About this deal

He was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures. It's a fairly short and easy read, considering the subject matter, though not for those who are looking for an easy way out.

It takes time and thought or it's a waste of the money and time invested in obtaining the book in the first place. Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half convinced, for the good man who would like to be a Christian but finds his intellect getting in the way. But taking the race as a whole, they thought that the human idea of decent behaviour was obvious to everyone. He tries to argue that whereas “gentleman” once had wealth and class meaning, it now refers to behavior only, and the same is happening with the term “Christian.

And probably the most important thing in his book, or in any book for that matter, is that when I put it down, I was determined to be a better person, to fix up deficiencies in my life. Where one is confused about what it means to be a Christian, how one is saved and changed, and what it demands of the individual, Lewis explains what it means to become a son or daughter of God. Yet to some degree, these strains have always existed, even back to the time of the first Christians. For anyone not understanding what I mean by 'works-based repentance', it should be the assertion of every believe that is is by faith that you are saved.

The ultimate idea (though he recognised this was something for later generations and he would not live to see the glad day) was to murder every single Jew throughout the world, because in the very depths of his racist insanity he thought the Jews were Evil. Lewis had indeed through the power of the Holy Spirit, put on paper that feeling that I believe all people who are born again in Christ feel and experience. All I am saying is that I see those evangelists around (including those in television) who speak like they are the kings of the world or they have special personal covenant with God.As admirable as this novel is, he does preach a few beliefs and interpretations were common back then but are not shared with as many nowadays. In a 2013 article to Christianity Today, McGrath ranked it the first among the five books by Lewis he liked the most. In this book, he chronicles his journey from devout atheist to committed Christian, recounting each step with his original assumption, then recording his intellectual journey through each idea to it's end result. While many feel that Christians are fools who believe in fairy tales, he shows just how much sense Christianity makes to those who choose to follow it.
