This is a powerful book! Like so many things in life, it gets better with age. I first read the book when I was in my twenties. It was good then, but is wonderful now. With experience comes understanding. This book has become a great comfort for me.
This book is about Clive and his relationship with God. God became my favorite character.
Geoffrey is a great reader. I listen to a lot of books, and I could listen to him all day. He is so good that you forget someone is reading to you!
I am an avid reader, but I am starting a new business and I don't get a lot of time to read anymore. Reading takes time. It is not an activity that you can take part in while "multi-tasking." For this reason, I love audiobooks.
Very good and was tempted to return the audio book but read a older review that the book get better the further you get into to it and it does.
Yes, it gives an attractive view of the christian beliefs.
This book helped renew a deep down sense of right, wrong and love for our Lord we all feel inside of us.
Yes, every year, as a reminder of the logic and grace given by Christ who died for me. C.S. Lewis is brilliant and as an atheist turned Christian, I find him to be a great apologetic. Thanks be to God for guiding him to share this with the world.
I have so many bookmarks, there is not one I can pin point. The first time I tried to read this and I found myself having to read it to myself and my husband out loud to follow it. He is brilliant. I finished it on the dock of my families lake house, and just like when I received the Holy Spirit, the world shifted once again. Beautifully lyrical. So, I now have listened to it and like to play it while I run. Especially early in the morning and just before sunrise.
no - take the time to think about each point.
May God bless each listener, believer or not, to come closer to Him and receive the gift of his mercy, grace, wisdom, guidance and righteousness.
In terms of spirituality, this book discusses many topics that I as a Christian face and never have answered. The arguments and logic he brings up, makes one really look at what they truely believe.
At no point did the book get boring, rather I needed to listen to chapters multiple times in order to somewhat grasp what it is that C.S. Lewis was talking about
It was a magnificent performance, and i wish he would have more books to narrate aswell.
Definitely not something you would listen to in one sitting, becuase the txt is so reach and has originallity and deep topics that really need to be meditated on.
For anyone reading this book, i suggest that you read 1-2 chapters at a time to be able to take some time to really digest what is being read. I willdefinitely re-listen to this book. A must read for all believers in Christ Jesus!!
The way C.S. Lewis distills seemingly complex topics down to their very core and is able to use simple examples and analogies to commonplace situations makes is logic both come to life and seem almost irrefutable.
I loved the fact that this book was not a case for religion nor does it show preference to any particular denomination. Similarly, CS Lewis doesn't intend to defend or promote Christianity relative to any other religion. He simply lays out the facts and outlines the logical conclusions that he reached on his route from Atheism to Christianity. At no point does he take a defensive position but continually presents a proactive and common sense approach that led him to becoming a Christian.
I was shaking my head and nodding in agreement throughout the book. It was a ton a fun to listen to and a great resource for Christians and non-Christians alike.
Maybe not. While I don't have much time to sit down and read, sometimes I wish I could highlight some of the wonderful points. There is bookmarking though, if you have a moment to reach down and click on it.
I don't know. It is like nothing I have ever read. CS Lewis thinks on levels above the general public.
Deep into the realm of possibilities and realities.
This is a fantastic thought provoking argument for the reality of Christianity
Excellent book and recording, but I would have liked shorter tracks so I could rewind smaller sections to review.
It's straightforward, unemotional approach to Christianity and how reasonable and sense able it is.
It was too stilted..almost like listening to a computer talk.
Having read it many years ago, it was good to hear it again though I wish the reader had sounded more human like.
This book is an excellent tool for anyone who doesn't want to go through life without a strong, logical foundation for their faith...or lack thereof. Be warned however that this was a book written by a single man in Mid Century England. Two references could be offensive, IF one chooses to be offended. I belong to one of the two demographics which are referred to in these remarks. I take the remarks for what they are, his opinion and the other an off-handed remark.
I suggest you look past it and build on YOUR relationship with God, or choose no relationship. He is not judging merely explaining his reasons for coming to a decision to believe after an adulthood as an atheist.
