Product description

Amazon Review

In 1943, when hope and the moral fabric of society in Britain were threatened by the relentless inhumanity of global war, an Oxford don was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. Over half a century after the original lectures, the topic retains its urgency. Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation. As Mr Lewis clearly demonstrates, Christianity is not a religion of flitting angels and blind faith, but of free will, an innate sense of justice and the grace of God. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

“He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.” Times Literary Supplement

“Lewis seeks in Mere Christianity to help us see religion with fresh eyes, as a radical faith whose adherents might be likened to an underground group gathering in a war zone, a place where evil seems to have the upper hand, to hear messages of hope from the other side.” Kathleen Norris

This is a brilliant book and has stood the test of time. If anyone claims to be an atheist...they should read this.
If anyone says they are agnostic..they should read this.
If anyone thinks anything at all..they should read this. Next to the bible it has to be the best apologetic of Christianity.
But ultimately no one will be convinced of anything unless they are genuinely open and ready to be surprised by God.

CS Lewis has the knack of explaining complex things simply. He makes the gospels message and our need for Christ accessible and understandable to this generation.
