Publisher's Summary

2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many times, but never outdone. The book is comprised of the legendary radio talks which he gave during the war years.

Mere Christianity brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcasts from the war years; talks in which he set out simply to ‘"explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times."

Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations, C. S. Lewis provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. This scintillating collection confirms C. S. Lewis’s reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

What the Critics Say

    "Superb - listened twice."
    Where does Mere Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Mere Christianity rates as one of the clearest convincing explanations for the Christian faith I have yet to read. I can see why it is a classic.

    Story
    "Really good read !!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mere Christianity the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the insight that C.S. Lewis has into the Christian life and is not afraid of using his intellect to get that across.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way that C.S.Lewis always relates his faith to the real world.


    What does Geoffrey Howard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The human voice narrating a story brings a new dimension to the storytelling process compared to if you just read the book.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Jesus, as relevant today as He was yesterday.

    Where does Mere Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As it is only my second book and the other was not good, this is the best I have heard.


    Any additional comments?

    This book helps Christians and non Christians to really look into why it makes sense to believe in God.The writer goes into real life things that can be used as proof of God. Great writing and delivered very well.

    "Brilliant"

    As inspirational and challenging as all of his books, C.S. Lewis cuts to the sometimes uncomfortably uncompromising crux of Christianity in its truest form

    "A must read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mere Christianity to be better than the print version?

    I have listen to it whilst doing almost anything i.e. walking to catch the train.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mere Christianity?

    The whole book is really good, however when Lewis gives examples they are even more memorable.


    Which character – as performed by Geoffrey Howard – was your favourite?

    This book is not character based.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I know that sounds a bit cheesy but most of the book is moving, however for the sake of the review, the example of god is like a father who is happy with his son's first faltering steps but will not be satisfied with anything less than strong strides when his son grows. God is easy to please and hard to satisfy.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a must read for any Christian or anyone who wants to understand more of what Christianity is about. It is a bit old but does a great job.

    "Very helpful book - a real classic"

    I really enjoyed listening to Mere Christianity and it has inspired me to take the time to go and read the dead tree version of the book, so that I can more readily stop and think about all the illustrations Lewis uses.

    I did feel though that the narrator did not really enjoy recording this book and sometimes I had to really concentrate to stay present while listening.
