An atheist until he was 30, Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. 

He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.

C. S. Lewis was the most popular and best-selling theologian of the entire Twentieth Century, an amazing fact considering that technically, he wasn't a Theologian at all, but an Oxford Professor of English Medieval and Renaissance literature. 

His books include  The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy series and his science fiction Space Trilogy.  Both series are must reading for all Christians interested in these genres.  His most famous book among non-Christians is The Screwtape Letters. __________________

Wise and Candid Reflections from C. S. Lewis on the Virtues and Dangers of Love

In this remarkable recording, C. S. Lewis shows why millions of readers have acclaimed him the gretest spokesman for Christianity in the twentieth century.  

In a resonant, baritone voice, Lewis explores the nature of the four Greek words that are translated love in English.

  • Storge (affection).

  • Philia (friendship)

  • Eros (erotic love)

  • Agape (selfless love)

But instead of giving us a dry, theological treatise, Lewis makes the subject extremely personal and practical by showing us how easily natural loves can go wrong and pollute our relationships. 

...the solution---Godlike agape love... 

He shows that what we often tend to excuse as natural behavior is really selfish and destructive.

Lewis exposes these pitfalls in our loves in order to lead us to the solution---Godlike agape love  that God has for men and women and the kind we must develop and nurture in our relationships.

...vivid and often humorous illustrations.

As in his writing, Lewis doesn't merely tell, he shows these loves in action with vivid and often humorous illustrations.  The images are so realistically drawn and so alive you are sure to recognize someone you know or live with---or maybe even yourself.

Tell others about Jesus like C. S. Lewis did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________________________
