Mere Christianity Author:C. S. Lewis A forceful and accessible discussion of Christian belief that has become one of the most popular introductions to Christianity and one of the most popular of Lewis’s books. Uncovers common ground upon which all Christians can stand together.
One of the best in the Christian tradition, 'Mere' is a book that will change your perspectives on all things spiritual and eternal. You will away from this book a changed person, regardless of what you went in thinking.
Lewis seeks in Mere Christianity to help us see religion with fresh eyes, as a radical faith whose adherents might be likened to an underground group gathering in a war zone, a place where evil seems to have the upper hand, to hear messages of hope from the other side. --Kathleen Norris, from the foreword.
CS Lewis encourages a person to look and feel beyond our human body. His writings teach a person to be involved with God, to experience his ways, his expectations and to find their own way in life here on earth and beyond. This book opens your heart and mind and gives a person insight on Christianity and faith.
This book is great! It was my first exposure to Lewis writings and I have enjoyed many other books of his since then. If you want to give it as a gift to someone who wants to know more about the Christian faith this is an excellent choice.
Although I don't agree with everything in the book, Mere Christianity is an excellent read to challenge the mind and give excellent insight into various aspects of the faith. Even my 14 year old really enjoyed our daily reading of it and was disappointed when we finished the book.
This C.S. Lewis work is transformative! I loved reading it for the second time. Though there are some philosophical weak points, Lewis's arguments are very sound.
I am a church-going Christian, but even if I were an Agnostic, this book would touch my heart.
