Would definitely give it 4.5 stars if that were possible. Waiting for my wife while she shopped at a thrift store, I looked through the children's books for something interesting (children's books, 'cause I didn't want to have to dissolve anything " ...more

This book is an entertaining, indeed, hilarious story that I found considerably more satisfying than my last Chesterton novel (The Man Who Was Thursday).

Chesterton's characters are real, even when barely believable; some are lovable and some detestab

Format notwithstanding (a veteran "Uncle Devil" writing to his novice "Nephew Devil"), I did not find this book be very illustrative, or realistically informative, regarding the thoughts and dealings of demons with each other or with humans, and, I h ...more

With Christ in the School of Prayer by Andrew Murray

There's a reason this book has endured. If there were such a thing as a "definitive work" on the subject of prayer, this might well be it.

"I was with book, as a woman is with child."
So says Orual, the "writer" and protagonist of this story.

Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
“When the time comes to you at which you will be forced at last to utter the speech which has lain at the center of your soul for years, which you have, all that time, idiot-like, been saying over and over, you'll not talk about the joy of words. I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer. Till that word can be dug out of us, why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?”
