"Geoffrey Howard's performance is superb; he is clear and unhurried, giving just the right emphasis and/or inflection....Whether or not one agrees with Lewis's arguments, it is a pleasure to hear such a skillful reading of an eloquent work." (Library Journal)
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would not have read or had the time to read it but to listen on audible has allowed me to get a a core understanding from one who has an in depth well of knowledge and understanding. I donot agree with some of his opinions but the overall concept that he intruces , I applaud with 5*.
I don't agree with everything in this book but it certainly is very powerful and for the parts I agree with it is everything a book could be on how to be one's true shining Self. By the way, I don't recommend reading only the ending. It's really necessary to build on his premises before it can be all put together.
Yes, there are so many truths and the examples are excellent, but to truly internalise everything, I will have to listen to it again.
I have not, however his voice and style is fantastic.
It astonished me every now and then it answered questions I didn't even know I had.
I would recommend this book to anyone, it doesn't matter if you are religious or not, this book will set your thought in motion.
