Great voice for a great book.

I love how relatable Lewis is in everyday life. The voice goes well with the feel of Lewis as well.

Loved it.

This short book is a nice collection of essays written by Lewis in other publications. As always, Lewis’ writing and insights are impressive. And, I particularly loved this grouping of his thoughts. Very helpful.

C.S. Lewis at his finest, deepest, most profound-

I'm a devotee of Lewis and his extremely simple approach to the unknown. He lets the facts lead to the logical conclusions. He asks in Chapter 8, what is the reaction when a writer puts himself in a play? Yet when we read his books - like this one, and letters he has written "to Malcom", e. g.- I can see Professor Kirk so very plainly. "It's just logic! What do they teach the children in these schools, anyway?"

And this is C.S. Lewis's approach to the search for God. It is a series of essays, but reads a bit like a journal. He's just so brilliant, and at times I felt like I was trying to capture a moonbeam or the glimpse of a red-winged blackbird's flash in the corner of my eye. Ephemeral, often just out of reach, yet so clearly reality.

Interesting and Thought Provoking

Any additional comments?

Although this was not an actual specifically written book, it is a compilation of the relevant 'Apologetics' essays and articles that C S Lewis had written over a 20 year period, as such, this is an amazing and 'definitive' book, to be read alongside 'Mere Christianity' 'Surprised by Joy' and 'God In The Dock'.

Unfortunately, I am one of those (probably many), hesitant Christians, who believe, but have an element of timidity in confessing, sharing or even admitting my belief! I'm not proud of it, but I know that God is working with me on this. One of His solutions for me?: C S Lewis.

This collection of essays underline and emphasise many things that we believe as Christians, with thought provoking discussions on topics that, although maybe not specifically dwelt on, cover areas that, such hesitant Christians as I, can exclaim; "Ah yes!" to.

A couple of the essays were a little over my head - the Classics references - but I still achieved an overall understanding of the matter discussed. However notwithstanding this statement, this is an easy, interesting and thought provoking audiobook, which was interesting enough for me to listen to a few times. Not because I 'didn't get it', but because I DID get it, and wanted to remember it!

This book is for you if you can relate to what I've written above.
This book is for you if you have questions about Christianity.
This book is for you if you are currently an Agnostic or an Atheist and want to hear the arguments that other Christians cannot satisfactorily articulate.
This book is for you if you're just plain curious.

C S Lewis was a very talented, gifted, articulate man. He was also an Atheist who put God in the Dock, and ended up being converted. You cannot afford to pass on this audiobook, it's worth Every penny.
