One thought on “The Complete C.S. Lewis Signature Classics

  1. ryan

    C.S Lewis was brilliant, and in my opinion, the single best Christian thinker of the modern era You don t have to be a Christian or even consider yourself to be religious to appreciate the depth to which Lewis understood faith, humanity, its failings, and what it means to be Christian in this day and age This is not to say you will always agree with what he argues, but definately check it out if you want to read a great mind grappling with some very pertinent religious questions.

    Two quotes that really hit home for me Pg 202, 3rd paragraph That is why He warned people to count the cost before becoming Christians Make no mistake, He says, if you let me, I will make you perfect The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for Nothing less, or other, than that You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away But if you do not push Me away, understand that I am going to see this job through Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthly lif [...]

    Mere ChristianityThere is simply no one else who can explain the Christian faith as clearly and concisely as C S Lewis did This book is truly THE book to read, especially for intellectuals who are still struggling to understand the Bible, which can sometimes be unfathomably obscure.The Screwtape LettersA most interesting series of letters, written from the perspective of an experienced tempter , a senior devil giving advice to a junior devil on how to corrupt a target human I sincerely applaud L [...]

    Adam gave me the boxed set ok, I cheated and it was on CD but I had read all of these years ago Time and listening instead of reading allowed a new light to shine on CS Lewis s greatest Problem of Pain is very powerful and is as strong in evidences as Mere Christianity I love this author and am often heard quoting him.

  5. Zachary

    Words cannot express how much this collection of Lewis works has meant to my life Outside the Bible, I don t think any other written work has had the impact on me that these books have Lewis can destroy your intellectual doubts and arguments on the one hand and then blow you away with finely crafted fiction A true genius, both as an apologist and as an author Mere Christianity is brilliant, readable, and insanely convicting The Screwtape Letters is sardonically hilarious and eye opening The Grea [...]

  6. Christopher Selmek

    I recently read an article stating that C.S Lewis, possibly the greatest Christian apologist of the 20th Century, was a heretic and a closet Gnostic Not only did he become a Catholic toward the end of his life, he also suggested that some Pagans might be surprised to find that they belong to Jesus s flock even without knowing it, and that hell is a state of mind Having read his signature classics, I am impressed by how masterfully Lewis explains his view of God and Jesus by appealing to logic, r [...]

  7. Max Maxwell

    This is a volume that everyone should own, as the 25 dollars or so asking price is a smidgen for the quality of the seven books contained within it Anyone can appreciate the writing despite the fact that he was the twentieth century s greatest Protestant apologist, he was also one of that century s intellectual giants, a man that the word erudite hardly seems to do justice to Here, you get literature the scathing The Screwtape Letters and also The Great Divorce, his answer to Blake s The Marriag [...]

  8. Allen

    I read Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity before and listening to the audio books renewed my enjoyment of this great thinker and writer When I read Screwtape Letters with a friend a few years ago, he commented that Lewis could be considered prophetic in certain ways I see what he meant now as I listened to Screwtape Letters again, particularly with regard to the decline of individuality and excellence in the name of equality I m as good as you envy, Screwtape Proposes a Toast.I learned abo [...]

  9. Marilou

    Almost finished listening to the Problem of Pain I feel so stupid I can t follow his train of thought I know he s building a case but I just can t stay with him Wish I had an outline of the book key points Surely someone teaches a class on this and could give me an outline 3 30 08 I found a lecture series on cd on the works of Lewis However, as I am listening to the reading of The Great Divorce, I am reduced to tears of conviction How is it that I can t understand his philosophical writings but [...]

  10. Justin Wiggins

    C.S.Lewis will go down in history as one of the greatest Christian philosophers of all time What is so great about him is his understanding of how important the existential questions are which every human being has,and approaching them in honesty and understanding In other words, what is so great about him is his love for human beings to experience Truth in the person of Jesus Christ And of course his prose writing style just flows beautifully and his imagination was powerful Indeed, Lewis will [...]

  11. Terri

    At under 20, this compilation of C.S Lewis s work is a great price 752 pages It includes Mere ChristianityThe Screwtape LettersThe Great DivorceThe Problem of PainMiraclesA Grief ObservedThe Abolition of ManC.S Lewis writes with clarity about theology in such an understandable way He is convincing and unrelenting in his beliefs about Christianity without being even slightly obnoxious Because he s been on the other side of the argument, he writes with compassion and insight.The one little thing a [...]

  12. Lynne Williams

    All great Mere Christianity is logic at it best The Screwtape Letters, from a Senior Devil to a Junior One are succinct, sensible with a nicely, vicious threat in every chapter The Great Divorce shows that no one stays in the grey place unless they want to.

  13. Robert

    Only finished the first book, Mere Christianity, but will definitely return to read the others Perhaps one Lewis book per break.

  14. Robert Vincent

    I finished The Abolition of Man on June 20, 2015 thereby, finishing The Complete C.S Lewis Signature Classics This book is a scholarly writing taken from a lecture given by the author I found it hard to understand However, Chapter three, titled the same as the book itself made clear the intent or message of the book The following quote could be taken as a summary statement The process which, if not checked, will abolish Man goes on apace among Communists and Democrats no less than among Fascists [...]

