Editorial Reviews

Review

-- The Chicago Tribune
"This volume will be of special interest to people whose philosophy runs to futility, determinism, and atheism."

-- Moody Monthly
"Christian Reflections brings C. S. Lewis's genius to a ready public. His fidelity to eternal verities comes like a clean, refreshing breeze to air increasingly polluted by 'dialogues' of the unsure."

-- Review and Expositor
"Refreshing originality. . . A book that will both stimulate and tantalize."

-- The Living Church
"Christian Reflections is in the style of a truly great scholar with a deep love and understanding of the classics, an extraordinary narrative power and clarity, and a precision in logic that goes to the heart of the matter under discussion. . . This book is a veritable jewel."

-- Christian Home and School
"One would be challenged to find better companionship than that of C. S. Lewis in exploring the relationship of Christianity and culture from a Christian perspective. . . Few people will be able to read this book without having to acknowledge that their spiritual and intellectual lives have been enriched."

Format: Paperback
Lewis's shorter works were generally originally composed as speeches or as articles for periodicals. Various sets of them were collected and published in book form both during his life and after his death. Trying to determine what works are in what collections is difficult - most works appear in more than one collection, some works appear under more than one title, and some collections appear under more than one title.
To aid readers, in this review I've listed the works in this collection, with notes indicating other collections they have appeared in. Where a work has appeared under more than one title, I give both titles separated by a slash.

23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By David Graham on June 18, 1998
Format: Paperback
These fourteen essays (with an introduction by Walter Hooper) are about a variety of topics related to Christianity, but not necessarily ABOUT Christianity. My favorite of the bunch is "Modern Theology and Biblical Criticism", a thumping rejoinder to those whose misapplication of form and redaction criticism (e.g. Bultmann or Schweitzer or Dibelius) to the gospels prevents them from making sound judgments about the life of Christ. His essay "Petitionary Prayer: A Problem Without an Answer" is brutally honest, ending as it does in a questioning uncertainty about the matter, while his essay "The Psalms" is helpful in guiding the reader to an understanding of how to view that portion of scripture. Some essays may strike one reader's fancy less than another's, but there is plenty here for most people to find AT LEAST one or two they greatly enjoy. I liked all of them and found most of them very helpful to my own reflections on life.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love everything by C. S. Lewis, and am trying to read through everything he has ever written (that I can find, anyway). This is a book of collected philosophical and theological essays, most of which appear to be transcripts or manuscripts from lectures and talks he gave at various places and various times during his career.

The essays range from the place of Christianity within literature and culture, all the way to talking about Lewis' distaste for church music and 20th Century European Historical Criticism.

Most of these essays were more technical than other essays from Lewis, and most readers will probably find the content and ideas a little too advanced for their taste. I got bored by several of the essays, especially since the questions which were being asked during the life of C. S. Lewis are not really being asked any longer.

Nevertheless, I did find his essays on Church Music, the Psalms, Petitionary Prayer, Biblical Criticism, and The Seeing Eye (about the possibility of aliens on other planets) to be insightful and "classic C. S. Lewis."

Format: Paperback
Just the essay on church music makes the book a worthy investment. It appears that Lewis was not a personal fan of much church music that he experienced. However, he saw the purpose of church music was to glorify God. His insight about true spirituality of the learned and unlearned church musician is priceless. Here he provides a challange for all to consider the essence of our spiritual music offered to God.

Format: Paperback
In this age where serious thought is scorned, this work by Lewis shows just how far we've fallen. His clear, concise theology shines through in everything he writes, and this collection is no exception. Even in his response to his critics, Lewis demonstrates a careful consideration that deserves praise.
