Present Concerns

present concerns c.s. lewisPresent Concerns: A Compelling Collection of Timely, Journalistic Essays by C.S. Lewis, 4/5

The necessarily limited length of these articles means that Lewis doesn’t have time to fully develop and defend his opinions, but they are still a joy to read and cover a stimulating variety of topics (in addition to the ever-present subject of Christianity) such as history, philosophy, education, and morality.  Some of the essays have not aged well and some would be of little interest to the average reader, but overall they are a nice supplement to Lewis’ more in-depth works.

[Why I read it: It seems that just when I think I’ve read everything C.S. Lewis ever wrote, something else turns up.  I think I picked this unfamiliar title up at some used bookstore or other.]
