A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken

A Severe Mercy

by Sheldon Vanauken

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
8 Hrs. 30 Min.


This poetic autobiography traces Sheldon and Jean (Davy) Vanauken’s love and their intense search for Christian faith. At Oxford they met C.S. Lewis and, through his influence, became Christians. Then Jean contracted a mysterious illness. What follows is a forceful and moving account of hope and sorrow. Lewis’s letters illustrate the hand of God, “working all things together for good to those who love Him.” Vanauken’s descriptions of love and beauty border on the sublime. A warning: listening to this book may cause blurred vision. Even our reader was interrupted by a fresh flow of tears.
