Hooper illuminates his belief that C.S. Lewis was "one of the most realistic Christians we are ever likely to meet" by choosing readings that explore faith and morality with joy, which, as C.S. Lewis wrote, "is the serious business of Heaven."

In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewiss famous devil derides the Christian year as "The Same Old Thing." To combat this, Walter Hooper has drawn from Lewiss vast bibliography, accumulating short meditations that correspond to each day of the Christian calendar. Hooper has chosen passages that emphasize Lewis illuminatingly matter-of-fact approach to religion, with each entry focused on themes such as "Nearness to God," "Heaven and Sexuality," or "Two Kinds of Good and Bad." In addition to providing food for thought, these bite-sized excerpts facilitate a yearlong journey towards achieving the joy that Lewis wrote is "the serious business of heaven."
"The point about reading C. S. Lewis is that he makes you sure, whatever you believe, that religion accepted or rejected means something extremely serious, demanding the entire energy of the mind." Harpers
"A potent anthology." Los Angeles Times

As a primary devotional this could never stand in place of daily readings from scripture. But in some important respects it is an invaluable supplement, and in others is the best thing of its kind I have come across. For the convinced believer these writings are packed with ideas that will provide support, challenge, questions -- anything else you can think of that is wholesome, that points you towards Jesus. But the point that makes me say that in some important respects it is the best thing of its kind is this. I don't know anything that is quite so full of potential for the unconvinced, for the enquirer who wishes to understand what it means to be a Christian, for the needy person who is seeking the consolation seen in those who know the Lord Jesus Christ. As always with Lewis, doctrine is in its proper place, preaching is proclamation rather than preaching at, difficult subjects are addressed with directness and compassion -- and always, things point towards the Lord Jesus Christ.
