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.

It is difficult to limit my excitement about this classic work by C.S. Lewis. I first read the book while in college and now I am taking several fellows through the book in a small group setting. It is a timeless classic that is as true today as when it was originally penned by Lewis as a series of talks given in London over the BBC during the challenging days of WW2. One must remember the historical setting when they read through the work. Because this is a compilation of a series of talks, Lewis did not assume that the people who heard his first series of lectures necessarily heard the lectures in the second series. As a result, one might think he is mildly repetitive. As you work through this great book take some time to digest the material in each chapter and reflect upon the material that Lewis covers and the thoroughness of his argument and perspectives. The book is a chronology of the thinking processes Lewis went through as his spiritual journey traveled from atheism and reluctantly to Theism and ultimately to Christianity. It is amazingly refreshing and valid for any reader. One thing I have discovered about Lewis is that he typically packs more into one sentence than most authors do in a paragraph. I cannot recommend this work high enough.

One of the greatest pieces of Christian literature of all time

C.S. Lewis builds Christian doctrine from the ground up, for both believers and non-believers alike. He does not assume that a reader already knows x or believes y. He expertly (and extensively) uses metaphor to help mere humans understand the incomprehensible facts about God.

Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis is one of his most famous books. The book is a based upon a series of radio talks during the World War, with additional elaborations and wisdom from Mr. Lewis. His understanding of theology is deep yet practical, and not swayed by any particular denomination. Clearly he dislikes argumentative Christians and his book focus is to teach the basics without conflict. He writes, “This book, then, does not consist of academic philosophical musings. Rather, it is a work of oral literature, addressed to people at war.” His original audience consisted of men and women who might not live another day, and he purposed to encourage them and bring them into faith. A former atheist, Mr. Lewis simplifies the core concepts of Christianity and argues for the benefits of having a faith rooted in Christ,

Can’t go wrong.

How can you not love this book? In any case, the product itself is great… I saw some people complaining about the pages being uneven… That’s the way its supposed to look. Uneven and whatnot. When you see it, you understand. The book cover is sturdy, yet flexible and comfortable feeling… Like, you’ve read it over and over again. As for the content of the book, C.S. himself says that it is for those that are interested in knowing about the Christian faith. Its not to be used as a rebuttal to someone’s argument. So, if you’re an angry atheist looking to “oh yeah!” Something, just don’t even. You’re wasting your time. You will get nothing out of it, so why make the purchase? BUT, if you want to know and understand what Christianity is about, then this is a great book for you. Like, you wont even want to put it down, kind of interesting.

An unusual but realistic book.

I give this five stars in view of its over all value. The first time I read this was in 1976. as I recall. A friend brought it over right after I had a hysterectomy; otherwise, I might have never read it. This is my fourth copy, (which I have no intention of lending this time); Some of the concepts are remarkable. I believe this author understands human nature, and he seems to have come from a background of rejecting and/or doubting the gospel of Christ. He uses an interesting way of provoking thought, but what caused me to glue myself to the contents of these writings was his expectations of folks. There is no pie in the sky here, and no encouragement for those who have absolutes for human behavior. We are each carrying a map of where we have been, and some maps are much more complicated than others. Remembering this, it is not surprising that these would continue their journeys in a complicated way, at least until they discover a better way to get where they wish to be. And, these are my words, but Lewis says about the same thing, just in a different way, much unlike a lot of books that were available at the time I purchased that first one. Ordinarily, I am not inclined to read books about religion, though very simply written, to make his point as understandable as possible, I am now reading it again, just to remind myself of the contents.

A must read. He presents things as unbiased and …

C.S. Lewis was one of the greatest voices for Christianity, and one of the most insightful Christian Apologists ever. Mere Christianity is a simple, easy to read apologetic and philosophical explanation of the Christian message and its most important doctrines, mainly that of the person of Jesus Christ. If you’re a Christian, or considering becoming one, give this book a read. I will read it again as soon as I get through some other theology and philosophy books I need to finish. These days being a Christian or any kind of Believer is unpopular and frowned upon by the secular mainstream, which is even more reason for those of us who are Believers to read the works of defenders of Faith like Lewis.
