Drawn primarily from C. S. Lewis's classic works, this book provides dictionary-like entries on different virtues--prudence, chastity, faith, hope, charity, and so on. A nice summary presentation on something Lewis is famous for: clear, succinct, nonpreachy, erudite definitions of terms that have to do with what it means to live the good life. Even those who have already read the works from which these writings are drawn will enjoy this succinct collection of core concepts for the virtuous life.

His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include, The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity. Visit the C.S.
