Interesting and Deep

This audiobook requires several forays. Not because it is disinteresting, but because it covers several topics and with such thoroughness, one sometimes feels quite unschooled!

I purchased this mainly for Lewis' Apologetics work, which I find fascinating and which gives me a script I can rely on when faced with a colleague or friends' agnosticism or atheism. However I found that he wrote about many and varied subjects, both at the request/behest of another, or because he felt that it should be addressed: So he addressed it. For me, the most fascinating of these dealt with corporal punishment, which was initially shunned in the UK, but addressed - quite seriously and studiously - in Australia.

Also worth a revisit are Lewis' 2 incomplete novels, at the end of this audiobook. I'm sure that I am doing Lewis an injustice in rating the content so lowly but, as a compilation of his many, many essays, on a first pass, this is a lot to absorb. I shall probably revise this review after my 3rd perusal.

If you are a C S Lewis fan - this is definitely a book for you. It does not disappoint. It is superbly read by the narrator whom, I've now begun to associate as the voice of C S Lewis, given that all of his work is written in the first person text.

Definitely worth the money for the time that you will be investing in this audiobook.

A Thoughtful and Erudite Perspective of Christianity

A wonderfully erudite and intelligent perspective of Christianity. I am thoroughly enjoying this collection. Thanks!

Allthough many and various topics are covered , C S Lewis's thoughts about Christianity run throughout and pops up again and again.

These essays need to be listened to more than once, to get the full grasp the author intended for the listener, in my view.
