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.
CS Lewis is so gifted a writer that you cannot think of a better way to explain what he so masterfully does. This book is a gift of God to humanity !
A must read!! So many questions answered in this book. Amazing how C.S. Lewis is able to make such clear thought into words. A gift from God no doubt.
Every Christian who professes to be one, every non Christian who has always wondered what true Christianity is about and the theology should have a read. I'll add everyone who has ever questioned this life we live in and as thinking humans wanted plausible coherent answers, they should check out this book!
This book is one that can be listened to, then thought about, read your bible and listened to again. it will chip away at the many levels of understanding of Christianity. There are many examples very relatable that helped clear some things for me and others that made me wonder if I need to dig in deeper to learn more.
