gilt titles spine; the original (& larger) edition of this volume containing 12 of Lewis' well known Christian titles; "The Four Loves (1960) is based on the scripts for four radio talks broadcast in the United States on the four Greek words for love Storge, Philia, Eros and Agape. Mere Christianity (1952) - the best known and acclaimed of Lewis's theological works originated in four series of radio broadcasts which he gave in 1941-1944. The Problem of Pain (1940) is his first 'straight' work of Christian apologetics. Prayer: Letters to Malcolm (1964) was Lewis's last book in which he corresponds with an imaginary friend on various aspects of prayer. In his Reflections on the Psalms (1958) Lewis shares thoughts on the Psalms which he knew almost by heart through daily attendance at his college chapel. In The Pilgrim's Regress (1933), Lewis's first prose work, he explains in allegory the elusive experience he calls Joy and its part in his conversion. In The Screwtape Letters (1942) an elderly devil writes advising a young devil, Wormwood, who is attempting to procure the soul of a young man; the short piece Screwtape Proposes a Toast (1959) presents Screwtape addressing the annual dinner of the Tempter's Training College for young Devils. Till We have Faces (1956) described by Lewis as the 'favourite of all my books' retells and interprets the story of Cupid and Psyche. The Great Divorce (1945) tells of an imaginary journey from Hell to the borders of Heaven. Surprised by Joy (1955) recounts the story of Lewis's boyhood, schooling and early manhood and how he passed 'from Atheism to Christianity.' In Miracles (1947) Lewis gives a closely-reasoned defence of the supernatural and of miracles of the Bible in particular." 'as new' in unclipped D/J. with no faults; 1382 pages.
