Description


A repackaged edition of the revered author’s anthology featuring hundreds of selections from his writings, organized by the main themes of Christian faith.

C. S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—wrote widely on all the main themes of Christian faith: God, Jesus, the Trinity, Scripture, sin, evil, nature, sex, the Christian life, prayer, faith, compassion, guilt, and forgiveness. A Mind Awake includes hundreds of short excerpts, curated from the full range of his works and organized them by theme.

Useful as both a reference work and as a devotional resource, A Mind Awake contains hidden gems of wisdom that are provocative, whimsical, and insightful, and is an ideal introduction to this towering figure who has profoundly influenced modern Christianity.

About the Author


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.