  15. Colleen

    The Complete C.S Lewis Signature ClassicsMere Christianity It is pretty close to the most basic, Christianity 101 class a person could ever take I wouldn t recommend it for brand new Christians because, in brevity, he said some things that could be taken out of context by the uninformed or even those who are just looking for a reason smear our faith But it is nearly perfect in every other way I also have a greater respect for math, now since he lays everything out logically like a math equation [...]

  16. Maria Keffler

    I could read anything C.S Lewis wrote over and over and over again I wish I could sit with him over a cup of tea and ask him his thoughts on today s culture, politics, and state of the Church But in fact, many of the things he wrote 40 50 years ago are spot on when read in light of contemporary events This volume is one of my favorites and I ll never let it out of my house.

  17. Steven A.

    A great book for meditation and perspective All of the stories I found interesting, thought provoking, and useful for self introspection Too many stories and concepts to go into detail.

  18. Arjay

    June 29, 2013I just finished Mere Christianity, and I m really enjoying Lewis writing He goes about providing his own perspective on his faith and how he views it in a very humble way He never purports to know the absolute answer to everything, and avoids topics which, albeit controversial and interesting, are best avoided for the mere reason that he could never understand the struggles of being in the position these topics warrant For example, Lewis avoids speaking about abortion It s easy to r [...]

  19. Chris

    So good, so happy to reread Lewis stuff Lewis is one of those authors, along with Robert Barron, Walter Miller and GK Chesterton, whose writings have helped to strengthen my faith Like The Screwtape Letters which, admittedly, always manages to scare the crap out of me because I recognize so much of myself in what Screwtape is encouraging But it also reminds me to laugh at my failings and my foibles and to always remember God s mercy But really, whenever I read Screwtape my mood follows a sine cu [...]

  20. Adam Graham

    What makes Mere Christianity The oft read often recommended classic so beloved and appreciated in Christian circles For the most part with the exception of one chapter, Lewis breaks no new ground in his arguments and has nothing earth shattering The difference is one of approach Many apologist approach apologetics like lawyers or like defending a Master s thesis The arguments are laid out in logical clear order on the age of manuscripts and fossil records, of quotes from Ancient Historians, and [...]

  21. Ethan

    Mere Christianity an effective way of attempting to make a robust defense for the existence of God and many aspects of the faith that pose challenges to those who do not believe The influence of this book on modern Evangelicalism is evident by how often it is quoted.The Screwtape Letters An interesting reversal of expectations, hearing from the dark side and considering Jesus as the Enemy To consider the attack from the other side leads to a lot of insights and questions, but one has to wonder h [...]

    Currently Finished THE PROBLEM OF PAIN it was a tough read You really have to pay attention There are alot of psychology logic operators such as if then , or and while etc Its easy to get lost if you miss a Logic Operator my own term not sure if it is a real term or not and reverse the context on accident So you have to really take it slow or for some people might be easyCurrently reading The Screw tape Letters it is in the first person written from the Devil So it is a bit hard too, because eve [...]

  23. Shad

    So far, I ve read Mere Chritianity, The Screwtape Letters and am part way through Miracles I like the analytical approach to Christianity as long as it is not the only approach, because I believe we are required to work on faith to some extent in this life Of course, learning is an act of faith, and I deeply appreciate the profound thinking Mr Lewis has done and his ability to communicate it to the rest of us Knowing the Gospel certainly helps put some of his thoughts into perspective and elimin [...]

  24. Judy

    This took a long time to read It is very dense with thought I enjoyed The Great Divorce and The Screwtape Letters since they were a bit easier to read The rest I found very challenging and am not sure I understand this great thinker, but I do come away with some beneficial thoughts For example, if I believe that God is good, then how do I reconcile the things that happen that are not good CSLewis poses the idea that our understanding of good must be insufficient I especially appreciate his willi [...]

  25. Dianne Davidson

    I admire people who can enter into another s point of view Lewis did this brilliantly than anyone I have ever seen with the exception of Hillary Jordon s Mudbound I often wonder what motivates the undertaking of writen work particularly this one by Lewis A little research provided a workable answer for me It was writen amid surviving the bombngs of WWII which was fought against a clearly evil foe Trying to maintain decorum of living amid bombs exploding, sirons screaming and seeking news of lov [...]

  26. Kitchengrrl

    I ve only listened to The Screwtape Letters so far, which was the main reason I picked this up The reader did dan excellent job of being superior and creepy This was a very interesting piece of Christian philosophy, delivered in a truly unique way The afterword where Screwtape delivers a commencement address to the Tempters College is such a screed against the state of modern education that it should be required reading for all the jerks in Congress and the Legislature who make laws about school [...]

  27. Fred

    This collection of works includes many of Lewis s most famous writing There are the philosophical treatises as well his stories Having read this entire work, I simply don t know how to accurately rate it His intellectual arguments on behalf of Christianity seem pertinent, if not a bit dated And the prose of his creative writing is interesting Yet, I don t feel particularly educated or entertained by these works Perhaps allowing them to distill for a while in my mind will help.Give it a try and s [...]

  28. Alan Johnson

    I just finished the Screwtape Letters and all i can say is wow What truely insightful man Lewis must have been The amazing thing to me is that any person who calls him or herself a Christian no matter what denomination, should be able to read this book and find themselves nodding their heads in agreement He addresses such poignant topics and principles which it seems are common to Christians in general and not just one group of them i highly recommend the Screwtape Letters to anyone and everyone [...]
