    About "C.S. Lewis"

    1. C.S. Lewis

      Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this nameIVE 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 was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 He was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement He wrote than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.Lewis was married to poet Joy Davidman.


    1. Glorious, but awful in parts Finished it again in 2016, and it is still the same Lewis has an uncanny ability to edify me and appall me simultaneously.

    2. Some of my favorite things about this wonderful little book by my favorite author 1 Right away, he takes on the difficult, hard to stomach psalms, the ones about such things as dashing the Babylonian babies against the stones Hard stuff I m sure I would have avoided it 2 This quote But of course these conjectures as to why God does what He does are probably of no value than my dog s ideas of what I am up to when I sit and read 3 And this quote What we see when we think we are looking into the d [...]

    3. Lewis is often unfairly placed at the helm of Christian apologetics In fact, if you hear two intelligent people debating the merits of Christianity, it will probably be only a matter of seconds before one of them is refrencing Lewis Lewis apologetic works Mere Christianity, Miracles are attempts to rationalize his beliefs to himself and to any who will listen they are not the authority on Christian theology and scholarship that they are made out to be Lewis usually outlines his shortcomings in t [...]

    4. An English Professor s Thoughts on the Psalms20 February 2014 I would have to say that the thing that I appreciated the most about this book was that Lewis opened it by saying that he was not writing this book as a theologian, since by his own admission he is not a theologian, but rather that he is writing this book as a normal person, and even in saying that he is suggesting that he is not the colossus of English literature that he actually is The second point is that in writing he actually wri [...]

    5. 5% Done UPDATEI m 5% done with Reflections on the Psalms I never ever stopped to think before about the difference between judges in Old Testament times versus judges in our very modern times We expect impartiality, no graft, and so forth Our system is so different from the OT Jewish system that it is no wonder we need mental adjustment before comprehending why their view of God s judgment is so much joyous than our own Completely different POV Fascinating.25% Done UPDATEI found myself looking [...]

    6. This book has a refreshing honesty and candor Lewis immediately states that this writing is not scholarly, definitive, or all encompassing He writes as one simple Christian to another, seeking a better understanding by pondering problems he has discovered and sharing insights he has gained while reading the Psalms.Lewis writes about a variety of topics in the Psalms that strike him as significant First, he notes the difference in the Psalms s presentation of divine judgment and the Christian s u [...]

    7. The thing I love most about this little book is the speculative nature of it, which Lewis owns from the first sentence This is not a work of scholarship He s conjecturing based on his knowledge of ancient cultures and the context of the whole Bible I m not sure about some of his conclusions, but he isn t either He asks questions such as, did the inspired writers always know what they penned was inspired Do the psalmists ever sin with their words cursing their enemies, etc and if so, what use are [...]

    8. I took too long reading this, so felt a little disjointed at times I really enjoyed Lewis rambling thoughts and his humor I have many quotes to think on This wasn t my favorite title of his, yet I think that has something to do with how I read it It s a shorter book and I think should be read in one or a few readings straight through to get the full gist of what he s saying.

    9. Lewis finds a niche for himself in these essays on the Psalms He is no Biblical expert, he says, but the commentaries of Biblical scholars often fail to consider the questions of the average reader of the Psalms, questions that Lewis himself has So Lewis writes his own thoughts in hopes of comparing notes with other students like himself Of course, as one reviewer has already pointed out, there are hardly other students like the brilliant Lewis.How can someone who is a sinner himself ask so conf [...]

    10. Full of great insights, of course, but nothing hit me as being particularly awe inspiring I should stop reading Lewis books as audiobooks, I don t get as much out of them One day I ll need to go back and review this.

    11. Paradigm shift is a word I despise mostly because of its misuse in modern language Though, that is exactly what happened to me with Psalms after I read the book I finally saw them in their raw beauty The anger, the rage, the love, it s all unmasked, not altered Jewish poets were really something I must admit, and while reading the book it made me want to read the psalms than the book That s why I gave it 5 stars This book actually encourages you to cope with the hard language and the obvious em [...]

    12. A very good approach, I think Understanding the problems, world, and issues of the writers of the Psalms is key to understanding a lot of the troublesome parts of the Book and any book, really, is better understood by knowing the context in which it was written Lewis comments on allegory and prefiguration were also welcome, as modern critical theory seems to deny the ability of seeing things on multiple levels at once More is required to have a full understanding the work I m sure Lewis would ag [...]

    13. This book presents Lewis about as far as he gets from the Fundamentalist interpretation of the Scripture Lewis treats the Psalms much as he would treat any ancient text with great respect but without any sense that they are than an ancient text of the writings and songs of devout people who worship God but worship Him in a certain amount of ignorance.First of all, for readers coming out of Fundamentalism, this is still a great book, because Lewis definitely knows the Psalms that he is discussin [...]

    14. Much good in here, but some things that might, for instance, cause Jeeves to raise an eyebrow The first chapters cause the most furrowing of the brow Lewis understanding of how Scripture came to be emphasizes too much the role of man in writing and thus human error and caprice and too little of the Holy Spirit s guidance incidently, I think Reformed Christians sometimes make the opposite error emphasizing the Holy Spirit to the exclusion of any human medium I think Lewis always did better in his [...]

