This was a fun collection of writings by C.S. Lewis. As I have always enjoyed his work, I decided to pick this up as a quick read through at different times in my life.

It is filled with beautiful writings that make you smile, cause you to ponder, and even feel at peace. As most people know, C.S. Lewis was a Christian so this does contain a lot of writing about God, faith, and Christianity. I hope that does not deter you from picking this up.

An absolutely beautiful collection if you are looking f

Timeless Advice

This is a little book full of the wisdom that C.S. Lewis collected and gave out to his many readers. And I absolutely love it. Compiled by two women who absolutely love Lewis’ works.

Arranged by topic, these quotes are collected from all of his books, letters, and essays. Fiction and nonfiction, it doesn’t matter. Fiction is a wonderful medium for conveying truth, and Lewis knew this very well. And all of these quotes inspire a deep desire to learn more about the God that this man

This book is a quick read. A really quick read—maybe 30 minutes. Each page has a quotation from a C.S. Lewis, an English writer who focused on complex issues of faith in a modern world. The editors, Andrea Kirk Assaff and Kelly Anne Leahy, provide so little that the short read is worth the effort. The problem is, there’s no context for understanding Lewis’s work. Lewis was praised for taking on major issues in faith. The one page/one quotation format falls far short of his work.

How can a book of quotes from the works of C. S. Lewis be rated as anything but great? Could the author have chosen better quotes? Maybe. However, I doubt it. One would have to read and re-read all the Lewis books again in order to judge. I am impressed by the width and depth of the compiler's choices. Read if you enjoy mulling over what you read.

This is packed with wonderful quotes, some of which I was familiar with already, and I enjoyed it. Lewis is one that I have to read really slowly because my brain just can't digest his writing unless I take the time to focus. So although this looks like a little book that you could just pick up and enjoy at your leisure, it was not a relaxing bit of reading in the slightest. But that's okay!
