Weekend words from C.S. Lewis

"faith, hope, love" each word written on a card, strung on a line with clothes pins

 

 

quote from A Grief Observed
shared from the C.S. Lewis official Facebook Page

 

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day.” 

He is perhaps best known for his book “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and the others in the Chronicles of Narnia series.

His book Mere Christianity is considered  one of the most powerful apologetics of the Christian faith.

 

Lewis wrote A Grief Observed after his wife died just a few years after their marriage. In it he reflects on life, death and faith .

 

“This is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings.” (quoted from Amazon review- these are all  affiliate links which pay a commission if used from this blog. )

 

 

 

 

Weekend words is a regular feature of watercress words. At the end of the work week we take a break from exploring strictly medical topics to consider words of faith, hope and love from the Bible and other carefully selected writings.
