    "This Series of Lewis Essays is the Most Complete"
    Any additional comments?

    At the time of this review, there are three Lewis essay collections available on audible, all read (very well) by Ralph Cosham.

    1. God in the Dock
    2. The Weight of Glory
    3. This series of essays taken from the printed Essay Collection & Other Short Pieces, which Audible has broken up into the nine sections of that book. This recording, Aspects of Faith, is just one of those nine.

    What I want to tell you is: all of them are good collections and worth having, but if you collect the nine titles described in #3 above, you will have every essay contained in the other two collections except for Rejoinder to Dr. Pittenger and Is Progress Possible. So, unless you are a completist, I would recommend simply collecting the nine in this series Also, this series of nine is better organized, skipping forward exactly one essay each time you click the forward button on your mp3 player or other interface. I believe God in the Dock jumps whole sections forward for each click.

    But if you want a short (a half dozen hours or so) introduction to some of the very best Lewis essays, try The Weight of Glory collection. In my opinion, every single essay in that collection is essential Lewis, even Why I Am Not a Pacifist, which, even if not as timely in theme, still contains such great prose and turns of thought that it deserves placement with the broader essays found there.

    In every case, don't miss the single essay, The Weight of Glory. That one's about the most exciting thing he ever wrote, in my opinion.
