Christian Reflections book. It is also interesting in that . Lewis by no means wanted to be a Christian at all, and came to acknowledge God reluctantly, "kicking and screaming"; this is a counter argument to the claim that only people who want to believe in God, can believe in God. Here we have someone who by no means wanted to believe, yet, was drawn to God.

Christian Reflections contains fourteen of Lewis's papers defending Christianity. This book is a veritable jewel. Clyde Kilby in Chicago Tribune "This volume will be of special interest to people whose philosophy runs to futility, determinism, and atheism. They are colorfully varied, covering such topics as Christianity and literature, Christianity and culture, ethics, futility, church music, modern theology and biblical criticism, the Psalms, and petitionary prayer. Common to them all, however, are the uniquely effective style of C. Lewis and the basic presuppositions of his theology - his "mere" Christianity.

S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers.

Lewis's book A Grief Observed describes his experience of bereavement in such a raw and personal fashion that he originally released it under the pseudonym N. W. Clerk to keep readers from associating the book with him. Ironically, many friends recommended the book to Lewis as a method for dealing with his own grief. ISBN 978-0-310-26509-2.

Christian Reflections - C. Lewis himself considered the book’s popularity disproportionate to its worth: he liked Perelandra best of all his works and thought it worth twenty Screwtapes. Still though he bore a grudge against the book and chafed at having always to be ‘the author of The Screwtape Letters’ on the dust-jackets of most of his subsequent books, I never heard him say anything that could be taken as a retraction of its contents.

Shortly after his conversion in 1929, C. S. Lewis wrote to a friend, When all is said (and truly said) about the divisions of Christendom, there remains, by Gods mercy, an enormous common ground. From that time on, Lewis thought that the best service he could do for his unbelieving neighbors was to explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times — that enormous common ground which he usually referred to as mere Christianity.Lewiss defense of Christianity was colorfully varied — the subjects he covered ranged widely, including Christianity and literature, Christianity and culture, ethics, futility, church music, modern theology and biblical criticism, the Psalms, and petitionary prayer.Presented in chronological order, some of the fourteen papers included in this collection were written specifically for periodicals, while others, published here for the first time, were read to societies in and around Oxford and Cambridge. Common to them all, however, are the uniquely effective style of C. S. Lewis and the basic presuppositions of his theology — his mere Christianity.

Though by his own admission, Lewis is no theologian, his essays and speeches on the Christian views of various topics will be valuable to any Christian reader. Is this work as cohesive as "Mere Christianity" or as witty as "Screwtape"? Certainly not; however, this work does two things: (1) It broadens our understanding of Lewis' thought. (2) It provides us with deep probing thoughts on the matters addressed.

In this work, Lewis deals with a Christian approach to literature and aesthetics, an apologetic for the spiritual nature of Christian worship, a discussion of the topic of ethics and whether a "Christian" ethic should be taught to the world, an apologetic response to those who claim that the purpose of nature is merely futile, an attack on post-modern subjectivity, an attack on the theory of evolution and a suggestion on how others should do the same, a discussion on Church Music, a debate on how Christians should view history, an analysis of some imprecatory Psalms, a discussion of the connection between emotions and thought in language, a difficult question on how Christians should pray (left unresolved), a blistering attack on higher criticism, and an apologetic reply to the Russian cosmonaut who stated that he had been in space and did not see God.

I am certain that there are other works that include much more of the shorter writings of Lewis, but this succinct set of works will prove immensely valuable to the reader.

I love everything by C. S. Lewis, and am trying to read through everything he has ever written (that I can find, anyway). This is a book of collected philosophical and theological essays, most of which appear to be transcripts or manuscripts from lectures and talks he gave at various places and various times during his career.

The essays range from the place of Christianity within literature and culture, all the way to talking about Lewis' distaste for church music and 20th Century European Historical Criticism.

Most of these essays were more technical than other essays from Lewis, and most readers will probably find the content and ideas a little too advanced for their taste. I got bored by several of the essays, especially since the questions which were being asked during the life of C. S. Lewis are not really being asked any longer.

Nevertheless, I did find his essays on Church Music, the Psalms, Petitionary Prayer, Biblical Criticism, and The Seeing Eye (about the possibility of aliens on other planets) to be insightful and "classic C. S. Lewis."

Not an easy read, but then that is why I bought it. Points well thought out.

Wanted to read this for a long time. Finally got it in a form that's convenient for me and my library. Lewis has a unique way of 'getting to the real stuff' that matters. That's why I've always liked his writings.

I am about halfway through the book, it is very thought provoking. The nice thing about this book is that you can pick and choose which article (chapter) to read or reread.
I bought this book for college and it was a very good book to challenge you and how you think.
