C. S. Lewis here offers wisdom and lessons that illuminate our private dialogue with God-prayer-in this collection drawn from the breadth of his writings. The revered teacher and bestselling author of such classic Christian works as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis here offers wisdom and lessons that illuminate our private dialogue with God-prayer-in this collection drawn from the breadth of his writings. C. S. Lewis's insights on Christianity and his reflections on Christian life continue to guide us more than fifty years after his death. How to Pray showcases Lewis's enduring wisdom on prayer and its place in our daily lives. Cultivated from his many essays, articles, and letters, as well as his classic works, How to Pray provides practical wisdom and instruction to help readers nurture their spiritual beliefs and embrace prayer in all its forms. While many people would like to speak to God, they often don't know how to begin. Lewis guides them through the practice, illuminating the significance of prayer and why it is central to faith. A welcome addition to the C. S. Lewis canon, How to Pray offers a deeper understanding of our personal tradition of prayer, our faith, and what is means to be a Christian.
Special 65th Anniversary Edition One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, 'Mere Christianity' has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C.S. Lewis's legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, in which he set out simply to 'explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times'. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, Mere Christianity provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to absorb a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.
Die vier Pevensie-kinders sit nog ewe mismoedig op die stasie en wag vir die trein wat hulle moet terugneem skool toe, toe Lucy skielik 'n pluk voel. Dan voel Edmund dit ook, en 'n minuut later Susan en Peter ook. In 'n ommesientjie verdwyn die stasie en bevind die kinders hulle in 'n ruie woud langs die see, naby die bouval van wat vroeer hulle kasteel, Kair Paravel, was. Hulle is terug in die magiese land Narnia, waar hulle as konings en koninginne geheers het in Die leeu, die heks en die klerekas. Iets is egter nie pluis nie. Hulle eens majesteuese kasteel is 'n ruine en dis oral vreemd stil en leeg. Deur Troempels die dwerg leer hulle van die tragiese lot wat Narnia getref het: Burgeroorlog is besig om die land te verwoes en die dapper Prins Kaspian probeer moedig om sy regmatige koninkryk uit sy bose oom Miraz se kloue te red. Kaspian het egter hulp nodig en met Aslan se leiding aanvaar die kinders die uitdaging om Narnia weer 'n vrolike en vry land te maak.
Toe Sjasta uitvind hy’s nie regtig die arm visserman Arsjeesj se seun nie, is hy verras en selfs 'n bietjie verlig. Hy’t in elk geval nog nooit soos 'n Kalormeen gevoel nie. Dit beteken hy kan enigiemand wees! In sy wildste drome sou hy hom egter nie die verrassings en avonture kon voorstel wat op hom wag wanneer hy deur die pratende perd Bree oortuig word om Kalormen te verlaat en na die magiese koninkryk van Narnia te vertrek nie. Hulle reis is propvol gevaar en intrige: eers deur die bose stad Tasjbaan, dan verby grieselrige grafkelders van oerkonings en dan deur 'n skynbaar nimmereindigende woestyn tot by die hoe berge van Argenland. En wanneer Narnia reeds op die horison wink, besef Sjasta die grootste uitdaging le nog voor hom: “As jy dit opmors, gaan jy elke geveg in jou lewe opmors. Dis nou of nooit.”
'The Chronicles of Narnia' have enchanted millions of readers over the last fifty years and the magical events described in C.S. Lewis's immortal prose have left many a lasting memory. For here is a world where a witch decrees eternal winter; where there are more talking animals than people; and where battles are fought by Centaurs, Giants and Fauns.
In Die laaste geveg – die sewende en laaste aflewering in Die kronieke van Narnia – keer Jill en Eustace terug na Narnia om die magiese land te red van ondergang. Die slinkse aap Swendel het die donkie warboel verlei om hom met 'n leeuvel te vermom en die diere en dwerge te laat glo hy is die ware Aslan. Chaos dreig en oorlog tussen die Narniane en die Kalormene is onafwendbaar. Sal die kinders Narnia van ondergang kan red? Die laaste geveg is danksy Kobus Geldenhuys se uitmuntende vertaling nou vir die eerste keer in Afrikaans beskikbaar.
Net toe Jill Pole na die langste en goorste skoolkwartaal in haar lewe begin opsien, gebeur iets magies: Sy en Eustace Scrubb beland in Narnia! Aslan gee aan hulle vier tekens en 'n opdrag: om Prins Rilian, wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het, op te spoor en terug te bring na Kair Paravel. Ongelukkig is die kinders so meegevoer deur hulle nuwe omgewing dat die eerste drie tekens heeltemal by hulle verbygaan. Sal hulle die vierde teken ook mis – of sal hulle daarin slaag om Prins Rilian met sy sterwende vader te herenig? Die silwer stoel, briljant vertaal deur Kobus Geldenhuys, verskyn hiermee vir die heel eerste keer in Afrikaans.
Alhoewel die eerste vier boeke in die wereldbekende Kronieke van Narnia met verloop van tyd drupsgewys en deur verskillende uitgewers in Afrikaans vertaal is, is Protea Boekhuis se publikasie van Die vaart van die dagbreker 'n eerste: Dis nie net die vyfde titel in die reeks se debuut in Afrikaans nie, maar ook die eerste van Kobus Geldenhuys se uitmuntende vertalings wat uiteindelik al sewe boeke in die reeks onder die Protea-vaandel sal verenig. In Die vaart van die dagbreker beland Edmund en Lucy Pevensie saam met hulle mislike nefie Eustace Scrubb aan boord van die dagbreker – die skip waarmee Prins Kaspian onderweg is na die eensame eilande op soek na die sewe lords van Narnia wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het. Op die gevaarlike reis trotseer hulle allerlei uitdagings– maar die droom om tot by Aslan se land aan die einde van die wereld te seil bly groter as enige vrees vir die onbekende.

