Mere Christianity Report Abuse
One of Lewis' best-known works, this book clearly outlines the logical arguments for Christianity in an intellectual rather than emotional manner.

A Grief Observed Report Abuse
A raw and moving account of Lewis' struggle with grief after the death of his wife. Unlike most of his other non-fiction, which tends to be more logical, this book includes the intensely emotional writing that clearly demonstrates the depth of grief and love.

Screwtape Letters Report Abuse
A fascinating and imaginative look at Christianity from Satan's perspective. The book is full of wry humor that takes the reader off guard.

It's remarkable, C.S. Lewis forces the reader to look at temptations through a different perspective. One Saturday night a few months ago I was debating whether I should go to my college group bible study that night after work. By the end of the night I would have finished an 8 hour shift so I selfishly decided that if I was hungry I would go get some food, if I wasn't I would go to bible study. Regrettably, I ended up getting food and going home. Later that night I was reading where I left off on the Screwtape Letters and I came across a passage where a demon was talking about something along the lines of "the patient (human) has developed a horrible notion in his mind (the truth), if we don't suppress this now we'll lose him. Go and fill his mind with hunger, that ought to distract him." That hit me deep. C.S. Lewis gracefully bombards readers with relatable details like such that reveal our sins that we were initially blind to, thinking they weren't so bad. I wish I could read it again for the first time.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe Report Abuse
The second of the Chronicles of Narnia (the first being the Magician's Nephew) but the most well-known of the books, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a rich allegorical tale that skillfully weaves the theme of good versus evil through a wonderfully evocative, magical world filled with brilliantly developed characters. It's a pleasure to read for children and adults alike.

The Problem of Pain Report Abuse
Lewis' attempt to explain how a loving God could allow suffering, this book takes a very straightforward and honest look at pain, love, heaven, and God. This book proves that Lewis was not afraid to address very difficult topics.
