This paperback contains five of C.S. Lewis's classic works. "The Pilgrim's Regress" (1933), Lewis's first prose work, explains in allegory the elusive experience he calls Joy and its part in his conversion. "Prayer: Letters to Malcolm" (1964) was Lewis's last book in which he corresponds with an imaginary friend on various aspects of prayer. "Reflections of the Psalms", (1958) shares Lewis's thoughts on the Psalms which he knew almost by heart through daily attendance at his college chapel. "The Abolition of Man" (1944) examines the importance and relevance of universal values such as courage and honour in contemporary society. "Till We Have Faces" (1956), described by Lewis as "the favourite of all my books", retells and interprets the story of Cupid and Psyche.
