Product Description

This Bookshelf Single is a written transcript of the original audio talk.

C. S. Lewis is loved by many Latter-day Saints who are intrigued by insights in his books that parallel LDS doctrines. In this inspiring presentation, S. Michael Wilcox discusses Lewis's perspectives on such topics as:

  • Our ability to become like God
  • The “divine homesickness” inside each of us that only God can satisfy
  • God's desire to pour happiness into the hollow of our souls
  • How to avoid today's “Turkish delights,” the obstacles to happiness that Satan puts in our path

You'll love this discussion about one of the greatest Christian writers by a gifted teacher and storyteller.

This talk on CD is a chance to sit at the feet of a master teacher and storyteller. Brother Wilcox's knowledge regarding C.S. Lewis' life and writings are full of insightful interpretations. His enthusiasm for his subject and his presentation style makes this talk worth owning. It has moments that are both spiritual and at times humorous. His many insightful teachings made me ponder long after listening. This is a talk I will listen to again and again. The cd was 160 min(2 discs) and I still wanted more!
