Few writers have inspired more readers than author C. S. Lewis. Famous for his Narnia series as well as his captivating adult classics such as Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce, Lewis had a gift for writing clear, succinct, and thoughtful observations on how to live a truly good life. This book showcases the amazing lucidity and precision of Lewis’s thought. Orgazined from A-Z, it includes entries on such important subjects as: prayer, love, faith, virtue, greed, lust, church, the Trinity, creeds, doctrine, hell, heaven, miracles, suffering, grief, story, and joy. Drawn from many works, it is both a wonderful introduction to Lewis’s thought and an insightful and wise book filled with words to live by. AMBITION: Ambition! We must be careful what we mean by it. If it means the desire to get ahead of other people - which is what I think it does mean - then it is bad. If it means simply wanting to do a thing well, then it is good. It isn’t wrong for an actor to want to act his part as well as it can possibly be acted, but the wish to have his name in bigger type than the other actors is a bad one. Read Less

    Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.
