Letters to an American Lady

letterstoanamericanLetters to an American Lady by C.S. Lewis, 4/5

If it is possible for my admiration of C.S. Lewis to increase any more, then it has done so through reading this collection of his letters, written over a span of thirteen years, in response to a needy old lady who, far from being his intellectual equal, seemed to be somewhat shallow and quite focused on her own numerous troubles.  The graciousness, care, wisdom and kindness with which he writes can only come from God and are perhaps an even more powerful witness to me of God’s transforming power than anything more intellectual that Lewis could have written.

[Why I read it: given to me as a birthday present by my parents.]
