This book is a three-in-one volume of Lewis writings. The first, Pilgrim's Regress was written in the early 1930s, the second two are collections of his shorter works published after his death in 1963. How to review them? Separately, of course.

Pilgrim's Regress is an allegory, which I generally avoid. It was also Lewis' first fiction work, so I expected it to be poor. In fact, in an afterword written ten years later, Lewis accuses himself of being obtuse and bitter. He was certainly obtuse. If t

Another classic from one of the foundational Christian apologetics of our time.

This review is for the fiction section only as I have reserved my Goodreads account for that purpose since I am a fiction writer.

The first book of the three is The Pilgrim's Regress, a play on words of The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan. Like The Pilgrim's Progress, it is an allegory that endeavors to present a defense for Christianity, reason, and romanticism.

The main character in the book is John who early in his life is presented with a basic understanding of the Rules and the Landlord.

If man was really supposed to find a rational truth, Lewis seems to have come pretty far. He found something after thinking it all out. This book is a collection of an allegory and two sets of essays. The essays are short and sharp and the Pelgrims Regress story is both bizar and eloquent. The biggest shock comes right in the first part:

When he [as a young boy] looked round he saw what he had never expected, yet he was not surprised. There in the grass beside him sat a laughing brown girl of abo

4 stars because it is CS Lewis. 4 stars though because it's not his best writing, and it seems that in alot of parts he was still working out his theology. I understood the Pilgrim's Regress, but got mired in it about 2/3 of the way through. I preferred the essays and letters that are in the latter part of the book.

I tried to finish this book. CSLewis became profoundly deep in his writing that I felt I needed a scholars degree to comprehend it. I did not finish but half and decided to give my brain freedom from such back and forth mind boggling debates. I would never have wanted to be in the brain thoughts of CSLewis.

I love C.S. Lewis but the allegory Pilgrim's Regress was a bit heavy.
