For a long time I've been what my friends jokingly call a "recovering Catholic", but lately, I've been looking for critical thinking around Christianity. This is an incredible resource to open the mind to ideas I'd grown up with, but not fully understood--or at least had taken the time to think through. An excellent book for those who are thinking of their faith. A short course in theology.
I am not a christian, but I do find myself wondering about religion. The main reason I have not yet been a religious man is that I am a scientist and an incredible sceptic. This book is christianity explained for the scientific and sceptically mind.
The conversational tone of the reader augments the style of C. S. Lewis' sometimes dry writing and forms a amazing reading of a work that is timeless.
This is a book that has been on my shelf for years and I have never been motivated to get through it. However, this particular book works extremely well in the audio format. After a slightly slow start, I found myself enthralled and listened for many hours straight. It is also a book that I plan to listen to again and again over the years so it was an excellent use of a book credit. C.S. Lewis presents a very logical and detailed analysis of the existence of God and validity of Christianity. I highly recommend the book to anyone searching for the truth as well as to those of us who can grow from a well reasoned argument for faith in God and Christ.
The most inspiring detailed and logical book on Christianity I've ever had the pleasure to read/listen to. The narrator is pleasent to listen to. A++++
Geoffrey Howard does an excellent job reading this great work by CS Lewis. He has a very pleasant sounding British accent not harsh like some. Mere Christianity is a must read for anyone.
This book is spot on! Lewis articulates exactly what the Bible says about what Christianity really is. An explanation A to Z.
Geoffrey reads well and is easy to understand. I haven't heard any of his other books so I can't really compare this to others. His British accent adds to the presentation since the author (CS Lewis) was British.
This book was so deep and covers such a wide and complex range of topics that it is impossible to listen to the whole book in one sitting. This is the type book that you would come back to and re-listen time and time again.
I would recommend this book for people that don't have any particular faith as well as Christians. Frequently people say that they are free thinkers and would like to make up their own minds based on facts. This book is for that person. A person that wants real information that's logically presented. Information that's intellectually honest.
This book is great whether or not you are a Christian. It doesn't matter what you believe before you read this book, it will still have a profound impact on how you view life! The world needs more people who can express reason as articulately as CS Lewis. And a great performance as well.
