San Francisco, CA HarperCollins: HarperSanFrancisco, 1987. Paperback First Edition Thus, later printing. Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of rubbing to the wrapper covers; the pages have tanned somewhat, due to aging. Binding square and secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 240pp. Dark red field with white letters enclosed in a dark lavender frame with a photograph of Sheldon and Davy in the center of the front panel. First Edition Thus, later printing. Trade Paperback. Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was a novelist, academic, medievalist, lay theologian, and Christian apologist who held academic positions at both Oxford University and Cambridge University. He wrote many other books, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, Problem of Pain, The Screwtape Letters, The World's Last Night, The Great Divorce, God in the Dock, Christian Reflections. Sheldon Vanauken (1914-1996) was an American author; this 1977 book tells of he and his wife Davy's conversion, and his friendship with C.S. Lewis, of whom 18 letters were published for the first time in this book. Vanauken also wrote a sequel, Under the Mercy. He explained in the "Author's Note," "All the events in this story happened, the people are real people, the conversations are reconstructed---or quoted---from diaries and are very close to what was actually said. It is a true story." He wrote in the Prologue, "what was really filling his mind was Davy... now sixmonth dead... As he had written to his friend, C.S. Lewis in England, the manuscript of their love had gone safe to the Printer. He wished for a moment that Lewis were here with him, just for an hour... Lewis understood so well, somehow, the nature of loss... Lewis had been his mainstay in this half-year of sounding the depths of grief. He it was who had said that Davy's death was a severe mercy. A severe mercy---the phrase haunted him: a mercy that was as severe as death, a death that was as merciful as love." Lewis writes, "Note that life after death, which still seems to you the essential thing, was itself a LATE revelation. God trained the Hebrews for centuries to believe in Him without promising them an after-life, and, blessings on Him, he trained me in the same way for about a year. It is like the disguised prince in the fairy tale who wins the heroine's love BEFORE she knows he is anything more than a woodcutter. What wd. be a bribe if it came first had better come last." Vanauken recalls, "When Lewis and I talked of the loss and grief that I was experiencing, he, improbably, was only a few years away from a similar experience of grief [see A Grief Observed]. When he was undergoing it, he must have remembered all we had said about the nature of grief... When he died, I remembered his great shout across the Oxford High Street: 'Christians NEVER say goodbye!' In eternity there will be 'time enough.'" This book is somewhat uneven (Lewis's relatively brief contributions are clearly the highlight), but it contains some interesting words by Lewis that are not written down elsewhere, and so will be of great interest to his many fans., HarperCollins: HarperSanFrancisco, 1987.

Sheldon and Davy Vanauken knew at once that they shared the most rare of loves. Basing their lives on a dogma of complete sharing and a unselfish focus on what was best for both, they created what they dubbed the " Shining Barrier" to safeguard their tiny, self-sufficient world of two from everything else. Then an Oxford don named C.S. Lewis came into their lives, bringing with him a Christianity unlike that which they had scorned years before, and they started to wonder if they were as untouchable by the world as they had once thought. When both became Christians, their love continued, stronger than ever. But when Davy became fatally ill, everything they thought they understood was again called into question. A Severe Mercy is Sheldon' s story of the love he and Davy shared and his struggle to cope with her sickness and death. His journey of theological exploration is buttressed throughout by remarkable letters from C.S. Lewis that offer compassion and theological insight, as well as a penetrating glimpse into Lewis' own burgeoning relationship with Joy Davidman, a relationship that would in many ways parallel that of Sheldon and Davy.
