    C.S. Lewis on Prayer

    I am a long time C.S. Lewis fan, but somehow I missed reading this book over the years. I enjoyed this book immensely and found it both inspiring and entertaining. Lewis used his characteristic wit and down to earth manner to explain his views on prayer. His conversational tone made it easy to read and understand.

    Refreshing

    This book is very refreshing. I found myself reading long passages to friends who seemed as encouraged as I was at what Lewis wrote.
    Lewis writes from the "blue-collar" view. He expresses his own difficulties and gives fresh perspectives. I found it very encouraging and , yes, it has helped my prayer life.

    Lewis' Belief in Purgatory Revealed

    C.S. Lewis here reveals great insights into the life of prayer. This window into his soul reveals a man who centered his life on Jesus Christ and on converting his heart more and more to the Heart of the Redeemer. This belief in conversion culminated in his belief that 'our souls demand purgatory.' This is a beautiful testimony to Lewis and shows his confident trust in the one who created him and called him to Himself. So many know Lewis the apologist, this book introduces one to Lewis in the depths of his heart.

    Thought Provoking!

    C.S. Lewis, born in Ireland and educated at Oxford, has written over 30 books, including science fiction and children¿s tales. He converted to Christianity in the early 1930s, and many of his writings are strongly flavored by his Christian beliefs. In Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, C.S. Lewis gives us a glimpse into his musings on communication between man and God. Not a traditional book, but instead in the form of a collection of correspondence from Lewis to a fictitious friend Malcolm, Letters allows us to be incredibly intimate with Lewis, and to use his thoughts as a springboard for our own. Lewis remarks, ¿¿ however badly needed a good book on prayer is, I shall never try to write it.¿ He did not try to write a good book on prayer, but none the less, this is exactly what we have. A book full of images, meaning and impressions that allow us to try to expand our own thinking on something that we often do without any recollection. Recommended for adults who are exploring their faith and looking for a challenging read. Give it as a gift to a loved one or as a gift to yourself, to help you examine your own prayer habits.
