9780006240686: Fern Seed and Elephants and Other Essays on Christianity

This collection of seven essays show C.S. Lewis at his most vigorous, defending his vision of a full-blooded, orthodox Christianity in his matchless prose style.

The efficacy of prayer, ‘theologians who claim to see fern-seed and who can’t see an elephant ten yards away in broad daylight’, the difference between genuine forgiveness and mere excusing, whether there is life on other planets and if so, what our attitude as Christians should be… the brilliance and force of C.S. Lewis’s thinking delights and challenges.

Review:

‘The magic of his writings shows no abatement… an admirable collection.’
Church Times

From the Back Cover:

In 1959, C.S. Lewis read a paper to students at Cambridge attacking theologians who 'claim to see fern-seed and can't see the elephant ten yards away in broad daylight.’

These seven essays show Lewis at his most vigorous, defending his vision of a full-blooded, orthodox Christianity in his matchless prose style.

Among the subjects he addresses are the difference between forgiveness and excusing, the individual 'member' of the Christian Body, 'The World's Last Night', and the implications of there being life on other planets.

'"Every page is worth reading and pausing over."'
Methodist Recorder

'"The magic of his writings shows no abatement…an admirable collection."'
