9780006237396: Prayer: Letters to Malcolm

In this last book by C.S. Lewis, two very ordinary laymen are discussing the practical and speculative problems of prayers as these appear to them.

From the Back Cover:

C.S. Lewis's last book is a sane, brilliantly imaginative approach to the problems of prayer. Published posthumously, it still stayed on the best-seller lists for many weeks.

“I think it likely that it will become Lewis's most enduring memorial.”
HUGH MONTEFIORE

“It is splendid, glorious stuff, the product of a luminous and original mind, though and honest…yet endowed with an extraordinary sensitivity and tenderness for the fears or foibles of men.”
CHURCH TIMES

“This last book may well be more valued than many of the others, and come to be regarded with 'The Screwtape Letters' as the representative work of a very attractive man.”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

About the Author:

Born in Ireland in 1898, C.S. Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-1954. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. C.S. Lewis was for many years an atheist, and described his conversion in his autobiography Surprised by Joy thus: “In the Trinity Term of 1929, I gave in and admitted that God was God … perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in al England.” One of the most gifted and influential Christian writers of the twentieth century, he is also celebrated for his award-winning Narnia stories, his literary criticism and science fiction. C.S. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
