C.S. Lewis' The Weight of Glory contains nine sermons delivered by Lewis during World War II. These discourses were given in order to offer guidance during a time of spiritual uncertainty and unrest. Lewis addresses some of the trying questions that Christians face on a daily basis. He faces issues such as eternity, devotion, the desire for acceptance, and even controversies such as pacifism and forgiveness. In doing so, he eloquently reflects his high intelligence and education. His viewpoints are earnestly argued, causing his opinion to be piercing to the heart and soul. His in-depth justification of his stated opinions, along with his clever speech, causes the book to be difficult to comprehend. At times, it seems as though he has lost sight of who will be studying this work. Although this is true, his philosophical and soul-wrenching points cause the reader to dig deep and seek truth within themselves. It is also important to know that these sermons were originally spoken to college students in England, so his speech justifiable reflects his audience. Lewis' successfully hooks the reader and pulls them in by sharing his enlightened and profound observations on both the spiritual and secular world, giving applicable advice on how to deal with the various struggles confronted throughout his sermons. I would highly recommend this book to any Christian who thirsts for revelation and conviction in the course of their walk with the Lord.
