Instead of another book review, I decided to make a reading list with 25 must read books for this year. Reading is a great way to learn and connect with the wisdom of the past, so I wanted to help people find some great books to read.
This is the second book by C.S. Lewis that I've reviewed. The Abolition of Man is a work that I believe is prophetic, but not just because it described a problem we'd deal with decades later. Rather, the prophecy lies in the ability to predict the end result. It does so by following the logic to its conclusion with tremendous accuracy. Near the end, he says, "But you cannot go on 'explaining away' for ever; you will find that you have explained explanation itself away." If that doesn't call to mind our current Postmodern culture, I don't know what does. So, if you're interested in how Lewis check out this review.

Lewis' Screwtape Letters is a great read for people of all ages, at least from middle school on. It is the tale of two demons, an older and a younger trying to tempt a man to bring him to Hell. And, the older demon is advising his nephew on how to do this successfully. You'll see all the subtle ways that demons can tempt you and pull your attention away from where it should be.
