Read from June 18 to 27, 2012, read count: 1

Very powerful, very well done. In his usual colloquial, conversational style, he essentially makes two arguments: (1) against naturalism (what the book is ostensibly about--"a preliminary study in whether miracles are possible"), and (2) the significance of miracles in the Christian worldview.

2 is a bit of a leap from 1; Lewis does not consider other monotheisms for very long, simply saying that miracles are less central to Judaism or to Islam, to the latter of which they are almost unnecessary. They are inseparable from Christianity, and so he explicates a kind of rationale for miracles from the perspective of a Christian metaphysics.

Part 1 is great, and should be read by all. Part 2 is also great, and should be read in Sunday School.
