A Grief Observed

A redated post. 

I knew C. S. Lewis was popular, but I was surprised to find 155 reviews of A Grief Observed on Amazon, almost all very favorable, and I did not see anyone try to argue that he fatally compromised his apologetics in this book based on his own grief experience.

Lewis never advocated one of those takes on Christianity that promises an absence of suffering, and that he loved his wife well enough for such overwhelming grief is no discredit to his faith.

I know this is off topic but what happned to Victor Repperts Facebook account if I may ask ?

I wonder how many of the people writing those reviews are sympathetic to Lewis' apologetic? I wonder how many atheists have read/are that interested in reading a book like A Grief Observed? Certainly I've never read any books on suffering from an atheist or Buddhist point of view.

Dear Sir,

I have Argument from Reason audio from Dawkins that I would like your input on, but have no way of reaching you besides this comments section.

Could you email me at geoffrobinson AT gmail? Thank you. Feel free to delete this comment after you view it.

I have pulled down my facebook account. It did some good, but it didn't seem to me like the best use of time.

Is this new Dawkins AFR material? I heard one a few months back where he was asked a question about it, and he didn't seem to understand the argument at all.
