From the publisher:

For the first time ever, these seven essential volumes by C. S. Lewis are available in a single edition. This remarkable book presents the classic works Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, Miracles, A Grief Observed, and Lewis's prophetic examination of universal values, The Abolition of Man. Beautiful and timeless, this is a vital collection by one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century. Lewis reached a vast audience during his lifetime, and books such as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters continue to be regarded as among the best spiritual writing of all time. With his uncanny grasp of human nature, Lewis offers a refreshing antidote to the modern world's consumerism and moral relativism. This new edition of his most celebrated books highlights Lewis's compassion for humanity and his relevance for the twenty-first century.

Mere Christianity: an effective way of attempting to make a robust defense for the existence of God and many aspects of the faith that pose challenges to those who do not believe. The influence of this book on modern Evangelicalism is evident by how often it is quoted.

The Screwtape Letters: An interesting reversal of expectations, hearing from the "dark side" and considering Jesus as the "Enemy." To consider the attack from the other side leads to a lot of insights and questions, but one has to wonder how productive the method is, and whether we're learning more about Screwtape or Lewis in the endeavor.

Miracles: An excellent systematic discussion, for believer and unbeliever alike, regarding the natural and what would be deemed the miraculous and the difficulties that are posed by an outright rejection of the miraculous. The defense of the miraculous in the life of Jesus based on the Incarnation is excellent as well.

The Great Divorce: a compelling, thought-provoking allegory of heaven and hell and a place in-between. A great catalyst for thought regarding people's ultimate fate and why it is as it is.

The Problem of Pain: An analysis of theodicy and the reason for pain, approached both through standard Christian apologetics as well as the universal human condition.

A Grief Observed: Lewis' visceral, no-holds-barred description of his internal turmoil after the death of his wife. As a personal testimony to the grief process it is quite useful for anyone.

The Abolition of Man: ostensibly a review of a textbook for children but ultimately a critique of science and reason disconnected from what Lewis calls the "Tao" or the natural law and the bankruptcy of such a philosophy.

On the whole, a good compendium of Lewis' materials. Worth reading. ( )

Clive Staples Lewis, better known as C. S. Lewis was one of the most influential Christian thinkers of all time. Whether through symbolism in the Great Divorce, biting satire in the Screwtape Letters, or unflinching logic in Mere Christianity his brilliance shows through clearly. "The Complete C. S. Lewis Signature Classics" contains his seven most popular works - Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, Miracles, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, A Grief Observed, and The Abolition of Man. While I read many of these years ago as a young Christian and college student this is the first compendium that I have reviewed.
