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 Mere Christianity, 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 one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.
This edition was very nice too.
This anthology was edited/assembled by the late C. S. Lewis, and contains many of his favorite passages from the published works and sermons of George MacDonald.
Don't get me wrong, the quotes are great, but it just doesn't really give you an idea of who Goerge MacDonald is, and what his writing is like.
This is a favorite--long-loved and held in esteem by my philosopher husband
and me. We are always glad to find copies in print. Read more

I like to grab this book now and again and just open it at random. There isn't a place where you won't learn something or be moved by MacDonald's huge heart and mind.Published 4 months ago by _scm_1

Profound wisdom from the "master" of C.S. Lewis. Though Lewis does little writing in this book, his dissecting and categorizing of MacDonald's writings is worthy of a book, and... Read morePublished 20 months ago by D. Jenkins
