The classic Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis, the most important Christian writer of the 20th century, contains nine sermons delivered by Lewis during World War Two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Weight Of Glory Is CS Lewis Greatest Essay There are a number of essays/lectures in this book. "The Weight of Glory" one is put first and is generally considered by many to be a classic up there with the greatest Christian writings. I read that one from time to time to pick me up from time to time. There are others lectures and essays in this small book. Some topics might appeal to you. Others likely won't. I myself don't agree with everything Lewis says. Read it first at a Chapters or Chapters related store and then make a choice to buy it. Remember to read the first one "The Weight of Glory". I made the mistake of skimping over it a few times and didn't know that was a priceless gem for a long time!
