  2. This book is a collection of fake letters to a friend focusing on various aspects of and questions about prayer Many of these are practical considerations, and I didn t feel like all were important or relevant to me, but I still found pieces of wisdom to keep from it, usually expressed in the most beautifully touching phrases, Lewis always transforming complex religious questions into the most simple and beautiful truths He repeats many times that these are only his musings and should not be This book is a collection of fake letters to a friend focusing on various aspects of and questions about prayer Many of these are practical considerations, and I didn t feel like all were important or relevant to me, but I still found pieces of wisdom to keep from it, usually expressed in the most beautifully touching phrases, Lewis always transforming complex religious questions into the most simple and beautiful truths He ...

  3. Spectacular and beautiful CS Lewis earlier books were very well written and in my personal opinion rather well argued This is not an argued book, though the subtitle reflections is aapt description That s not to say Lewis fails to present good arguments for his ideas, but the matter of the book isof a search than of a telling Especially towards the end, Lewis shows how much he has learned through his life on how to describe the beauty that we see beyond the physicalit Spectacular and beautiful CS Lewis earlier books were very well written and in my personal opinion rather well argued This is not an argu...

  4. I am not saying to anyone in the world Your explanation is wrong I am saying Your explanation leaves the mystery for me still a mystery C.S Lewis witty and candid ability to convey his thoughts never ceases to amaze me This short but powerful read was no different.

  5. Letters to Malcolm Chiefly on Prayer has the distinction of being the final work that CS Lewis produced The manuscript was completed in May of 1963, approximately six months before his death.The book s structure takes the form of fictional letters written by Lewis to his friend Malcolm in which they discusses matters of deep importance to the Christian life Mostly...

  6. Not Lewis at his best The excuse could be made that, as a posthumous book, it may not have been quite ready for publication The Discarded Image An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature was also published after Lewis died, but despite being non fiction is just short of amazing.The format is much like The Screwtape Letters one side of an exchange of letters, this one supposedly with C S Lewis with an old friend Malcolm Most, but not all, time references seem to date it to th Not Lewis at his best The excuse could be made that, as a posthumous book, it may not have been quite ready for publication The Discarded Image An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature was also published after Lewis died, but despite being non fiction is just short of amazing.The format is much like The Screwtape Letters one side of an exchange of letters, this one supposedly with C S Lewis with an old friend Malcolm Most, but not all, time references seem to date it to th...

  7. Lewis s letters to a FICTIONAL friend are a delight to read I am amazed at how many reviewers think these are real letters written to a real person In these letters, Lewis addresses many different facets of prayer and our inhibitions when it comes to prayer It is a very quotable bo...

  8. Such a believable mix of the convivial and the profound that I was surprised to find out the dialogue of letters was fictional Oh well Very good anyway Now I don t have to sigh with the realization that none of my conversational correspondence reaches those levels.

  9. I have read and re read this book, and I love something new in it each time A few marked lines, starting at the beginning, so weighted toward the literal beginning of the book Nothing makes an absent friend so present as a disagreement.The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of our attention would have been on God.Any tendency to a passionate preference for one type of service must be regarded simply as temptat...

  10. I am very, very curious about this one I have so many questions and confusions about prayer, with the result being that I don t feel very good at it and I hate volunteering being volunteered to prayNot that I think Lewis will clear up all of my misconceptions with this book, but I d really love to get some clarification here What exactly is prayer Why should we do it If we re praying for God s will to happen, why in the world should we pray anyway Can God s will be thwarted When I ask f I am very, very curious about this one I have so many questions and confusions about prayer, with the result being that I don t feel very good at it and I hate volunteering being volunteered...
