This excellent book is probably the most difficult and dense of all Lewis's work that I've read. Its approach is philosophical, not biblical-exegetical, and it is not for the unprepared reader. While that unfortunately limits the range of people I can recommend it to, those unequipped to grapple with its metaphysics are less likely to struggle with the objections Lewis works to defeat. Some of his theological weakness also shows through in the book (viz., his comments on Jonah), but this is brief and almost completely obliterated by his characteristically stunning holistic view of God's work in the world. In this vein, the chapter on the glories of nature is particularly tremendous and stimulating.
For those looking for more, the series of letters published in Christianity Today between Douglas Wilson and Christopher Hitchens are illuminating and interesting (I can't link -- just google it).
