Four Lesser-Known Works in the C.S. Lewis Collection

For a short time, the 30-volume C.S. Lewis collection is 30% off in Logos

The collection contains many of his most popular works, but it also includes some lesser-known titles and compilations that reveal corners of his writing career many may not be purvey to.

The Allegory of Love: A Study in Medieval Tradition
The Allegory of Love is a study in medieval tradition—the rise of both the sentiment called “courtly love” and of the allegorical method within which it developed in literature beginning in eleventh–century Languedoc through sixteenth-century England. Lewis devotes considerable attention to The Romance of the Rose and The Faerie Queene, and to such poets as Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower, and Thomas Usk.

Letters to an American Lady
J.R.R. Tolkein called Letters to an American Lady “Deeply interesting and very moving.” It is a collection of more than one hundred letters Lewis sent to a woman he had never met, but with whom he maintained a correspondence with for the rest of his life. The letters discuss topics as profound as the love of God and as frivolous as preferences in cats and reveal a man patiently offering encouragement and guidance to another Christian through the day–to–day joys and sorrows of ordinary life.

Words to Live By
Edited by Paul F. Ford, Words to Live By contains an unprecedented selection of Lewis’ writings, drawing from his most popular works, but also from his volumes of letters and his lesser-known essays and poems. His works are presented in accessible selections covering subjects from A to Z, including beauty, character, confession, doubt, family, holiness, and religion. Both a wonderful introduction to Lewis’ thinking and a wise and insightful guide to key topics in the Christian life, these are truly words to live by.

Yours, Jack: Spiritual Direction from C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis spent a good portion of each day corresponding with people via handwritten letters. Over his lifetime he wrote thousands of letters in which he offered his friends and acquaintances advice on the Christian life, giving away a bit of himself to each of these correspondents as he signed his notes with a heartfelt and familiar, “yours, Jack.” Most of these letters are currently only available in their entirety—a collection consisting of three hefty tomes. Edited by Paul F. Ford, Yours, Jack features the best inspirational readings and sage counsel culled from C.S. Lewis’ letters, offering an accessible look at this great author’s personal vision for the spiritual life.
