Read online A Grief Observed (Linford Inspirational Library).pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC A Grief Observed (Linford Inspirational Library) Written with love humility and faith this brief but poignant volume was first published in and concerns the death of C S Lewis s wife the American born poet Joy Davidman In her introduction to this new edition Madeleine L Engle writes I am grateful to Lewis for having the courage to yell to doubt to kick at God in angry violence This is a part of a healthy grief which is not often encouraged It is helpful indeed that C S Lewis who has been such a successful apologist for Christianity should have the courage to admit doubt about what he has so superbly proclaimed It gives us permission to admit our own doubts our own angers and anguishes and to know that they are part of the soul s growth .

Written in longhand in notebooks that Lewis found in his home A Grief Observed probes the mad midnight moments of Lewis s mourning and loss moments in which he questioned what he had previously believed about life and death marriage and even God Indecision and self pity assailed Lewis We are under the harrow and can t escape he writes I know that the thing I want is exactly the thing I can never get The old life the jokes the drinks the arguments the lovemaking the tiny heartbreaking commonplace Writing A Grief Observed as a defense against total collapse a safety valve he came to recognize that bereavement is a universal and integral part of our experience of love .

Lewis writes his statement of faith with precision humor and grace Yet neither is Lewis reluctant to confess his continuing doubts and his awareness of his own human frailty This is precisely the quality which suggests that A Grief Observed may become among the great devotional books of our age by C.S. Lewis
