Publisher's Summary

Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books, The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of the religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, C.S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that "at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice".

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Thought-provoking theological philosophy"

    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.

    "To the scientists"

    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.

    "Excellent Reading of an Great Book"

    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.

    "Great in audio format"

    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.

    "Excellent reading by Geoffrey Howard"

    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.

    "A strong defense of Christianity"

    Powerful! Many people point to The Case for Christ as a good book to logically analyze Christianity, but this book should be the start of that list! C.S. Lewis lays out Christianity in a rational, logical way that is easy to grab on to! Definitely a resource I will continue to come back to!
