Despite a number of sections to which I would take exception, I think the book is very interesting, enjoyable to read, and I recommend it and all Lewis' Evangelization highly.
I tried to enter this book in my list of books, but couldn't find it in the list that came up, neither in the UK library nor the Library of Congress--nor Amazon (I admit I haven't taken the time to enter the LOC cat card #). Is that what I must do next?
I was able to find several editions when I searched the title using the Library of Congress. You might also want to try searching Overcat, which I understand looks up successful previous searches by LibraryThing members. I do see a typo in your subject line above ("Malcom" rather than "Malcolm"); if your search had the same typo, that might explain the lack of results. Good luck finding the edition of the book you want; sometimes that can be difficult.
"For me (Lewis) words (of Prayer) are secondary. They are only an anchor. Or, shall I say, they are the movements of a conductor's baton: not the music. They serve to canalise the worship or penitence or petition which might without them--such are our minds--spread into wide and shallow puddles. It does not matter much who first put them (the words of Prayer) together. If they are our own words they will soon, by unavoidable repetition, harden into a formula. If they are someone else's, we shall continually pour into them our own meaning."
Anybody know whether I can correct the title of this thread?
