-- 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."

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."
If you like Lewis you'll probably like this.
If you want meaty theology look somewhere else, as Lewis himself would be the first to admit, he is not a theologian.
