In this collection of letters from Lewis to a close friend, Malcolm, we discover a cozy side of Lewis as he regards all aspects of prayer and how this unique ritual touches on the lives and souls of the faithful. Lewis gets us closer to understanding the purpose of prayer in our lives and the manner in which we might better opine our relationship with God.

What makes this book stand out?

This one has more of Lewis's intimate relationship with his friend, Malcolm and simply a collection of letters to him. Rather than some serious spiritual texts.

This is not a regular C.S. Lewis book. It's not really theological in the sense of his other writings like Mere Christianity.
