I was totally amazed, I must admit , by all the stories that I have listened to here. Being my first time listening to Lewis's writings I loved the way he describes his thoughts on christiananty. Lewis writings make you think.

If you could sum up The Weight of Glory in three words, what would they be?
Challenging, edifying and refreshing.
What did you like best about this story?
C.S Lewis is very thorough in his arguments. I particularly like these sermons because I find they show common sense, logic and because in it Lewis recognises qualities that are natural to humans - something we as a society seem to find increasingly difficult to do and express. I am grateful to have found these.
What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Ralph Cosham reads beautifully and with understanding. Because he reads with understanding the content is easier to understand.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, but only because it contains too many new concepts for me to take in all at once.
Any additional comments?
The only change I would suggest is that some of the more complex ideas involving a comparison or summary of ideas could be read more slowly to allow the listener more time to take them in. Quite often I had to replay Lewis's principles to comprehend them, and to see if I agreed with them - for example, at the end of chapter 9: "No man who values originality will ever be original, but try to tell the truth as you see it, try to do any bit of work as well as it can be done, for the work's sake, and what men call originality will come unsought." But I would probably have had to reread this comparison of related ideas in a book, so it's no probably more a symptom of my coming across a new set of ideas. Still, if they had been read a little more slowly it would have been easier to hit the pause button and find the point from where to listen again - several complex sets of ideas were read very quickly.
