1.0 out of 5 stars Long may Lewis burn in Hell, 14 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Mere Christianity: Comprising the Case for Christianity, Christian Behaviour, and beyond Personality (C.S. Lewis Classics) (Paperback)
There is no way I can rate this trite negatively enough.
I was forced to read this book. Even if I hadn't been, had I seen it in a book store, just that would have been enough to eliminate previous like of the Narnia series. I once thought of them as fiction, now I know they are Christian allegory.
Anyone who believes this already believed anyway, because Lewis hops to conclusions without any links to his premises. Besides which, he begs the question.

It would have been nice if you'd have given us some examples of how he hops to conclusions and begs the question.

Mere Christianity is a book for 'believers' and that's about all. I doubt ANY non-believer would be influenced by all the 'beliefs' that C S Lewis uses to convince us that there really IS some invisible deity watching over five or six billion people on this 'god-forsaken planet' !

If the planet is "God forsaken," then wouldn't it follow that he had been there before. You can't forsake something that never happened.