This edition is complete with cover and interior art by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes.

But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years.

Tydens een van die koudste en natste somers in jare, besluit Polly en Digory om die soldervloer van hulle ou ry verdiepinghuise te gaan verken. Versigtig klouter hulle oor die dakbalke en al met die lang tonnel af wat hulle blyplekke aan die lee huis langsaan verbind. Digory is seker hulle gaan 'n bende gevaarlike misdadigers daar betrap en dan 'n beloning kry. As 'n huis al vir soveel jare leeg staan, moet daar tog een of ander geheim wees, nie waar nie? Dis daarom amper 'n teleurstelling toe hulle maar net op Digory se oom Andrew in 'n geheime werkkamer afkom. Maar dan laat 'n wilde eksperiment vir Polly soos mis voor die son verdwyn – en ontaard die vervelige somer in 'n naelbytavontuur.
`You can only find out the rights and wrongs by Reasoning - never by being rude about your opponent's psychology.' For C. S. Lewis, reason and logic are the sensible way to approach faith and ethics. Much of the 20th century's ills are caused by ill-founded beliefs and opinions. Lewis's original approach remains as vital today as ever. He is able to take the most convoluted subject, turn it side on and shed bright illumination on it. To be able to see along things rather than at them - just like a beam of sunlight that invades the darkness of a toolshed - is, to Lewis, the way to understanding. Written variously between 1940 and 1962, this collection of essays represents the best of Lewis's considerable wisdom on the great ethical and theological concerns of the day.
Toe die Tweede Wereldoorlog uitbreek, word Edmund, Peter, Susan en Lucy uit Londen weggegestuur om by 'n ou familievriend op die Engelse platteland te gaan woon. Met die dat ou professor Kirke skynbaar heeltemal in sy eie wereld leef, kan die kinders ongestoord na hulle eie vermaak soek in sy yslike ou huis in die middel van nerens. Eers is daar die opwinding van die huis verken: lang gange, eindelose spaarkamers, vertrek op vertrek vol boeke en dan een enorme kamer waarin daar niks behalwe 'n groot klerekas staan nie. Dit, dink Lucy, verdien nadere ondersoek. Terwyl sy nog haar pad deur die rye jasse binne-in die kas oopdruk, voel sy meteens iets sag en poeierig en yskoud op haar val en ontdek dat sy in die middel van 'n woud staan. Dis aand, en daar’s sneeu onder haar voete en sneeuvlokkies dwarrel deur die lug. Lucy het sowaar in die vreemde towerwereld van Narnia beland. Die tweede avontuur in die opwindende Kronieke van Narnia ¬– meesterlik vertaal deur Kobus Geldenhuys.

A milestone in the history of popular theology, 'The Screwtape Letters' is an iconic classic on spiritual warfare and the power of the devil. This profound and striking narrative takes the form of a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior colleague engaged in his first mission on earth trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is 'lost' to the young devil. Dedicated to Lewis's friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, 'The Screwtape Letters' is a timeless classic on spiritual conflict and the invisible realities which are part of our religious experience.

For many years an atheist, C. S. Lewis vividly describes the spiritual quest that convinced him of the truth and reality of Christianity, in his famous autobiography. "In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God ... perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." Thus Lewis describes memorably the crisis of his conversion. `Surprised by Joy' reveals both that crisis and its momentous conclusion that would determine the shape of Lewis's entire life.
