The Weight of Glory de C. S. Lewis (1980)

  1. 00
    Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist de John Piper (atimco)
    atimco: "The Weight of Glory" is Lewis's sermon that sparked the whole idea of Christian hedonism in John Piper. Piper quotes it extensively in Desiring God, but it's good to read Lewis's thoughts in their full context.

I always enjoy C.S. Lewis. He thinks so logically and thoroughly on subjects which I have never considered. ( )
  Michael_J | Jun 2, 2022 |
This is the first book I’ve ever finished by C.S. Lewis—including the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe series (yes, I know!). I assumed that I would find myself bored or confused by his books. I never knew how sharp his arguments are. I found myself constantly just impressed at how he weaves through this complicated theology in such a profound way. I’m sure that about five re-reads would have to be in order for me to even grasp half of what he’s saying, but for my first read, I gained a lot. This is one for those who like to argue, those on the fence, those who doubt the depth of faith. It was GOOD! ( )

I really enjoyed some of the messages in this collection. I won't say they all grabbed my attention; some of them were dry, too many words spent on a simple thing. Others were works of art that made their point well.

My favourites were these:

* The Weight of Glory - the best, both for its wording and its content. Explains that the aching dissatisfaction we have with the best things in this life reveals a something that can satisfy, but is only available in the next life. The point being 1. don't waste your life trying to content yourself with empty things, but long for and strive for the coming approval of God (which he identifies as the thing), and 2. remember that those around you are immortal beings headed for an awesome eternal glory or a horrific eternal shame/destruction. Let that be a gravity to your life.

* Transposition - the concept of things being "transposed" (I would use the word "projected") from a greater realm to a lesser. Just like a sunrise on a mountaintop can be captured by painting a flat canvas, and a full symphonic score can be arranged for a piano, so the glories of God, Christ, and Heaven are transposed into, projected onto, reduced down into our realm into things we can understand. When the Bible describes these things (sometimes in ways that seem mundane or even weird) we mustn't forget that the realities they represent are far greater than we can understand.

* On Forgiveness - a reminder to not confuse asking God to forgive our sins with asking him for excuse our sins. When we have sinned, there may have been extenuating circumstances -- God knows -- but we are still at fault. When we ask God to forgive us we must own our sin, acknowledge it, and then ask for him to cover it with Christ's blood. Not try to say "It wasn't my fault."

* A Slip of the Tongue - are we really prepared for the cost of "you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength."? Are we prepared to be slaves of Christ, to be not our own but "bought with a price"? Often we want to be close to God, but not too close. We want to get close enough to receive his benefits, but we also want to keep a little corner of our life for ourselves. While praying one day, Lewis accidentally prayed to be done with spiritual things so as to not miss out on the earthly things, rather than the other way around. This caused him to meditate on the fact that deep down, he actually wanted this. ( )

Reason is the organ of truth but imagination is the organ of meaning. Unselfishness & self denial are not the same as love. Desiring our own good is good not bad. God finds our desires not too strong but too weak. It is most important how God thinks of us not how we think of God. Glory is as bright luminosity - united with the beauty we see, nature is only a symbol. There are no ordinary people. Take each other seriously - the weight of your neighbor's glory. ( )

The classic Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis, the most important Christian writer of the 20th century, contains nine sermons delivered by Lewis during World War Two. The nine addresses in Weight of Glory offer guidance, inspiration, and a compassionate apologetic for the Christian faith during a time of great doubt.

THE WEIGHT OF GLORY: If you asked twenty good men today what they thought the highest of virtues, nineteen of them would reply, Unselfishness.
LEARNING IN WAR-TIME: A university is a society for the pursuit of learning.
WHY I AM NOT A PACIFIST: The question is whether to serve in the wars at the command of the civil society to which we belong is a wicked action, or an action morally indifferent, or an action morally obligatory.
TRANSPOSITION: In the church to which I belong this day is set apart for commemorating the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the first Christians shortly after the Ascension.
IS THEOLOGY POETRY?: The question I have been asked to discuss tonight - "Is Theology Poetry?" -- is not of my own choosing.

This work contains nine essays. Do not combine with editions containing only five. "The Weight of Glory" has been published in two major editions. The first, identical with "Transposition and other Addresses", was published with five essays in 1949 and intermittently until 1980, when an expanded edition was published, with four additional essays.

Those with pre-1980 five-essay works are invited to separate out and combine their editions with "Transposition and other Addresses".
