Just Hours to Save on the C.S. Lewis Collection

The C.S. Lewis week is winding down, but you still have a few hours to get his collection in Verbum for 30% off.

Here are three reasons why you should (besides the fact that he’s one of the most influential Christian writers and apologists of all time and his books are incredible).

1. This sale may never come around again

The only other time we’ve offered this discount is when the collection was available for pre-order, three years ago. It’s one of those products we can rarely put on sale, so this may be your last opportunity to get it for less than list price.

2. There are three layers of savings happening here

As always, collections in Verbum are the best way to get a lot of books for the best price. And with this sale, there are actually three layers of savings:

  1. You save by getting the electronic versions of these books. (This collection would cost nearly $600 in print.)
  2. You save by getting them bundled. (Individually, the total would be $463.72. The bundle normally costs $400.)
  3. You save with the discount: The whole collection is marked down to $279.99.

So by getting this bundle on sale, you’re getting what would be a $600 stack of books for less than half that—and you’re getting them in the most useful format.

3. These books are enhanced by Verbum

In Verbum, books are transformed into insights for you. You don’t have to read all 30 of these books cover to cover to find a great quote.

For example, last night I was reading a C.S. Lewis collection called Letters to Children, and I came across a wonderful quote on love:

A perfect man [would] never act from sense of duty; he’d always want the right thing more than the wrong one. Duty is only a substitute for love (of God and of other people)—like a crutch, which is a substitute for a leg. Most of us need the crutch at times: but of course it’s idiotic to use the crutch when our own legs (our own loves, tastes, habits etc) can do the journey on their own!*

Two things worth noting:

1) In Verbum, I could come across that quote without ever knowing it existed. I could think, “I’d love a good Lewis quote on love,” and then search his collection for the word and find plenty to use.

2) I read that quote in a paper book that is not currently with me. I couldn’t remember just how the quote went, but I knew the word “crutch” was in it. In 30 seconds I opened Verbum, searched the resource for “crutch,” found the quote, and pasted it here.

Ultimately, that’s why you should get this resource.

Because you, like me, have read enough Lewis to know you’re never done digging, and that you could fill a notebook with his insights on our world and faith. And Verbum brings all those insights right to the surface.

Get the ultimate Lewis notebook by getting this collection in Verbum. Don’t wait—C.S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of all the time, and this opportunity to save on his works ends at midnight (PST).

Carl McColman: Why Get the Lewis Collection in Verbum

C.S. Lewis’ writing is beloved by Catholic readers. Carl McColman reviews our September sale on the 30-volume C.S. Lewis Collection and explains why reading Lewis in Verbum is preferable to reading in a plain e-reader:

In this excerpt, Carl McColman reviews our September sale and explains why reading Lewis in Verbum is preferable to reading in a plain e-reader:

But why buy the Verbum collection? Why not just download all these books on the Kindle? Getting them on Verbum means integrating your C.S. Lewis books with all the other books in your Verbum library—all the Scripture passages will link back to your favorite Bible versions, which basically means you can consult Lewis when doing your Bible study.

Although you can install Verbum on your phone or tablet and use it as an ordinary ebook reader, the fact that your Verbum library is integrated with the Bible, the Catholic Catechism, and other essential books on the faith means that you can read Lewis alongside many of the great authors who inspired him.

Grab the C.S. Lewis Collection for 30% off while you still can. This rare sale ends midnight Sept. 24.

Few—if any—modern authors have had as much impact on Christianity as C.S. Lewis. His writing, encompassing everything from carefully argued treatises to satire and children’s fantasy, reflects his imaginative take on the Christian faith. [Read more…]
