C.S Lewis: A Life Remembered

 

C.S. Lewis is one of the greatest Christian thinkers in the modern era.  He has long been a favorite of mine.  On November 2, 1963, Lewis went to be with God, but his legacy continues through his books.  Click here to read this great blog on Lewis' life by DESIRING GOD

If someone was to ask me which titles to read, I would recommend in order (Click title to order):

 

Mere Christianity 

The Problem of Pain 

The Abolition of Man 

The Screwtape Letters 

The Chronicles of Narnia (Read them to your kids) 

 

“Silence” by Shusaku Endo

 

 

The paragraph below is from Relevantmagazine.com:

This 1966 novel follows two Portugeuese Jesuit priests as they travel to a country hostile to their religion. Eventually captured, they watch their Christian peers lay down their lives for their faith and bear witness to unimaginable cruelties that test their own beliefs. The brutality and cruelty explored in the book is controversial and Sebastião Rodrigues (based on the historical Italian figure Giuseppe Chiara), one of the Jesuit priests, is challenged with the idea of recanting his faith for the sake of ending someone else’s suffering. This book explores the depths of humanity when we’re confronted with the most unimaginable circumstances.

 

This book is being made into a movie by Martin Scorcese.  While it is too early for me (Jason) to recommend the movie, it will be something I will keep my eye on.
