Yes for Lewis and Geoffrey Howard
I was concerned that complex Christian theology would be hard to follow by ear. But since the book was based on radio talks, it was easy to follow but still thought provoking.
An avid book "listener". As I own my own dental lab,I make teeth sitting at a bench all day, I have plenty of time to enjoy Audible titles
I would not, though as an additional source it has much to recomend it. Own this book if you do not already, since you may, like me, wish to make notes and check references.
Very practical book with concise explainations of the fundamentals of "Christianity" and not of religion.
Geoffrey Howard does a good job of making the text easily accessible but giving Lewis' writing style its due in the presentation. The audio presentation helped to move along what might have been more tedious reading.
His accent works very well as a representative of Lewis' style.
No, but that's because the subject material takes a good bit of pondering and meditation to appreciate.
This book is a classic for a good reason. I've listened to the audio book twice, so far (with a couple others between listenings), and I will probably get one or two more listenings out of it in the near future, as there is so much to soak in.
the sincerity of the author
an execellent testimony of faith for both believer and non-believers
Insightful, challenging, Changing
C. S. Lewis originally gave Mere Christianity as a radio broadcast. I felt that Geoffrey Howard captured this medium and I was instantly hooked.
I laugh at Lewis' ability to push the envelop and challenge my preconceived ideas.
Highly recommended for those investigating the Christian faith - beware, may be life-changing.
I have not read the print version
The way that C.S. Lewis is so witty in his writing.
Great book! I will be purchasing more C.S. Lewis books.
I listened to this 3 times in a row, gathering so much each time! Whatever your feelings on Christianity, you will gain something from this book! The delivery was good. I feel some ashamed that I had not read or listened to this book earlier in my life!
I am an amateur philosopher and a competent theoligian with a heart to learn and inspire others to authentic and meaningful living
Lewis provides one of the best apologetics for Christianity and he successully dodges some of the trite and superficial objections. Using some pretty folksy stories and illustrations, he stealthy sneeks up on the the metaphysical and theological implications of the life and subsequent claims of Jesus Christ. Even in this new age of robust defenders for the faith, and the public brawl with the 'new athiets', Lewis is still able to go the intellectual distance with the best of thinkers. Simply loved it ....
Great voice ... but primarily makes the work of Lewis accessible to me on the move
This book was so good that I had to go and buy it in print so I could take notes and use it as a reference tool. Lewis distills huge philosophical/spiritual questions into answers that seem so logical you think,
Lewis uses humor and analogies to really make a point clear to the reader. Pursuing truth from the position of a skeptic allows others who doubt to feel understood, rather than condemned and denounced. So often the agnostic or atheist has had poor experiences with religion, and feels the sting of the
I think he did an excellent job conveying humor, sarcasm and seriousness as the topic required. His tone and inflection were perfect, and despite the English accent, I had no trouble following his cadence.
It would have been too long to do that, but I absolutely looked forward to hearing the next section.
Fantastic! Intelligent read!
The narrator inhaled so loudly that it sounded like he was on an oxygen machine. I didn't notice at first, since I was so involved in the book, but when I tried listening the second time, I couldn't get past the narration.
