From the Back Cover
The Problem of Pain: Why must humanity suffer? In this elegant and thoughtful work, C.S. Lewis questions the pain and suffering that occur everyday and how this contrasts with the notion of a God that is both omnipotent and good---the answer to this critical theological problem is within these pages. Mere Christianity: Uncovers common ground upon which all those who have Christian faith can stand together. The Screwtape Letters: At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Great Divorce: C.S. Lewis takes us on a profound journey through both heaven and hell in this engaging allegorical tale. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis introduces us to supernatural beings who will change the way we think about good and evil. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe: C.S. Lewis's classic novel and Christian allegory about four children who find a magical path to the land of Narnia.
About the Author
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 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 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

The advantage of this particular set of recordings, is that they are done by real professional voice over artists and actors. Each book is narrated in only one voice. But that voice is well cast for that particular book.
There is no music underscore, sound effects, or other dramatic cues. But honestly, those things aren't needed because the actors reading the books do such a great job. And obviously, the books in and of themselves are also superb.
Also, these are audio cds, not MP3 cds. That means the sound quality is better, and they will play in any player.
Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended!
