9780156027830: A Mind Awake: An Anthology of C. S. Lewis

“He believed that such problems had at least essential answers and set out like a hound on the scent of a fox to find them. He liked answers better than questions.” – from the Preface

C.S. Lewis believed in the absolute logic of faith; his books, letters, and essays demonstrated the immutability of religion in his life. This collection mines their pages to bring out some of his essential lessons and to showcase the themes that provided the foundation for his philosophy: The Nature of Man, The Moral World, Sin, The Christian Commitment, Love and Sex, Hell and Heaven, and others. His preoccupations produced inspiring literature that was sometimes whimsical, often provocative, and always emotionally compelling. Here, then, is an anthology to return to again and again—whenever we most need wisdom, insight into how best to wrestle with a particular challenge, or simply the kind of unexpected perspective Lewis always provides.

"Lewis’s remorseless pursuit of clarity, his intense moral concern, [and] the peculiar hue of myth, faerie, and Eden which informs all his work . . . these are here, and in proportion to how one would find them if one were to read every Lewis ever published." —New York Times Book Review

"A comprehensive reminder of the wit, understanding, courage, principles, and prejudices of one of the great lay preachers of our time."—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.
