Product Description

All but two of the essays here first appeared in newspapers and magazines, and although their subjects are wide ranging, they all share an infusion of C.S. Lewis' characteristic sanity and persuasiveness.

Publisher's Description

"Where God gives the gift, the ’foolishness of preaching’ is still mighty. But best of all is a team of two: one to deliver the preliminary intellectual barrage, and the other to follow up with a direct attack on the heart."

An inveterate scholar, throughout his lifetime C.S. Lewis wrote on any number of topics. While his most famous essays concern his thoughts on Christianity, he was also interested in literature, masculinity, domestic life, and war. In the nineteen essays collected in Present Concerns, he touches on all of these and more. Though wide-ranging, these essays all share one thing: C.S. Lewis’s characteristic pragmatism and persuasiveness. Many of the essays included were written between 1940 and 1945, and so pertinently reflect on the issues raised by World War II: democratic values, the need for a new chivalry, and the cynicism of the modern soldier, all of which remain relevant today.

"Lewis gives us permission to admit our own doubts, our own angers and anguishes, and to know that they are part of the soul's growth."—Madeleine L'Engle
