*Each section of the commentary includes:
*Pericope Bibliography–a helpful resource containing the most important works that pertain to each particular pericope.

*Comment–verse-by-verse interpretation of the text and dialogue with other interpreters, engaging with current opinion and scholarly research.

Grief Observed$17.99Add to cart
Written by C. S. Lewis with love and humility, this brief but poignant volume was first published in 1961 and courageously encounters the anger and heart-break that followed the death of his wife, an American-born poet, Joy Davidman. Handwritten entries from notebooks that Lewis found in his home capture the doubt and anguish that we all face in times of great loss. He questions his beliefs in this graceful and poignant affirmation of faith in the face of senseless loss.
