Something about Lewis captures my interest. Maybe it is that he's far above my intellectual capacity but I feel like I can be stretched to his heights by sticking with him.

A great analysis of The Problem of Pain and A Grief Observed. It includes relevant verses and good background information. I learned more about C.S. (Jack) Lewis' life, which is really helpful in seeing where his perspectives are from. I haven't read A Grief Observed yet, but reading this cause me to want to read it soon.

A free will type of defense for the problem of evil. His take on animal suffering is very interesting. It is also nice that he includes Heaven in his book because a lot of problem of evil books don't include it. His focus is on the age old question: If God is all good, all knowing, all powerful then why is there evil. He does a pretty good job with it too.

A true depiction of grief but one so overwhelmed by his religious questions that I can hardly read it without gagging.
