it was amazing
bookshelves: christian-theology

I've meant to read this for a long time. The edition of this I read had both The Great Divorce and The Abolition of Man. The Great Divorce is one of my all time favorite books, of any genre. This book is also excellent, though of a totally different type.

This book will/does require multiple readings if we want to get the most out of it. Also considering when this book was written (1943) then looking at the world today and seeing how things have progressed it could be eye opening and even a bit frightening.

I can recommend it highly. I will not try to lay out what the book is about and the premise of the book. I could never do it justice. C.S.Lewis was/is a gift to humankind and I'd really recommend his writings not be missed.

Think you disagree because you're and atheist? I humbly suggest you actually read his writings and see if you disagree. After all C.S.Lewis was at one time a confirmed atheist also.

Quote from, Surprised by Joy: "A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading." - C. S. Lewis
