Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

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.

    Daily readings taken from Lewis' writings are aptly chosen by the well-known Lewis scholar Walter Hooper. 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. Excellent

    The portions well represent the thought being conveyed. The legnth of each days reading is enough to provoke thought without being overly time consuming. I look forward to opening the book to each days portion.
