/preview/03/82/72952_1.mp3 1. The Great Divorce - Unabridged Audiobook on CD C.S. Lewis ? Album Only

Product Description

In The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations and comes to significant realizations about the ultimate consequences of everyday behavior. This is the starting point for a profound meditation upon good and evil. If we insist on keeping Hell (or even Earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain event he smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell. Unabridged. Read by Robert Whitfield. 3 CDs. 3 hours.

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.

    This work was excellent.

    I found it interesting that the author put forward the idea that there exists degrees, and levels of quality, to one's afterlife existence in these two destinations. Besides that, there is still work , bother, stuggle, and discomfort to be had in both places-- dependent on the extent to which one is bound to one's earthly personality, habits, etc.

    I appreciate d this lesson regarding the hereafter a great deal. While I never imagined anything like the presentation made, it somehow rang true.

    Very well done - you'll be pausing the CD to think about the truths and observations in this work. One of those great books that can be enjoyed quickly and lightly, or waded into for deep and life-changing material.

    I love the story that is told. However, I did not completely enjoy the speaker's reading of it (I did not like the some of the accents).However, I still would highly recommend this because it makes great listening during traffic jams and the like. Exercising our suspension of disbelief (e.g. bad accents), we can get lost in this wonderful recording.
