Weight of Glory & Other Addresses

Weight of Glory & Other Addresses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selected from sermons delivered by C.S. Lewis during World War II, these nine addresses show the beloved author and theologian bringing hope and courage in a time of great doubt. "The Weight of Glory", considered by many to be Lewis's finest sermon of all, is an incomparable explication of virtue, goodness, desire, and glory. Also included are "Transposition," "On Forgiveness," "Why I Am Not a Pacifist," and "Learning in War-Time," in which Lewis presents his compassionate vision of Christianity in language that is both lucid and compelling.

Table of Contents

The weight of glory — Learning in war-time — Why I am not a pacifist — Transposition — Is theology poetry? — The inner ring — Membership — On forgiveness — A slip of the tongue.
