9781441762955: Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer

In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, C. S. Lewis meditates on many puzzling questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God. He considers practical and metaphysical aspects of prayer, such as when we pray and where we pray (private prayer, petitionary prayer, the Lord's Prayer, and other forms of prayer.) He questions why we seek to inform God in our prayers if He is omniscient, whether there is an ideal form of prayer, and which of our many selves we show to God while praying. The concluding letter contains provocative thoughts about ''liberal Christians'', the soul, and resurrection.

From the Back Cover:

Beloved Christian teacher C. S. Lewis once again communicates deep wisdom through story.

Through twenty-two letters between ficticious correspondents, Lewis shares his understanding of the role of prayer in our lives and the ways in which we might better imagine our relationship with God. “We have no non-religious experiences,” he writes, “only religious and irreligious.” With his trademark warmth and wit, Lewis challenges readers to revisit the power of prayer in our everyday lives in the final book before his death.
