Book Review: The Great Divorce

Book Review by Talon O. Moser

I am an avid reader of not only the Bible, but inspired Christian authors, DIY books and the sciences to have a better understanding of the world around me.  This December I have taken a liking to Clive S. Lewis novels. Fully unaware about the experience the novelist has in writing, and his style as a writer. I had only heard of Lewis being quoted from speakers for inspiration and as another just testimony for Gods righteousness.

This recent book, The Great Divorce written by C. S. Lewis is a fictional novel without scripture, butIMG_0224 Lewis wraps the plot in Gods moral righteousness, how God defines right and wrong. It is full of poetry which took myself a while to understand, and even comprehend the storyline. I had to cheat and look it up. It simply is about ghosts that find a way from Hell into Heaven. Upon gradually seeking further onto the light of Heaven the Ghosts encounter many challenges; Spirits, harsh environments, and letting go of control. The Spirits try to help the ghosts, so they may be able to enter Heaven. Most refuse unable to let go of their sin, and some make the choice to give it to God.

The best part is the poetry that eludes how sin holds us back, as the reader finds through each ghosts’ decision to either return to Hell or change to enter Heaven. The road to Hell is paved and easy to walk down and many follow this path. The road to Heaven is rough, rocky and is filled with suffering.

I would recommend the book to anyone. It is a fascinating story showing how change, and letting go is most important to move forward in the right direction. And that holding on to people and situations that one cannot control will only drive one apart from joy, peace, and hope.

Book Review: Mere Christianity

Book Review by Talon O. Moser

I am an avid reader of not only the Bible, but inspired Christian authors, DIY books and the sciences to have a better understanding of the world around me. I had just finished reading a novel Mere Christianity written by novelist Clive Staples Lewis. The imagery and inspiration I will not forget. I had also written notes and highlights throughout the book.

As you read it you will find it is filled with a colorful palette combining theology, IMG_0220scriptures, analogies, and inspiring statements by the author. C. S. Lewis writes about commonly discussed, or misunderstood topics in Christianity in this novel.

This novel can be a complicated read for novice readers, and for anybody who not interested in Christianity. Therefore, I only recommend it for anyone taking that leap into salvation, or has already accepted Christ as their savoir. This book will help answer any questions you have, or inspire new questions to ask God about and seek.

God Bless.

Book Review : anxious for nothing

Finding Calm in a Chaotic World

Book Review by Talon O. Moser
I am an avid reader of not only the Bible, but inspired Christian authors, DIY books and the sciences to have a better understanding of the world around me. I was introduced to novelist and bestselling author Max Lucado through his work “anxious for nothing; Finding Calm in a Chaotic World”. As a Christian I am well aware of sin and repentance, but it is the devil’s devices that Max speaks about which creates anxiety, thus leading to sin.IMG_0200
Max Lucado utilizes biblical references and unique experience to intertwine simple examples when Satan’s grip may become too strong, to rely on the saving grace of our Lord. It is a very inspiring book.
I recommend this book to anyone facing peril, paranoia, or grieving. And if you know of anyone trying to overcome these emotions on their own, donate this book to them. I pray it will inspire and help as it did me while I was facing financial issues.
God Bless.

 

Book Review : The Screwtape Letters

Book Review by Talon O. Moser

I am an avid reader of not only the Bible, but inspired christian authors, DIY books and the sciences to have a better understanding of the world around me. I have just finished reading a christian fiction-based novel by C. S. Lewis called named The Screwtape Letters. IMG_0212

cleverly written, Lewis takes the reader into the World War II era, but in the mind of a demon inquisitor Screwtape, writing letters to his apprentice Wormwood. As a christian reader you learn how vices, temptation, and sin are played against you, and not in your favor. 

I highly recommend the book to anyone who seeks new perspectives on how the devil deceives the spirit. It is an enjoyable read all the way through.

God Bless.
