9780156027663: Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer

"We want to know not how we should pray if we were perfect but how we should pray being as we now are."
What are we doing when we pray? What is at the heart of this most intimate conversation, the dialogue between a person and God? How does prayer--its form, its regularity, its content, its insistence--shape who we are and how we believe? In this collection of letters from C. S. Lewis to a close friend, Malcolm, we see an intimate side of Lewis as he considers all aspects of prayer and how this singular ritual impacts the lives and souls of the faithful. With depth, wit, and intelligence, as well as his sincere sense of a continued spiritual journey, Lewis brings us closer to understanding the role of prayer in our lives and the ways in which we might better imagine our relationship with God.

"A beautifully executed and deeply moving little book." --Saturday Review
"[Lewis] is writing about a path that he had to find, and the reader feels not so much that he is listening to what C.S. Lewis has to say but that he is making his own search with a humorous, sensible friend beside him." --Times Literary Supplement

C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Surprised by Joy.

Review:

"A beautifully executed and deeply moving book" (Saturday Review).
“A beautifully executed and deeply moving book” (Saturday Review).
"A beautifully executed and deeply moving little book." --Saturday Review

"[Lewis] is writing about a path that he had to find, and the reader feels not so much that he is listening to what C.S. Lewis has to say but that he is making his own search with a humorous, sensible friend beside him. That is writing that requires great literary skill ... That this should be the last book that we shall have from C. S. Lewis is a matter of genuine regret."--Times Literary Supplement

"The unbeliever is likely to enjoy the book most for its shrewd asides...Opinions of this kind are expressed with the admirable directness and simplicity which characterized the style of this often indirect and highly complex man."--New Statesman
