According to C.S. Lewis, "joy is the serious business of heaven", and attaining that joy is the business of the Christian. Lewis reveals his own approach to Christianity and faith in the devotional readings of The Joyful Christian.

A nice collection of Lewis' thoughts on various matters, but I recommend getting the books themselves.

127 readings selected from 15 of Lewis's theological works.

the joyful christian is a collection of some of lewis' beliefs towards certain issues. 127 to be exact. i suppose it would be better to just read lewis' books and get his views from those which would naturally be more thorough and would possibly give explantions and reasons for his specific views. not recommended.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684823772, Paperback)

C.S. Lewis, himself a convert, wrote of being "surprised by joy" when he discovered his belief in Jesus Christ. In these 127 devotional readings, selected from Lewis's many works on faith and spirituality, Christians everywhere can share in the joy of this master theologian as he discusses topics ranging from the nature of prayer and good works to psychoanalysis and fascism. In The Joyful Christian, Lewis offers inspiration for all those who hunger and thirst after joy.
