In this final book written before his death, C. S. Lewis continue to challenge readers to revisit the power of prayer in our everyday lives.
Within twenty-two letters between fictitious correspondents, Lewis shares his understanding of the role of prayer in our lives and the ways in which we might better imagine our relationship with God. As with all his bestselling works, C.S. Lewis once again communicates deep wisdom through profound story.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.

Lewis’s many essays’ Saturday Review 'Splendid, glorious stuff, the product of a luminous and original mind, tough and honest in facing the agonizing questions raised inevitably by any consideration of prayer’ ” - The Church Times
”'He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.’” - Times Literary Supplement

”'Lewis, perhaps more than any other twentieth-century writer, forced those who listened to him and read his works to come to terms with their own philosophical presuppositions.'” - Los Angeles Times
