Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, C.S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that "at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice." This recording also includes Lewis's erudite essay "The Abolition of Man", in which he eloquently argues for a better standard of public education that would include reading and writing lessons grounded in moral reasoning

Carole Seddon and her bohemian neighbor Jude find that even the cultured can be crass when it comes to murder. The life of noted man of letters Esmond Chadleigh--poet, children₂s author, essayist, fantasist--is celebrated in the halls of Bracketts House. However, despite the efforts of the house's trustees, most of Chadleigh's work remains out of print, leaving the once famous literary figure out of sight and out of mind and Bracketts out of funds. An American literature professor with a big interest in Chadleigh--and an even bigger bankroll from the university where she's tenured--can keep Bracketts running, in exchange for assistance on her Chadleigh biography. But the mistrustful trustees are afraid the biographer is only interested in rooting out the skeletons in Chadleigh's closet--especially after uncovering one in his garden. Now, Carole and Jude must risk tarnishing the sterling reputation of a beloved author to learn whether his sword was mightier than his pen

Out of the silent planet by C. S Lewis( file )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 218 libraries worldwide
Out of the silent planet is the first novel from the Cosmic Trilogy, considered to be C.S. Lewis's chief contribution to the science fiction genre. The trilogy concerns Dr. Ransom, a linguist, who, like Christ, was offered a ransom for mankind. The first two novels are planetary romances with elements of medieval mythology. Each planet is seen as having a tutelary spirit; those of the other planets are both good and accessible, while that of Earth is fallen, twisted and not known directly by most humans. The story is powerfully imagined, and the effects of lesser gravity on Martian plant and animal life is vividly rendered
