Using allegoric narrative, stinging satire, reasoned insight, and his signature wealth of compassion, C.S. Lewis wrote highly entertaining and deeply illuminating essays and books of popular theology that revealed the shared beliefs of Christianity and explored the nature of good and evil. This collection of four of his most imaginative and intelligent works displays a scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh and confirms C.S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our or any age.

Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Greg5 Stars Out Of 5Another way to digest some great materialOctober 23, 2014GregQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Although not intended to be an audio theater production, these CDs provide a great method to digest Lewis' material while driving or doing other things. They are well read and easy to listen to while thinking through what is heard. It is very easy to rewind select material for a repeat reading. I travel a lot and wish more of Lewis' works were in this format.
The only personal drawback to this item is that I already have audio versions of two of the works and enjoy them. This means I can lend out my duplicates with less fear of them not being returned.

He was surprised (not expecting it!) but delighted! This was something he would not have bought himself. He thought the gift box was a great presentation and started listening to the CD's on his first day back to work after Christmas.
Dorian Travers5 Stars Out Of 5September 20, 2010Dorian TraversAs you would expect from CS Lewis the narative is very captivating, and the tapes amazingly well read. I have several taped Bibles and some of them are hard to listen to because the reading is poor. Not so with these tapes. Excellent value.
