- It has NO text justification so that each line is a random length and many lines are a single word (see picture)
- It has NO paragraph spaces, chapter headings, or page numbers
- It has weird text at the start for what appears to be a digital version of the book (see photos)
It looks like someone copied all the text from a webpage, put in a document and just hit "print" without any editing or formatting or anything. DO NOT BUY this version.
For the non-believer, it is a great opportunity to get a bare-bones explanation of everything Christians believe. For the believer, it is a great help in understanding why you believe what you believe. Many Christians, without really realizing it, believe things without knowing why. Lewis's explanation of Christian doctrine from the ground up helps the Christian fill in the blank parts of their theological understanding.
There is not one single day in which an idea from this book doesn't pass through my mind, and I use logic from the book on a regular basis to explain what I believe and why. I would highly recommend this book.
Very thought out and logical arguments. His sentences are long so sometimes the reader needs to read the passage more than once to get his meaning, but that is fair since he was a brilliant author and an accomplished wordsmith.
Must read for any Christian, and an excellent rebuttal text for those who believe Christianity is a crutch, or man-made fiction.
CSL presented this as a series of BBC broadcasts in England at the height of WWII, during the blitzkrieg of 1942 and is incredibly relevant to today. Evil persists. Morphs, but persists. Truth persists. Doesn't morph. Persists. And truth is what CSL presents.
So far it's interesting how CSL focuses on the "mere" Christianity (you'll have to read it to find out what he means by that), deliberately avoiding debatable topics, and even ranking the importance of debatable topics. I'm still a bit wary, hoping he doesn't provide a mere vanilla Christianity. We'll see.
As I read it, I'm creating a series of study questions to use with my friend. Makes me wonder if such a study guide is available elsewhere. However, creating study questions may be more valuable to help work on getting us both to see "what's there" in this book. Which, honestly, I'm hoping to use as the principles for studying the scriptures, directly, itself.
