Summer readings...

Are you still looking for a good book to read this summer of 2009? Let me give you some suggestions:

1. The Abolition of Man by CS Lewis. One of Lewis' own favorites among his own works. For those who want the quickest route in being introduced to the man's thinking, it is also his shortest book, just sixty pages. It's a brilliant justification of his views on the ultimate destination of mankind without the Tao (natural law).

2. A Grief Observed by CS Lewis. Lewis attempts to coldly analyze his grief, and in the end he cannot. He simply expresses his grief without even attempting to gloss over it. It is his journal - and almost too personal - where you bear witness to Lewis' progress as he sloughs his way through the deep mire of sorrow and grief.his is the book that inspired the film Shadowlands.

3. Mere Christianity by CS Lewis. This book really explained the reasons that God must exist, and then moved on to easily describe the major beliefs of Christians, without leaving anyone out in the cold on what the key issues actually are. This book is perfect for the agnostic, the atheist, and even the Christian that wants to know the logical and simple reasons that C.S. Lewis came to be a Christian. Over and over, his words made me see even the simplest concepts of religion in a completely new light.
