One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. This audiobook brings together C. S. Lewis' legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, in which he set out simply to "explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times."

I don’t know how in the world CS Lewis wrote such as incredible books with such great examples to clarify so much about Christianity.
This is my second or third time to enjoy this book over the years and every time I do, I learn so much that I must have missed the time before and it is a new awakening to Christ all the more. Bravo to a life well-lived in service to Christ, CS Lewis. You enriched so many lives and for sure mine.

This book answers foundational questions: Who wrote the Bible? What is its message? Why is it thought to be a 'holy' book? How does one read and interpret it? Best of all, though, you'll broaden your vision of Jesus Christ, the focal point of Scripture. How? By better understanding the geographical, religious, and historical concerns that shaped the world in which he lived.

"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this." This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.

In A Father Who Keeps His Promises, the popular Catholic apologist Scott Hahn focuses on the “big picture” of Scripture: God’s plan in making and keeping covenants with us throughout salvation history—despite our faults and shortcomings—so that we might live as the family of God.

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.

Recent surveys indicate that the vast majority of Christians, those claiming to be born - again, believe that their salvation is at least in part dependent upon their behavior and actions. Yes, they believe Jesus died for their sins, but once they accept Him as their Savior they believe they must still meet a certain standard to be "good" enough. If that is true, then what is that standard and how do you know when you have met it? The church has tried to answer these questions for centuries and it always results in religious and legalistic bondage.

Now I have a greater understanding of God's gift of grace and what the book of Romans is telling us than ever before. Totally uplifting! I am so thankful.
