I really enjoyed reading this book. I love the writings of C.S. Lewis and this was a great book, full of his works. It is great how Joe Rigney features these writings and connects them all together. I highly recommend it! 🙂

“If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God, it will make in the end no difference what you have chosen instead.” - C.S. Lewis

About:

C. S. Lewis excelled at plumbing the depths of the human heart, both the good and the bad, the beautiful and the corrupt. From science fiction and fantasy to essays, letters, and works of apologetics, Lewis has offered a wealth of insight into how to live the Christian life.

In this book, Rigney explores the center of Lewis’s vision for the Christian life―the personal encounter between the human self and the living God. In prayer, in the church, in the imagination, in our natural loves, in our pleasures and our sorrows, God brings us into his presence so that we can become fully human: alive, free, and whole, transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.
