In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.
In his “Preface to Paradise Lost”, Lewis wrote the following:

CS Lewis is one of the great modern Christian writers. His writings are non-denominational, and can be appreciated by people of any faith. This box set contains some (though not all!) of his best work.

After reading several books on a similar topic that did nothing but confuse me, I was glad that I came upon C.S. Lewis’s work. All of the other books about the existence of God are way off in their own world, and discourage anyone who feels lost in their ideas about God. This book really explained the reasons that God must exist, and then moved on to easily describe the major beliefs of Christians, without leaving anyone out in the cold on what the key issues actually are. This book is perfect for the agnostic, the atheist, and even the Christian that wants to know the logical and simple reasons that C.S. Lewis came to be a Christian. Over and over, his words made me see even the simplest concepts of religion in a completely new light. I was greatly impressed and have already read this book multiple times.
Infinite stars for a book of eternal wisdom!

C. S. Lewis rejects the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations. While religious belief is not a concern for some, to many more it is an extremely serious decision, requiring deep thought and the entire energy of the mind.

At the age of 25 I read this book in 1976. In the midst of its pages, I became a Christian. The conversion experience was real, it was exciting, and it was lasting. Now, 23 years later, I consider myself a child of God through the ministry of C.S. Lewis. Charles Colson, former “enforcer” of the Nixon Administration, also became a Christian reading Lewis’s Mere Christianity. I recommend it to non-believers, believers, and to outright opponents of the idea that Jesus is Lord. Why? Because Lewis strips away all the silly religious accretions that obscure the true message of this historic person known as Jesus of Nazareth. All of these notions kept me away from the faith for years, and it was exhilirating to confront, via Lewis, the Jesus who actually walked the Earth and who, 25 years ago, changed my life radically and forever. I am a lawyer who knows what evidence will stand up in a court room. Lewis has it. I have been “convicted” by that evidence, by the grace of God.
500 stars for the books. A question mark for the set.

The books grouped together in this boxed set are – taken together – unquestionably the greatest achievement in modern Christian apologetics. (If I hesitate to place them alongside something like St. Augustine’s “The City of God”, it is only because their cultural contexts are so different that it would be comparing apples and oranges; not because I necessarily think Lewis’s achievement is any smaller.) Years of exposure to their ultra-lucid and gracious discourse (such a tonic for the harangues of the televangelists!) – voluntarily sought out for the sheer pleasure of his elegant prose – gradually brought me from pugnacious atheism to (much to my surprise) a church pew. So if you’re coming to Lewis with anything less than a hermetically sealed mind, be warned by my example. As he wryly puts it, an atheist can’t be too careful what he reads.

Recently, I’ve run into several people who say they find reading C.S. Lewis difficult. What??? C.S. Lewis had the cleanest, most lucid prose style ever known to English (His poetry however is another case).

C.S. Lewis is perhaps the greatest Christian thinker of the 20th century. This book is one of his masterpieces. Basically this book is a reasoned explanation of the Christian religion. He covers the Trinity, the book of Genesis, etc. However, this is not light reading. Some books by Lewis (such as the “Great Divorce” and “Chronicles of Narnia”) are very light and profound reading. Mere Christianity is not light. It’s one of those books that you have to read one page three times before you move on. Lewis is not afraid to get deep and detailed in this book. There’s a lot of philosophy in here which I like, its not just an “I believe and that’s that” type of book. Really heavy, but rewarding reading.

If you’re looking for a very interesting, enthralling book, this is the one. What I found so enjoyable about Lewis’s style is how he develops such strong arguments promoting the fact that God exists by getting you to concede one small point at a time.

The Mens group I’m with is going over this book. I have learned so much from this book.
