Selected from sermons delivered by C. S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. Addressing some of the most difficult issues we face in our day-to-day lives, Lewis’ ardent and timeless words provide an unparalleled path to greater spiritual understanding. “The Weight of Glory,” considered by many to be Lewis’ finest sermon of all, is an incomparable explication of virtue, goodness, desire, and glory. Also included are: “Transposition,” “On Forgiveness,” “Why I Am Not a Pacifist,” and “Learning in War-Time,” in which Lewis presents his compassionate vision of Christianity in language that is both lucid and compelling.

Listener Opinions

    " Lewis' literary bent toward Romanticism has never been as obvious as in the brilliant title essay, which is both artfully written and magnificently textured. After it, the other essays--although good enough in their own right--felt just a bit flat, containing only flashes of whatever special brilliance illumines "The Weight of Glory." "

    " C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors, and he is at his best when writing Christian apologetics. The title essay is an incredibly moving piece about what it means to be a human being. I also loved "On Learning in War Time." "
