    A Grief Observed, C.S. Lewis A Grief Observed is a collection of C. S. Lewis's reflections on the experience of bereavement following the death of his wife, Joy Davidman, in The book was first published in under the pseudonym N.W. Clerk, as Lewis wished to avoid identification as the author/5. Drawing on C.S. Lewis’s broad corpus, both his beloved classics and his less well-known writings, Humphrey brings Lewis into conversation with Orthodox thinkers from the ancient past down to the present day, on subjects as diverse and challenging as the nature of reality, miracles, the ascetic life, the atonement, the last things, and the mystery of male and female.

    What is Lewis saying, in the book as a whole, about human and divine love? Over the course of The Screwtape Letters, the state of the patient's soul fluctuates as he experiences a conversion, doubt, dangerous friendships, war, love, and finally, in death, oneness with God. What major strategies does Screwtape use to tempt the patient into.   C. S. Lewis may seem like an odd subject for study when it comes to the theology and practice of worship. He was neither a clergyman nor a professional theologian. And though he wrote wisely and winsomely on a wide range of subjects related to the Christian life, he devoted relatively little attention to ecclesiology, liturgy, music, and corporate worship.

    C. S. Lewis is a thinker much treasured by many Orthodox. Edith Humphrey’s clear, joyful, and accessible book brings Lewis into conversation with Orthodox thinkers and reveals many consistently Orthodox strands in the thought of this immensely popular Christian apologist. C. S. Lewis. Clive Staples Lewis (born ) in Belfast, Northern Ireland, died Novem ), commonly referred to as C. S. Lewis, was a renowned British author and adopted the name "Jack," which is how he was known to his friends and acquaintances. He is known for his work on medieval literature and for his Christian apologetics and fiction, especially The Chronicles of Narnia.
