pure. We cannot mingle with the splendours we see.
But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumour
that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in.
"
--C. S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"
