Essays by one of the greatest Christian writers2016年10月1日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This is a series of essays on various Christian questions. C.S. Lewis is my favorite author in this field. I first came to know his writings through reading 'Mere Christianity'. I listen to Christian radio and Charles Colson had commented that it was 'Mere Christianity' that brought him to be a Christian. So I read the book. No one can say that C.S. Lewis is light reading. And this book is no exception. It does take concentration and quiet time to grasp the concepts discussed. But I am enjoying the book very much. The one thing that C.S. Lewis does best is using irrefutable logic to explain his position. After finishing an essay, you are left with a thought of 'Wow' and the desire to read it again.
Lectures have not aged well2018年4月6日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
C.S. Lewis died 55 years ago, yet much of his writing remains fresh. Unfortunately, these collected lectures (not letters as the Kindle edition subtitle calls them) show they are from a different age. Perhaps it is a matter of audience. These lectures were delivered to all male university audiences in the 1940s and one consequence is that Lewis seemingly has no need ever to say anything positive about women. They contribute little that Lewis didn’t say better in other, better known works. Unless you are determined to read everything Lewis wrote, you can skip this volume.
Insightful essays that only grow better with age2019年1月1日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I first found a battered copy Weight of Glory in my college library and it was instrumental in shaping my understanding of the spiritual world. As time goes on, I have realized new insights from the various essays and twenty years later I understand and appreciate aspects of Lewis' insights that did not register with me as a young student. This is worth reading and rereading. It's one of a few books that I still keep in the deadtree version even in the digital age.
