Have we been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us? In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis looks at the curriculum of the English prep school and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature.

In The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis's classic vision of the Afterworld, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English 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 some significant realizations about the nature of good and evil.

    " Very cleverly argued, and has whet my appetite to reread "That Hideous Strength". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 eunjin27 | 2/10/2014

    " Again... my intellect fell short of Lewis it seems...some of his ideas were way over my head. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misty Lynne | 2/10/2014

    " I would like to hear anyone try to refute Lewis's moral reasoning! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/6/2014

    " I found this very difficult to work through - maybe I was distracted - but after my thoughts were accustomed to his style of writing, it became easier and easier. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 1/20/2014

    " This is a mind-blowing book. Will change your opinion of CS Lewis - he's what some would call a genius, disregarding his children's literature fame, and this will make you think. I could not have read this except in a class for college, so if you are in high school you should probably wait, but if you want something "collegiate" (no idea if i'm using that term correctly) or "academic" or simply amazing, you should probably read this. Will be difficult for some, but worth it nonetheless. Important - this is a lecture, not a story. Bear that in mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam Talbott | 1/19/2014

    " I had to read it three times to understand it, but Lewis nails what's wrong with Western civ. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan | 1/19/2014

    " There were so many more pearls left waiting to be said. Too short is my only complaint. This would normally be 5 stars but I'm comparing Lewis to himself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Magen | 12/20/2013

    " Wow. This is heady. I think I started to get it towards the end :) I will have to get a copy and do some highlighting because I really like the topic and generally agree with him. He was a brilliant man. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 3/7/2012

    " I didn't finish reading this one. It went too detailed for me. Maybe it shows my lack of refinement, but it never caught me into the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbi | 3/7/2012

    " Once again C.S. Lewis has given me a great deal to think about, and lots of notes to take while I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 9/2/2011

    " I believe in his "Tao". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthony | 9/2/2010

    " Not an easy read. A display of Lewis's keen intellect and deep insight into humanity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse Broussard | 2/4/2010

    " Read with caution (step lightly over the heresies), but definitely read. Chilling prophecy of modernity to post-modernity. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 6/28/2009

    " Had to read for a Moral Issues in Education class. Would not read by choice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny Stockton | 3/28/2009

    " This book was very intellectual and somewhat over my head. But still an excellent book for Lewis that really makes you think hard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renjie | 10/1/2008

    " The reduction of Man to what is merely rational or natural destroys his humanity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/1/2007

    " Not a typical Lewis--it's about education. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 2/8/2006

    " This is his social philosophy book, different than his religious and fictional works but interesting none the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luke Landry | 12/8/2005

    " Not the best book I have ever read by Lewis, but thought provoking nevertheless. "

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer 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 English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis 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 the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent PlanetThe Four LovesThe Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
