The Weight of Glory, C.S. Lewis

Since its writing in 1949, The Weight of Glory has challenged Christ followers to face and address some of the most difficult issues we face in our day-to-day lives. C. S. Lewis's ardent and timeless words provide an unparalleled path to greater spiritual understanding. Considered by many to be his most moving address, The Weight of Glory extols a compassionate vision of Christianity and includes real and compelling discussions on forgiveness and faith.

“There are no ordinary people,” Lewis concludes.  "You have never talked to a mere mortal.  Nations, cultures, arts, civilization––these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.  But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, exploit.  Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself,” he continues, “your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.”

In this book, C. S. Lewis asks us to attend to a proper theology of the human person.  He challenges us with the awesome reality of the human person, bearers of the very image of God.
