I heard a phrase recently - "Do you want to learn from a great man, or from the sources from which the great man learned?" I am speaking about C.S. Lewis. Many people read the works that he wrote and recommend them. Now there is a book available to read "Selections from Writers Who Influenced His Spiritual Journey" compiled by James Stuart Bell and Anthony P Dawson called "From the Library of C.S. Lewis".
Sections of the books help a reader see inside different areas such as page 55, Chapter 4, I Will Seek You, Knowing God. Sir Thomas Aquinas, John Donne, Richard Hooker, Edward Young, George Herbert, Dorothy Sayers, Saint Augustine, George McDonald, Beowulf, Anicius Boethius and Thomas Traherne share short thoughts of knowing God.
I must confess that I have not read the book in entirety – as it is summer and we have been in the water just about every day – however, I have it on my side table next to my chair and read tid bits here and there and look forward to reading it this winter when the storms come.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book from Waterbrook Multnomah / Blogging For Books, in exchange for an honest review.
