Together in one special volume, selections from the best of beloved bestselling author C. S. Lewis’s classic works for readers contemplating the "grand miracle" of Jesus’s resurrection.

Preparing for Easter is a concise, handy companion for the faithful of all Christian traditions and the curious to help them deepen their knowledge and consideration of this holy season—a time of reflection as we consider Jesus’s sacrifice and his joyous rise from the dead.

Carefully curated, each selection in Preparing for Easter draws on a major theme in Lewis’s writings on the Christian life, as well as others that consider why we can have confident faith in what happened on the cross.

C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis, "Jack" to his intimates, was born on November 29, 1898 in Belfast, Ireland.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtful and thought-provoking A good selection out of Lewis' abundant writings of non-fiction, poetry, fiction, personal missives. Readings begin on 'Wednesday' of 'Week One' and continue through the days of Lent (only days of the week, not dated calendar days, are specified). Each piece is given a short title, and two scripture readings are suggested for those who wish to read more on any particular day. The presentation is lovely; a lot of care in preparation of this book is evident. These are devotionals which engage the imaginative and 'thinking function' perhaps more than the 'feeling function' that many such works tend to do. But this is Lewis' style. (We surely need both sorts of devotion.) There are no redundant sentences: you must follow and integrate each concept before continuing on to the next in order to appreciate his ideas most fully. (You may disagree with occasional thoughts presented---but then, this is why we read, why we think, imagine, feel; this is connection, relationship across time and space.) Last but not least, the book can serve as a good introduction to Lewis and his work.
