"The Grand Miracle" is one of the finest books I have read in many years. Always a fan of C. S. Lewis, I find that these essays are so clearly and beautifully written that the voice of C. S. Lewis is present in every page. Two of the chapters are presented in question and answer form. This gives the reader the opportunity to understand some of Lewis' views regarding Christianity in very simple and concise terms. It also gives you a glimpse into the motivations for his particular writing style. I loved the book and highly recommend it to anyone who loves Lewis.
