An anthology of more than 100 selections from the writings of an influential and popular English theologian and author. Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day.

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.
