Overview

C. S. Lewis's writings are prized for their genius at communication the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple, everyday language. Now this inspired collection of three Lewis bestsellers--complete in one volume--allows you to sample some of the best ideas and arguments of this engaging Christian writer.

The first book Lewis wrote after his conversion, The Pilgrim's Regress is the Bunyanesque allegory of John and his pursuit of a mysterious, sweet desire that leads him through adventures with Mr. Enlightenment, Mr. Mammon, Mother Kirk, and others. You'll trace Lewis's own journey to faith in this semi-autobiographical account of modern man's consuming search for spiritual fulfillment.

In two collections of shorter essays and letter, Christian Reflections and God in the Dock, you'll discover the wide scope of Lewis's interests--literature, science, theology, war, prayer, capital punishment, culture, and much, much more. Some of these pieces were written specifically for periodicals, others were read to societies in Oxford and Cambridge, still others were originally prepared as talks to diverse audiences. All, however, share Lewis's uniquely effective style and his tireless concern to relate basic--or "mere"--Christianity to every area of life.
