The (Almost) Complete List of CS Lewis Books

Michael P. Clawson
 
Mere Christianity
Mere Christianity
"This essential texts sums up Lewis' approach to Christianity and provides an intellectual exemplar for the "thinking Christian""
The Complete Chronicles of Narnia
The Complete Chronicles of Narnia
"Some of the best fantasy ever written, and Lewis' best known works. These aren't just "children's" stories."
The Problem of Pain
The Problem of Pain
"Lewis' rational apologetic for why a loving God allows suffering. I love the quote "Pain is God's megaphone to rouse a deaf world.""
A Grief Observed
A Grief Observed
"This is Lewis' existential apologetic for the problem of suffering. It is a copy of his personal anguish and struggles after the death of his wife Joy."
Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold
Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold
"Lewis' best fiction. This retelling of the Cupid and Psyche myth is simply amazing."
The Weight of Glory
The Weight of Glory
"My favorite collection of Lewis essays. The title essay changed my philosophy of life and faith."
C. S. Lewis' Letters to Children
C. S. Lewis' Letters to Children
"A fun, light-hearted look at the softer side of Lewis. I love the fact that he never talked down to children. He treated them like real people with valid concerns."
The Abolition of Man
The Abolition of Man
"This is his most explicitly philosophical work, an attempt to show the necessity of the existence "absolute and universal values""
The Great Divorce
The Great Divorce
"Lewis uses the fiction of a tour bus ride from Hell to Heaven and back to show why "The gates of Hell are locked from the inside.""
The World's Last Night: And Other Essays
The World's Last Night: And Other Essays
"This a fun and random collection of Lewis essays. My favorite, "Religion & Rocketry", explores the theological implications of sentient life on other planets."
Present Concerns
Present Concerns
"Another random collection, this time dealing with more cultural issues of Lewis' day. Less relevant but still a good study of Lewisian thought."
The Screwtape Letters
The Screwtape Letters
"Letters from an elder demon (Screwtape) to his young apprentice (Wormwood) on how to go about tempting his human charge. What a concept for a book!"
The Four Loves
The Four Loves
"This book has a lot of practical and philosophical reflections on the variety of human affections that we lump under the English word "love"."
C. S. Lewis Space Trilogy
C. S. Lewis Space Trilogy
"Not so much sci-fi as brilliantly written stories with theological themes set in fantastic worlds."
Miracles
Miracles
"This is Lewis' "Treatise contra naturalism". He makes a very strong case for the rationality of a supernaturalist worldview."
God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics
God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics
"One of the best (and largest) collection of Lewis' essays"
Letters to an American Lady
Letters to an American Lady
"A collection of letters Lewis wrote over a long period of years to an American lady he never met. A good look at the "pastoral" Lewis."
Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life
Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life
"An autobiography of Lewis' conversion to Christianity and his experiences with the divinely given emotion of "Sehnsucht" (joy/desire/longing)"
C. S. Lewis On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature
C. S. Lewis On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature
"An interesting collection of various essays Lewis wrote on the topic of literature, fantasy, and children's stories. Includes Lewis' own review of the Lord of the Rings"
Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer
Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer
"Here the master apologist tackles some of the hardest questions we ask about prayer."
Studies in Words (Canto)
Studies in Words (Canto)
"Lewis loved words, and was big on being precise in the words one chose to express meaning. This is his informal analysis of how certain words change their meanings over time."
Reflections on the Psalms (Harvest Book)
Reflections on the Psalms (Harvest Book)
"This book changed my view of Scripture, its interpretation, and the doctrine of inerrancy. I highly recommend it."
The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature (Canto)
The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature (Canto)
"Still the standard text on Medieval & Renaissance literature. To prepare for this Lewis personally read every book written or translated in English during the 16th century."
A Preface to Paradise Lost
A Preface to Paradise Lost
"This book revolutionized the way scholars understood Milton's Paradise Lost. Lewis re-introduced the "radical" idea that God, not Satan, was Milton's intended hero."
Latin Letters of C.S. Lewis
Latin Letters of C.S. Lewis
"A posthumous collection of letters written between Lewis and an Italian priest (Latin was the only language they shared in common). A remarkable and unique look into Lewis' thought."
