    "SHORT BOOK BUT WORTH A LISTEN"

    I found this book very interesting and educational

    It is a very short book (under 60 min) I was disapointed that it was not longer.

    Some deep theology but presented in an interesting and clear maner.

    It's pretty profound

    "A jewel from C.S. Lewis"

    As a diehard fan of C.S. Lewis, I enjoy all of his books. This one, "What Christians Believe" is a concise review of the major doctrines of western Christianity - I never knew C.S. Lewis had written such a book. This little book covers what Christians believe in an entertaining, nonconfrontational, and informative manner. His simple, direct style makes some important concepts and ideas obvious, that otherwise had been dull and foggy. The narrator was excellent! His presentation was clear and soothing, but also lively and entertaining - it will never put you to sleep.

    "Rated on Content"

    This was a tough listen for me on audio, but I will listen again. The content is true to C.S. Lewis and always an encouragement. He is able to present Jesus in a manner that cannot be argued.

    "Fascinating and enlightening"

    I found this book takes a lot of listening as complex concepts are explored; but it is so worth the while. Don't be put off by the slightly old fashioned language in places 'cos it was written in the 1940/50's? The explanations and insights provided are like sunlight breaking through a storm cloud or a muddy pool suddenly becoming crystal clear; not only is it enlightening but inspiring and answers questions you didn't even realize were bothering you. I cannot recommend it more highly and I have read and reread it many times. I am quite certain I will continue to do so in the future. It should even encourage one to get the paperback copy of the original which has a few more parts to it and provides more material for contemplation.
