A most valuable resource for understanding the mind and writings of C.S. Lewis—something like a systematic applied theology.

Synopsis: C.S. Lewis excelled at plumbing the depths of the human heart, both the good and the bad, the beautiful and the corrupt. From science fiction and fantasy to essays, letters, and works of apologetics, Lewis has offered a wealth of insight into how to live the Christian life.

In this book, Rigney explores the center of Lewis’s vision for the Christian life—the personal encounter between the human self and the living God. In prayer, in the church, in the imagination, in our natural loves, in our pleasures and our sorrows, God brings us into his presence so that we can become fully human: alive, free, and whole, transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.

My Thoughts: This is a book that takes a look into the life of C.S. Lewis; author of many books that readers have come to love. This is a wonderful book for those who enjoy reading C.S. Lewis' books as it gives an idea to the reader the thoughts and insights in his writings.

This is a good book for those who want to become acquainted with Mr. Lewis and will certainly want to go back and read his books again.

Iam certain that readers will enjoy this book.

Great book - basic premise of the book is that our enjoyment of the things of earth - God's gifts - when properly received do not compete with our enjoyment of the greatest treasure, God Himself, but instead enhance and intensify our joy in Him. If you have spent time thinking about Christian Hedonism you don't want to miss reading this.
