The Weight of Glory

The Weight of Glory by C. S. Lewis

A collection of war-time addresses.  He observes that the time so colored them that he doesn't feel confident revising them, it's like the work of another man.

Covers a variety of topics.

Some theological, like the title piece and "Membership," where he argues with the notion of religion being solitary and also with the notion of its being collectivist.

Some moral, like "The Inner Ring" about the desire to be in in the in group.

Some combining both -- such as when he addresses the issue of why the young men are sent to college to study liberal arts when there's a war going on!
