The Abolition of Man by CS Lewis! I'm so glad Father Thomas Hopko recommends it and did this new podcast on it. http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/hopko/the_abolition_of_man

It's a really powerful little book!

C.S. Lewis, "Our Father Almost Among the Saints." Grin

I love his writing, and Abolition of Man is a great work.

A wonderful book and prophetic of course. For those who haven't read it, it's not really a Christian apologetics book. It's basically about the needs of a universal truth and values, and Lewis symbolizes this by using the Tao. It's a short read but it is pretty dense.
