"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++++
This is a very popular book, and the audiobook is just what you'd expect. Not an extraordinarily captivating performance by the narrator, but you wouldn't expect one. Very important, valuable material is presented- a unique perspective on Christianity from C.S. Lewis that has no-doubt changed many people, and that is what you'd expect. I am glad to have listened to this audiobook. In fact, I own the paperback and could never get through it- but when it's read to you it feels restored to the original intention of a radio program. Worth the credit.
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.
Very High right along C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters
The book is a non-fiction book, written by C.S. Lewis. So the only character, the one speaking, is C.S. Lewis
I wouldn't make a movie of this book.
Understanding C.S. Lewis' thoughts and writings is always challenging for me. But, so worth it! Specifically, Mere Christianity is a collection of speeches made by C.S. Lewis to the Royal Air Force during WWI. They are written with a very 'conversational' tone. So they are better listened to, than read. Awesome! And so fun to listen to! Listen to the Screwtape Letters too!
I love how this is written like a reflective conversation. You really feel like you are listening to your brilliant uncle, friend, father as he imparts his genuine thought out reasons around why, after thorough examination of the facts, careful thought and deep reflection Christianity is just the obvious conclusion. So much to think about and grow from.
