    Mon, 07/22/ - — C.S. Lewis Institute. Receive our Publications and Updates: Complete Library of Knowing & Doing: From the Spring issue of Knowing & Doing: In Pursuit of Maturity. by J. Oswald Sanders Reprinted by permission from his book In Pursuit of Maturity. C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity, bk. II, chap. 3, para. 7, p. )] A “right to happiness” sounds to me as odd as a right to good luck. For I believe – whatever, one school of moralists may say – that we depend for a very great deal of our happiness or misery on circumstances outside all human control.

    C.S. Lewis books and resources. One of the most well-known Christians of the 20th century, Clive Staples Lewis was a gifted novelist, academic, poet, and Christian apologist. The C.S. Lewis Signature Classics By C.S. Lewis / HarperOne Now in one portable, affordable anthology. Here are seven essential works by one of the greatest literary and spiritual writers of the 20th centuryMere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, Miracles, A Grief Observed, and Lewis's prophetic examination of universal values, The Abolition of Man.

    Lewis disagrees with Clare, and he decides to examine the Declaration of Independence to discover what the American Founding Fathers meant when they agreed to accept the wording, “the pursuit of happiness.” Lewis suggests that they obviously did not mean that everyone could pursue happiness by any means available. The first book written by C. S. Lewis after his conversion, The Pilgrim’s Regress is, in a sense, a record of Lewis’ own search for meaning and spiritual satisfaction that eventually led him to Christianity. It is the story of John and his odyssey to an enchanting island that has created in him an intense longing, a mysterious, sweet desire. John’s pursuit of this desire takes him.