    15. Lewis the higher critic Dare I say the heretic I kept hoping I would find one chapter in this book to embrace, but the entire volume turned out to be reflections of a C S Lewis I had not anticipated To his credit, Lewis introduces the book by stating that he is no scholar, no Hebraist, he also says no higher critic, but that I take as a technicality since he certainly employs higher critical reasoning throughout , but rather one unlearned writing for the unlearned Of course the fact is that C S [...]

    16. Some chapters were really good most were just average.The two chapters to be sure and read are Nature A Word about Praising This quote is worth the price of the book, however I had never noticed that all enjoyment spontaneously overflows into praise unless sometimes even if shyness or the fear of boring others is deliberately brought in to check it The world rings with praise lovers praising their mistresses, readers their favorite poet, walkers praising the countryside, player praising their fa [...]

    17. In my quest of reading in historical generational jaunts, I moved from the 21st century The Case for the Real Jesus to the mid twentieth century with C.S Lewis s Reflections On the Psalms I ve read Lewis s works of fiction and nonfiction which includeMere Christianity ,The Pilgrim s Regress , and all of theNarnia Chronicles , so I m familiar with his writing style.I must say at the outset that this book is one of my least favorite books by Lewis He is not in any way a theologian even in the most [...]

    18. C S Lewis wrote about 60 years ago but I still feel as if he is an extremely important and relevant conversation partner for evangelicals My annoyance is that I don t think evangelicals really read him except to confirm what they already believe C S Lewis was not really an evangelical in the sense that most today use the term certainly not a fundamentalist That being said, I think he anticipates some of the fault lines then future and that we d do well to listen to him on those areas that he see [...]

    19. Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth Prov 24 17 Where we find a difficulty we may always expect that a discovery awaits us The Law is undefiled , the Law gives light, it is clean and everlasting, it is sweet No one can improve on this and nothing can fully admit us to the old Jewish feeling about the Law luminous, severe, disinfectant, exultant It leads into the larger question whether the great evil of our civil life is not the fact that there [...]

    20. It s funny that as I believer I had C.S.Lewis on such a high pedestal that I was completely unprepared to begin this book I was confronted with some of his opinions with regards to the book of Psalms, that I adamantly disagree with him about Even though he begins by saying this book is not about apologetics, but rather it s for the believer, I found myself having to stop and dig into what I really believed he was saying It was good to be challenged in my beliefs and I found the book interesting [...]

    21. I got little out of this work of Lewis the first time I read it several years ago, in fact it was my least favorite work of Lewis I decided I ought to revisit the book now that I ve matured a bit and I am glad I did I appreciated Lewis reflections on the Psalms, but most of all, in this short work, I was able to get a better glimpse of Lewis approach to scripture and how he understands it to be the Word of God When I originally read this, the good evangelical that I was, I wouldn t have been ope [...]

    22. C.S Lewis was no Evangelical and it is for that we like him, even at his worst Somehow, paradoxically Lewis can get me to like things I don t normally go for Here I got a lot of questions I want to work through because of the issues he raises Judgment in the Psalms I m afraid this really knocked down total depravity as we often frame it The Psalmist says, quite frankly, that give sentence with me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and according to the innocency that is in me 7 8 On the one h [...]

    23. Clive Staples Lewis is one of the most popular Christian writers of the twentieth century He is better known as C.S Lewis and is the author of such works as Mere Christianity, Screwtape Letters, and the Narnia series In Reflections on the Psalms Lewis takes a look at this great book of scripture, and strives to help the unlearned discover the meaning of the book This can be seen in the opening paragraph of the introduction In it Lewis writes, This is not a work of scholarship I am no Hebraist, n [...]

    24. When one begins reading the book Reflections on the Psalms, by CS Lewis, one reads the author s initial disclaimer that the book is not a serious work of theology Lewis notes that it is his rambling ideas and personal reflections that he explored in his own private devotions This is an important caution he gave his readers, as he knew that some may take his words for the best interpretation, and he feared that often this would be a spiritual error for them.That said, he did have some expertise t [...]

    25. Synopsis Lewis opens the introductory chapter of this book with the statement that it is not a work of scholarship but simply the thoughts to which I found myself driven in reading the Psalms He then gives a brief history and analysis of the Psalms, the main point of which is that they are poems and must be read as such in order to be understood, followed by an explanation of the primary poetic characteristic of the Psalms parallelism.The next eight chapters address recurrent ideas or phrases in [...]

    26. Let me start off by saying how much I absolutely love C.S Lewis He is arguably my favorite author of all time However, this may be my least favorite book of his I use the term book loosely because of how much it reads like an essay I think that is perhaps why it is my least favorite of his works It definitely has a treasury of valuable information like all of Lewis works It offers perspectives and explanations on multiple aspects found within the psalms, which is fitting since they are in essenc [...]

    27. I read Psalms and Proverbs and Isaiah a lot because they re strange and good So when Garon read some paragraphs from this in his sermon a few years ago I found this book and read it The parts Garon read were the best parts Also the bizarre final sentences We are so little reconciled to time that we are even astonished at it How he s grown we exclaim, How time flies as though the universal form of our experience were again and again a novelty It is as strange as if a fish were repeatedly surprise [...]
