Publisher's Summary

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."

Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, Mere Christianity provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to absorb a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.

    "Mere Christianity, complex ideas in simple terms"

    C.S. Lewis was a Britt, so it's only fitting to have a British narrator. The content was originally intended for radio, so listening flows naturally. The chapters are short too-- 10--20 minutes. A great starter!

    "Fabulous. A must read!"

    Fabulous. A must read! This book is all "meat" and not a quick listen; the kind where you listen to a chapter or two a day and let it digest. I highly recommend it!

    "Relevant thoughts from a Timeless perspective."

    I've read this book years ago, and to listen to it was refreshing and allowed me to capture different thoughts that I had previously missed.
    The audio performance was spot on, and easy to follow.

    "Captivating"

    I'll listen to this several more times. Packed full of wisdom and insight.

    The delivery of the speakers was easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to.

    "Great christian insights from another era"

    Lewis makes some good points in this but also a few mundane ones. Overall, it makes for a nice and easy listen.

    "Clear Christianity"

    First off, I must give Julian Rhind-Tutt's narration five stars. It was easy to understand his words due to excellent diction. Also, when a passionate, or emphasized, word or phrase was to be told, it was delivered very well, sometimes giving goosebumps.

    As far as the author, I give C.S. Lewis high praise for the ease in which he explains every idea. No matter what the subject, he'll give an analogy that even the simplest of minds (like mine) will clearly understand. You'll finish listening to the sentence saying "That makes perfect sense."

    I was once an atheist (as Lewis was) and this inspired my purchase of the book a while ago. I did not actually read/listen to it - thinking that our different denominations would come into ply - but my pastor gave it as a side-read earlier this month. So, I dove in and I found, despite our different denominations, Lewis explained the path to salvation clearly, with the highest common sense imaginable.
