“He believed that such problems had at least essential answers and set out like a hound on the scent of a fox to find them. He liked answers better than questions.” – from the Preface C.S. Lewis believed in the absolute logic of faith; his books, letters, and essays demonstrated the immutability of religion in his life. This collection mines their pages to bring out some of his essential lessons and to showcase the themes that provided the foundation for his philosophy: The Nature of Man, The Moral World, Sin, The Christian Commitment, Love and Sex, Hell and Heaven, and others. His preoccupations produced inspiring literature that was sometimes whimsical, often provocative, and always emotionally compelling. Here, then, is an anthology to return to again and again—whenever we most need wisdom, insight into how best to wrestle with a particular challenge, or simply the kind of unexpected perspective Lewis always provides. "Lewis’s remorseless pursuit of clarity, his intense moral concern, [and] the peculiar hue of myth, faerie, and Eden which informs all his work . . . these are here, and in proportion to how one would find them if one were to read every Lewis ever published." —New York Times Book Review "A comprehensive reminder of the wit, understanding, courage, principles, and prejudices of one of the great lay preachers of our time."—Times Literary Supplement C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Surprised by Joy.

These short writings from David Hoffmeister guide the mind into a deep and deliberate rest. "There is an experience that brings an end to all uncertainty and an end to all questions. The experience is Love. The experience of Love is Divinely Inspired and changelessly Eternal. Love does not come and go, or arise and fall like the sun, nor does it shine brightly only to fade and disappear for a time. Love is not personal or specific. It is impossible to Love something specific, for Love is Whole and knows no parts. Love is without an opposite, being Everything God creates forever. Divine Mind is God, is Love, is All." Sprinkled with delicate water color illustrations throughout, this eBook is a gift for the heart ... allow the mind to be gently bathed in the Light of Truth!

"There has been no end, and there appears no prospect of an end to the appeal to the people on their civil rights and privileges. The press teems with folios which are scattered many times a week, through the whole community, displaying to the American people the rights of man, and stimulating them to the extreme point of the demand. Let no one object to this work for which there are so many ready and active hands, if the Patriots of the periodical press will be the steady advocates of principles, instead of the vacillating organs and instruments of party zeal. It is grateful however to perceive an aspiring in the spirits of the people, for a higher liberty;--a liberty of the noblest character, which has no blood to shed in revolutionary battles; and no party warfare to maintain in its extension and establishment; a liberty which makes man Free on whatever soil he treads, and under whatever government he lives; and which, if by the favor of Providence, it should become as universal as the elective franchise would secure the civil liberty and the happiness of our country, and make the United States the example and the ornament of the human race. Every conscientious and careful Student in the common walks of life is a specimen of such a freedom--The freedom of the mind. If there had not been many such, our civil freedom would never have been either conceived or realised; and if it should be perverted or lost, it sill be because their number and worth, have not increased with the growth and the necessities of the country. The Lyceum, is a hall of patriotism for the union, and improvement; for the influence and increase of such freemen, which will do more for the cause of civil liberty, than the caucusses of party politics. For if its plans are carried into execution, if its designs prevail, it will produce a community, which the sophistry of party zeal will not long assail, because it cannot with its fickle light be forever exciting and misguiding them: over which ignorance and baseness would not dare to rule, even if such a people would construct a ladder for their ascent to the heights of office"--Preface.
