From the Back Cover:

Morals are the ropes and axes necessary for climbing those great heights from which a greater journey begins. That journey leads to the happy land of the Trinity. It is there that joys, almost unimaginable in this world, begin. Begin not end. from the preface
In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis s famous devil derides the Christian year as The Same Old Thing. To combat this, Walter Hooper has drawn from Lewis s vast bibliography, accumulating short meditations that correspond to each day of the Christian calendar. Hooper has chosen passages that emphasize Lewis illuminatingly matter-of-fact approach to religion, with each entry focused on themes such as Nearness to God, Heaven and Sexuality, or Two Kinds of Good and Bad. In addition to providing food for thought, these bite-sized excerpts facilitate a yearlong journey towards achieving the joy that Lewis wrote is the serious business of heaven.
"The point about reading C. S. Lewis is that he makes you sure, whatever you believe, that religion accepted or rejected means something extremely serious, demanding the entire energy of the mind." Harper s
