Book Summary of The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis


If there is one overriding theme in this book, it is perhaps the supreme coherence and beauty of Christianity.

Nine war-time sermons are collected here, offering guidance, wisdom, and a compassionate apologetic for Christianity at a time of great national and international uncertainty. What is it about Christianity that enables it to make sense of such an uncertain world? How does it make sense to Christians, let alone the world beyond?

This is a book that should be read by any Christian who wants to thoughtfully engage others with their faith. It offers an approach to Christianity that is simultaneously logically coherent and wonderfully warm.

Read, and find your idols revealed, desires uncovered, and inconsistencies exposed. Above all, read and find yourself invited into a joyful belief that finds those deepest desires fulfilled in all we were created for.

Read, and find the glory which both “turns out to satisfy my original desire and to reveal an element in that desire which I had not noticed” (p. 39).
