C.S. Lewis has inspired generations of children with his "Chronicles of Narnia", seven classic stories in which magic meets reality and good triumphs over evil. But he wrote more than 30 books, most designed to inspire an adult readership, and became justly renowned as one of the most spiritual writers of his day. The "C.S. Lewis Signature Classics" series has taken seven of these non-fiction works and presented them in a boxed set. The titles featured in this set include "The Problem of Pain" and his comic satire "The Screwtape Letters".
