Information on The Business of Heaven from the publisher:
The Church Year, as described by C. S. Lewis's infamous devil, Screwtape, is always "The Same Old Thing." In answer to this, Father Walter Hooper, editor of this edition, draws from the rich canon of Lewis's work and presents these eloquent, clear readings as meditations appropriate for every day of the Christian year. Each entry, other than those for saints' days and holy days, is given a title to set the theme, such as "Half-Hearted Creatures," "Two Kinds of Good and Bad," and "The Humblest Love." Hooper illuminates his belief that C. S. Lewis was "one of the most realistic Christians we are ever likely to meet" by choosing readings that explore faith and morality together with joy, which, as Lewis wrote, "is the serious business of Heaven."
Description of C.s. Lewis, author of The Business of Heaven:
Lewis's work is designed to make the cycle of the church year not "The Same Old Thing" as the infamous devil Screwtape described it, but, rather, a timely and refreshingly new spiritual experience.
