Summary, etc.: Here are two classics of moral philosophy from one of the most revered Christian voices of our time. In The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis reflects on society and nature and the challenges of how best to educate our children. He describes what public education should be and how far from this standard modern education has fallen. Lewis eloquently argues that we need as a society to underpin reading and writing lessons with moral education. In The Great Divorce, Lewis presents his vision of the Afterworld. A fictional narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings and comes to some significant realizations about the nature of good and evil.
