Product Description

In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, Lewis meditates on many puzzling questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God. Lewis considers practical and metaphysical aspects of prayer, such as when we pray and where. He questions why we seek to inform God in our prayers if He is omniscient, whether there is an ideal form of prayer, and which of our many selves we show to God while praying. The concluding letter contains provocative thoughts about "liberal Christians," the soul, and resurrection.

Publisher's Description

"We want to know not how we should pray if we were perfect but how we should pray being as we now are."

What are we doing when we pray? What is at the heart of this most intimate conversation, the dialogue between a person and God? How does prayer—its form, its regularity, its content, its insistence—shape who we are and how we believe? In this collection of letters from C. S. Lewis to a close friend, Malcolm, we see an intimate side of Lewis as he considers all aspects of prayer and how this singular ritual impacts the lives and souls of the faithful. With depth, wit, and intelligence, as well as his sincere sense of a continued spiritual journey, Lewis brings us closer to understanding the role of prayer in our lives and the ways in which we might better imagine our relationship with God.

"A beautifully executed and deeply moving little book." —Saturday Review

"[Lewis] is writing about a path that he had to find, and the reader feels not so much that he is listening to what C.S. Lewis has to say but that he is making his own search with a humorous, sensible friend beside him." —Times Literary Supplement

C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Surprised by Joy.

Editorial Reviews

"A beautifully executed and deeply moving little book." —Saturday Review

"[Lewis] is writing about a path that he had to find, and the reader feels not so much that he is listening to what C.S. Lewis has to say but that he is making his own search with a humorous, sensible friend beside him. That is writing that requires great literary skill … That this should be the last book that we shall have from C. S. Lewis is a matter of genuine regret."—Times Literary Supplement

"The unbeliever is likely to enjoy the book most for its shrewd asides…Opinions of this kind are expressed with the admirable directness and simplicity which characterized the style of this often indirect and highly complex man."—New Statesman

    Letters to Malcolm is a must read for any person, no matter their religious background. Lewis, writing on many issues that surround prayer, writes as a friend, discussing and sharing personal experiences and what he has learned with his fictional friend Malcolm. The letters are in an easy to read format and it amazes me that Malcolm is fictional because he seems so real!

    Lewis is a master at taking hard to understand concepts or questions and explaining them from his heart, in an easy to understand manner, as true heartfelt experiences and what he has learned through them that can benefit others. This is the last book that C.S. Lewis wrote and was published after his death. He starts with "corporate prayer" and also discusses liturgy used in services. He then goes into private prayer, both the practical as well as the metaphysical components of it. This part includes "when to pray and where, ready-made prayer, petitionary prayer, prayer as worship, penitential prayer, and prayer for the dead". He concludes with delving into aspects of the soul and the resurrection. Lewis presents all this and more through a very salient discussion and gives us much food for thought. Through his own mediations, Lewis is able to give us insights into many of the issues and questions that so many people struggle with.
