Summary
Known as the twentieth century's most influential Christian writer, C.S. Lewis has stirred millions of readers through his probing insights, passionate arguments, and provocative questions about God, love, life, and death. Gathered from the mass of his published works--including The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, The Four Loves, and God in the Dock--as well as from letters, essays, and less familiar writings, this compendium contains a cross section of Lewis's finest work.--From publisher description
