Mere Christianity

by C. S. Lewis

HarperCollins | April 21, 2015 | Trade Paperback

Mere Christianity is rated 5 out of 5 by 5.

One of the most popular introductions to Christian faith ever written,Mere Christianityhas sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C. S. Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to "explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times." Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many de-nominations, Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. It is a collection of scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader and at the same time confirms C. S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Informative I love C.S. Lewis. This book really breaks down the basic beliefs of Christianity in simple, easy-to-understand passages. Full of common sense and very entertaining!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Christian Classic A master of words, C.S. Lewis continues to inspire and enlighen the Christian community with this book. A must read for those seeking spiritual truths.
