My son is in his early 30's. Practicing Catholic, he is very much a student of philosophy. He is also a Luddite who reads real, dead tree books.

For his birthday, I'd like to gift him with a daily readings collection, but, not something super "light and inspirational". He is far beyond the "Year With C. S. Lewis" that we read together every day when he was young. Magnificat is on the table, however, if there is something that is more of a perm book instead of magazine, I'd be interested.

Google found this, I've never heard of it.

So...what was it?

And what might Lewis have written that made it in?
