Late October is a time for devils and goblins, horror movies, tricks, and treats. If you’re a Lewis reader, you may spend time in The Screwtape Letters as a way to usher in All Hallow’s Eve, as well as the more important, All Souls’ Day. I picked up the masterfully annotated …

Disguised in a conversation between devils, apropos to the season at hand, is Lewis’s advice on humor. If we take Screwtape’s advice as the antithesis of what we ought to do, which is certainly Lewis’s point, we’ll discover several truths about a light-footed way to approach (and not approach) the …

The Practical Side: Patriotism

It would be plausible that any writer who fought in World War I and lived through World War II would have something to say about nation-building. Should a Christian find some personal identity in one’s country? I found two occasions where Lewis talks about this practical issue. One occasion is a letter …

The Practical Side: Occupation vs. Vocation

You may think C.S. Lewis’s writings only offer an intellectual approach to faith, one that certainly employs a creative vision, but is often stuck too far in the clouds. I would argue that such an approach, bathed in imagination, actually becomes the legs that everyday, practical faith actually walk on and …

C. S. Lewis would be among the first to run clear away from a Christian message that promises God’s comfort without the reality of sacrifice. Through history, from the beginning of the Christian Church through today’s plethora of options, some preachers have chosen to emphasize the more acceptable, tolerable, comfortable …

By Tim Scheiderer – In 1951, Winston Churchill and the Conservative Party regained control of the prime-ministership and Parliament. A few weeks after the election, the Prime Minister’s office wrote C.S. Lewis indicating the Prime Minister would like to bestow upon Lewis the honorary title, “Commander of the British Empire.” …

Do you have your summer reading list put together? We certainly encourage you to read Lewis in whatever format you choose. But you might also want to read a book that was in Lewis’s library–a book that influenced him.

As you know, Lewis wrote poetry throughout his life. Many of these works are collected in the volume simply called “Poems.” In addition, it’s helpful to note that his first book, Spirits in Bondage: A Cycle of Lyrics (1919), was a work of poetry, though it would be years before he would …

The Old Testament speaks of a “chosen people.” It’s a label that sounds exclusive, and our modern minds find it abrasive. “Democrats by birth and education,” Lewis says in Miracles, “we should prefer to think that all nations and individuals start level in the search for God, or even that …
