Having a unique insight into humanity and culture, Lewis helps his readers see religion with fresh eyes, making Christianity clear and understandable. This book is a collection of radio broadcasts from the Second World War that were presented by Lewis to bring new meaning into the lives of disheartened and fearful adults. However dated these talks, the deep and rich truths of the gospel presented through them still stand today and remind readers of the important things in life. Recognising the great struggles of the Christian life, Lewis encourages his readers to investigate the power of the gospel and entrust their lives to Jesus. This book is not just insightful, but also encouraging and exciting.
“The Christianity Lewis espouses is humane, but not easy: it asks us to recognise that the great religious struggle is not fought on a spectacular battleground, but within the ordinary human heart, when every morning we awake and feel the pressures of the day crowding in on us, and we must decide what sort of immortals we wish to be.” (Kathleen Norris, foreword)
