Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It is really a pleasure to be able to praise a book unreservedly, and that is just what I can do with The Problem of Pain.Gaurdian (London)
“The point about reading C. S. Lewis is that he makes you sure, whatever you believe, that religion accepted or rejected means something extremely serious, demanding the entire energy of the mind.” Harpers
“This is an incredibly lucid and unprejudiced work…Lewis’ treatise on suffering, read by [Simon Vance], is like listening to a very interesting, yet intellectually revered, friend talk about a thorny subject over a cup of tea.” Paradise
“While many of us naively wish that God had designed a ‘less glorious and less arduous destiny’ for his children, the fortune lies in Lewis’s inclination to set us straight with his charming wit and pious mind.” Amazon.com, editorial review
