Comments Surprised by Joy/The Four Loves

  1. I wish I could describe accurately the enormous pleasure and insight this two books by C S Lewis had given to me.But, dear good reads family, let me begin by saying that this review include and encompass actually two books So, do you hear me I said and repeat two books, namely 1 surprised by joy 2 the four loves.First, surprised by joy dealt with C S Lewis life, and describes his development from an atheist to become a Christian Here Lewis writes about his surroundings, family and his experience [...]


  2. I could never have imagined that such an explicitly religious and Christian text could bring such insight, comfort, and delight to an unbeliever like me.


  3. I ve been transfixed, delighted, challenged and illuminated by C.S Lewis since I read the Narnia books as a kid My only caveat with this book would be that he was a man of his place and time with some of the prejudices of that place in time But in the end you cannot fault his honesty, the depth of his self examination or his faith He is proof, like Paul, that a good Christian is a thinking Christian if he or she strives to apply that rigor with love and honesty without self pity or pride to inwa [...]


  4. Surprised by joy was a fresh perspectivetype of writing from CS Lewis The Four Loves had a few passages that presented themselves to me in a clear, impactful way than the rest.


  5. One of the best One of my favorites.The best way to write about yourself, inmy opinion far better than strict autobiography or meandering memoir.Pick a through line, a theme, a thread thatthe main events of your life can be strung on, that leads the reader to God s work in your life most concisely This is exactly what Lewis doeshere so well.


  6. The memoirs of CS Lewis as told in Surprised by Joy provide an understanding the people and places from his childhood that one can see impacts his fictional writing Two themes that reoccur through his life involve reading the value of friendships Lewis early experience of joy sends him on a quest through his later years to find joy again bringing him to faith in God The Four Loves is a natural pairing with his memoirs I found Lewis thought process to be quite rambling, with many a bird walk He a [...]


  7. As with everything I ve read by Lewis, there were many moments of such beautifully expressed clarity that really smacked of truth But than anything else I ve read of his,The Four Loveshad so many insufferable descriptions of women that I wanted to put the book down many times It was infuriating that almost every time he talked about my sex, it was in context of stupidity, frivolity, pettiness, vanity, or just plain foolishness Oh the other hand, every desirable or Christian trait was framed in [...]


  8. The biography was thorough and interesting though his obvious love of understanding and explaining all his changes in his system of beliefs were tiresome at times, I was surprised many times on how he saw and interpreted the world of his youth The Four Loves is something I wish I had read earlier for in defines precisely how love seems to work on this world and how it points us to the love of God.


  9. Slow, but an interesting read I liked reading about Lewis s spiritual journey and the connections he made to his readings on mythology The Four Loves was based much on religion than psychology like I originally thought, which I guess shouldn t have been a surprise, but it was still an interesting book.


  10. Another attempt at both books would be beneficial for me What I m gathering from reading the beginning of The Four Loves is that there are different types of love I m not remembering what I read in Surprised by Joy.
