    Great book if you want to hear more C.S.Lewis

    What made the experience of listening to C. S. Lewis the most enjoyable?

    The content of this book is comprised of C.S. Lewis’ lectures, sermons, magazine articles, etc. and I believe written based on the assumption each respective audience was well educated. One result of this appeared to allow him to freely use quotes in their original language. Given the nature of its content, the reading by Ralph Cosham was so superb that I really felt I was listening to Mr. Lewis speak. Mr. Cosham’s accent, inflection, rhythm, intonation, emphasis, and pronunciation, especially of when applied to quotes in a foreign language were remarkable.

    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Cosham’s accent, inflection, rhythm, intonation, emphasis, and pronunciation, especially of when applied to quotes in a foreign language were remarkable. He brought Mr. Lewis to life in the presentation and made listening truly enjoyable.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. it was easily broken into its various parts, given the nature of the compilation of writings.

    A THINKING PERSON'S COLLECTION

    Very interesting material. You really have to listen to Mr Lewis, unlike other author's, or you will find yourself wondering what he is talking about. Recommend even though some of the material in this collection I've already purchased in shorter collections. The only real problem I had with this book is that I had to listen to it on my computer because Mr. Cosham's voice is so low I had a hard time hearing him on my kindle fire.

    All You'll Ever Need As Far As Lewis' Essays Go

    What made the experience of listening to C. S. Lewis the most enjoyable?

    Lewis' fine mind, even though I disagree with him as an Atheist.

    What did you like best about this story?

    See the above comment.

    Have you listened to any of Ralph Cosham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. It was another Lewis audiobook, I think. He is a consistently excellent reader.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it is *way* too long to do that.

    Any additional comments?

    C. S. Lewis is the greatest Christian apologist of the 20th Century.... hell, of *any* century. Whether you're a Christian who agrees with him or an Atheist like me, you'll appreciate his great intellect and fine use of the English language.

    The narration and collection were excellent

    If you are a C.S. Lewis fan or simple a fan of philosophical thought, this collection is most excellent. Lewis covers such a wide range of issues and does it so well. The narration was a bit slow, but the style was superb.

    Treasure Trove of CSLewis Literary Genius

    What did you love best about C. S. Lewis?

    Clarifies philosophical/scientific/theological reasonings, logical conclusions, ponderings of the Great Minds of all ages

    What was one of the most memorable moments of C. S. Lewis?

    There are many - a MOST memorable manifesting one of CSL's significant contributions is his revealing a deep study encompassing thoughtful insights regarding literary-affectiveness-relationships on rmoral-behevior attendant to scripturally-based ordinations. This is a one-Hour+ Chapter 10 of 136 in the Essay Collection edited by Lesley Walmsley and read by Ralph Cosham.

    The subject is very important to the concerns of those believers in THE WORD who would educate and be educated in secular setting, home-school setting, and for that matter any non-ordained scriptural stimulus. The chapter has Huge implications directly related to the universe of God's people..the eternal Church and its greatest enemies!

    What about Ralph Cosham’s performance did you like?

    seamless accurate and astoundingly non-biased performance throughout

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    not practical ... needs absorption over time and often many patient repetitive listenings.

    lewis

    Where does C. S. Lewis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    this is a great purchase. there is a ton of material and on a variety of different topics. the reader is fine. it would likely be best enjoyed by a person who has already experienced c.s. lewis in his other more traditional works, one of his (nonfiction) books. its a great supplement of diverse opinions from lewis for fans already familiar with his writing.

    39 Hours of Joy

    Herewith Audible delivers a jewel of Christian Apologetics right to your device. This collection of essays includes topics that are and others that are not to find in C.S. Lewis' books. Clearly Christianity has not become a hopeless case, after listening to this audiobook or reading/ hearing Lewis' other works, the complete opposite appears to be the truth. Decades of misconceptions and deceptions make it easy to believe, that faith in the christian god is as silly as belief in Santa Clause; a childish dream to please our hearts without any rational substance. Utilising elaborate speech and foolproof imagery the author addresses both intellectual people and laymen alike. Even though these texts were written half a century ago, they prove to be timeless and provide magnificent guidance concerning your daily/spiritual life. Furthermore you get the opportunity to scatter doubts that you have regarding scripture and christian doctrines, perhaps forcing you to revise some of your previous beliefs.

    If you are a christian or someone who is willing to listen to profound arguments revealing once more the validity of the Bible and the christian faith in our lives today, behold and get this audiobook.
