Rated 5 out of 5 by from Logic and evidence This is the first time I have ever seen someone prove Christianity by logic and natural evidence. Just brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Indispensable Little Book Put simply, 'Mere Christianity' is a short, lucid introduction to Christianity. Lewis moves first from a form of the moral argument for God's existence through an explanation of Christian teachings and doctrines with a concluding explication of what it means to be a Christian. This brief summary, however, does absolutely no justice to the content of this powerful book. Lewis enjoys a command of the language like few other authors and he employs it here with unmatched deftness. His insights are indelibly penetrating; the movement of his thinking prevails over and over. The result is something altogether astounding, so full of spiritual acuity that it becomes an indispensable little book; to be read again and again with insight to be treasured anew with each read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great insight into what Christianity is all about. Lewis has a way of making philosophical and theological ideas understandable in very simple terms for ordinary people. Here he offers a non-denominational view about what mere Christianity is really all about, and he goes to the core. I recommend this to both the agnostic searching for meaning and the Christian seeking after true discipleship.
