GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (August 23, 2013)—Devotional material by one of the 20th century’s all-time best-selling authors, C. S. Lewis, is now available on Bible Gateway, the world’s largest Christian website (http://bg4.me/11Km8QK). Email subscription signup is at http://www.biblegateway.com/newsletters/.
The late Oxford and Cambridge professor Lewis, acclaimed author of “The Chronicles of Narnia” and more than 30 other books, is recognized for his contributions in literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature and popular theology. For the first time, Bible Gateway will provide daily meditative messages to site visitors and email subscribers, pulled from eight of Lewis’ most famous books.Excerpts from “Mere Christianity,” “The Screwtape Letters,” “The Great Divorce,” “The Problem of Pain” and “A Grief Observed,” as collected in the book “A Year with C. S. Lewis: Daily Readings from His Classic Works” (HarperOne, 2003), have been carefully selected for Bible Gateway’s offering. Themes such as the nature of love, the existence of miracles, overcoming loss and discovering profound faith are explored through Lewis’ unflinchingly honest insights for each day of the year.
