The problem of pain by C. S Lewis( Sound Recording )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
For centuries, Christians have been tormented by one question above all: "If God is good and all powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?" Is there justice or wisdom to be won by suffering, or some reward beyond understanding? And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? Is the quantity and variety of suffering in the world inconsistent with, or evidence against, an omnipotent and perfectly loving God? C.S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature, free will, and the will of the divine

The abolition of man : and the great divorce by C. S Lewis( file )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide
In The abolition of man, C.S. Lewis asks if we have been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us. He examines the curriculum of the English prep school and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature. "St. Augustine," he explains, "defines virtue as ordo amoris, the ordinate condition of the affections in which every object is accorded that kind of degree of love which is appropriate to it. Aristotle says that the aim of education is to make the pupil like and dislike what he ought. When the age for reflective thought comes, the pupil who has been thus trained in 'ordinate affections' or 'just sentiments' will easily find the first principle in Ethics; but to the corrupt man they will never be visible at all and he can make no progress in that science." Yet the modern educational system around him, it seems, was bent on producing men without chests and
