Lewis' autobiographical conversion story, "Surprised by Joy," tells a true tale of a modern man who loses his faith and eventually reasons his way back to an acceptance of Christianity. Not choosing God as a last alternative or as a way out of an emotional crisis, his thoughtful path to the ultimate answer serves as an honest and inspiring story for his reader's.In "Reflections on the Psalms, " C.S. Lewis brings wisdom, sophistication and reference to his discussion of this popular book of the Bible, exploring the relevance of the Psalms to contemporary life. He next turns to a description of the many faces of Love in "The Four Loves." There are four basic kinds of human love: affection; friendship; erotic love; and the love of God, and each has certain possibilities and problems. Yet, Lewis recommends the risks that accompany the rewards, since "hell is the only place outside of heaven where we can be safe from the dangers of love."

Finally meditations appropriate for everyday of the Christian year are from a wide range of Lewis' writings, they are designed to make the cycle of the Church year a timeless and refreshingly new spiritual experience. As Lewis once wrote, "Joy is the serious business of heaven, " and that spiritual joy, faith and love are celebrated in the writings contained in this special collection.
