Publisher Description

"Captivating reading that builds the faith while it fills the mind with greatness."--Sherwood Wirt, former editor, DECISION Magazine One of this century's greatest writers of fact, fiction, and fantasy explores, in utterly beautiful terms, questions of faith in the modern world:

  • On the experience of miracles
  • On silence and religious belief
  • On the assumed conflict between work and prayer
  • On the error of trying to lead "a good life" without Christ
  • On the necessity of dogma to religion
  • On the dangers of national repentance
  • On the commercialization of Christmas . . . and more

"The searching mind and the poetic spirit of C.S. Lewis are readily evident in this collection of essays edited by his one-time secretary, Walter Hopper. Here the reader finds the tough-mind polemicist relishing the debate; here too the kindly teacher explaining a complex abstraction by means of clarifying analogies; here the public speaker addressing his varied audience with all the humility and grace of a man who knows how much more remains to be unknown."--The New York Times Book Review
