Book #49: Miracles by C.S. Lewis

Number of pages: 294

This is a book/essay that I read about five years ago, and reviewed previously.

It's a difficult book, mostly because of the language Lewis uses, but it feels like it is structured in a logical way, talking about the difference between the natural and superatural, and concepts such as pantheism.

There were some points raised that really got me thinking, like the observations made regarding the resurrection of Lazarus and just what had to happen for this miracle to occur. There are, not surprisingly, long chapters regarding Jesus' resurrection and His asension into Heaven.

It's one that you have to take your time with and not rush through too much, but I do find C.S. Lewis' writing style compelling.

Next book: Something Happened (Joseph Heller)
