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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
‘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 NorrisSee all Product description

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.
I don't fully agree with all of his theology but that is irrelevant. The thought sand passions expressed I. This book are a great starting point for any believer with questions about the subjects covered.
Lewis begins by pointing out that from childhood we all seem to know what is right and wrong (fair or unfair). He develops the argument as to where this instinct for good originates. He slowly builds up layer by layer the tenants of Christian belief and the Trinity. It is a wonderful book and a very good choice to give to those searching for answers to life.
An absolute benchmark. Often imitated, but rarely bettered.
