    Further Up and Further In

    I should recommend Lewis¿s Miracles to any who are truly capable of maintaining a sincere and unbiased forbearance in understanding the arguments in support of a supernatural God. Once the mind is finally liberated from all such ridiculously wobbly notions of subjectivity, I then encourage you with the swiftness of lightning to tackle this book and cherish its deeply esoteric merits. To be sure, it has Lewis¿s usual witty words tied around meanings that cause an 'awakening' to stir within the being. You nervously sit back, your heart quivering, not being able to help but ask your self, ¿So, God, are you really there? I couldn't see you...¿ No doubt, the Joy that is left with you at the closing of pages drapes you with something marvelous, lifting you up to something you¿ve always wished to be--and so much more. And, fortunately, you realize that God is not something of wishful-thinking, but more so, as C. S. Lewis had once said, ¿of thoughtful wishing!¿ But I ask you, readers, not to believe Miracles a bunch of evangelizing rubbish! It was not meant to be. Reason with your self, that is what Lewis had desired. To fully grasp this book, you have to be able to open your heart and mind, and then surely all things will become quite clear. A marvelous book, indeed.

    really interesting and beneficial book

    There are times when I read books that are basically "theological" in nature because I am a preacher, but I do not normally review them. However, this book on Miracles by the famed English writer C. S. Lewis, best known for his Chronicles of Narnia, has more application than just to theological studies. First, it deserves a prominent place in the field of evidences or apologetics, especially since Lewis had once been an agnostic and basically thought and studied his way out of agnosticism into faith. Second, our children need to be taught critical thinking skills, and since some understanding of logic is necessary in developing critical thinking skills, this book can be helpful because the arguments in it are built on a pre-eminently logical basis. Therefore, it would make an wonderful resource for high school students studying this topic.
    There are a couple of warnings. The book is not an easy read. Although there is quite a bit of sardonic, English humor which some people could miss, many people might consider the book a bit dry. In any event, you cannot whiz through this book while watching television, listening to the radio, carrying on a conversation, or whatever. It requires one's complete attention to understand it, but I believe it is well worth the time and effort. Secondly, you may not necessarily agree with all of Lewis's conclusions. He indicated his opinion that the miracles of the Old Testament fall into the category of "myth," although He argued that God gave the Hebrews these myths as a foreshadowing of the true miracles of Christ, and then said, "My present view...is tentative and liable to any amount of correction."
    Perhaps he eventually received that correction. Also, he apparently accepted some degree of theistic evolution, with references to man's pre-human ancestors the "recapitulation" of our ancestors' traits while in the womb. In addition, he used an illustration that makes reference to "wine" (and he definitely means the alcoholic kind) as being a gift from God for our benefit. And in the last couple of chapters before the epilogue, there are several speculations which may well be within the realm of possibility but which not every Bible believer may accept. Aside from these things, this is a really interesting and beneficial book.

    This book was an extremely interesting read. Lewis's literary style parallels that of Mere Chriatianity by the use of frequent analogies and logical deduction. In arguing the plausibility of miracles and the supernatural realm he also provides support for Christianity itself. Parts of the book were confusing but overall Lewis was successfully able to answer deep theological questions in a way that readers at all levels of religious belief could comprehend. I would suggest this book to all those questioning the possibility of miracles and to those who may be seeking further defense or support of their Christian faith.

    As a Christian I was moved by this rational and unwavering accou

    As a Christian I was moved by this rational and unwavering account of the super naturalist versus the naturalist and how these two opposites co-exist. C.S. Lewis in Miracles provides both Christian and non-Christian a deep understanding through reason and proof after proof that science and the supernatural God can both exist. If you are a Christian your belief will only be strengthened and if you are a non-believer you will not be one long after reading his mind changing book. Read it slow, saver every minute. This is a book from a man that was way beyond his time. A man who was a gift from the hand of God. Carl Hardy, a Catholic Christian

    A must read for Christians and non-Christians alike

    C.S. Lewis writes with possibly the greatest insight of any author in recent time. This is a classic that will make everyone think. A must read.

    Dungeon

    To the left of the White Witch's throne is a spiraling set of stairs. Walk down them. As you walk you will see all kinds of doors along the walls. Each door leads to a chamber full of stone statues. At the very bottom of the stairs is a wide metal gate. Push the doors open & enter the dungeon. Here is where all the miserable peoplewho are afraid of the Witch (but will tell her nothing), are kept. Hear them moan from the icy cold.
