Read from June 04 to 23, 2012

1. This is one of the greatest books on Christianity ever written. Lewis creates a world that is simple enough for us to understand the direct correlations to temptation in our own lives. The symbols are so basic, the scenes in Hell are so realistic we can more clearly see how the devil tempts us.

2. The language is so eloquent. Much like scripture, I could read this several dozen times and still not catch everything.

3. I love its emphasis on prayer. The devils try very hard to dissuade their subject from praying to "The Enemy." A good reminder for Christians. If you're into that kind of Christianity thing.
