“As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography.” (Books & Culture)
“C. S. Lewis understood, like few in the past century, just how deeply faith is both imaginative and rational.” (Christianity Today)
“It is not surprising that Lewis’s time-proven views are still flourishing while most other mid-20th-century works are nearly neglected.” (Wall Street Journal)
From the Back Cover
One of the most popular introductions to Christian faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C. S. Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks 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 de-nominations, Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. It is a collection of scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader and at the same time confirms C. S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

- 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.
Go buy this classic somewhere else.
The book is horribly formatted: it is missing breaks, indentations, chapter headings, etc. There is no variation in font or type size to distinguish between sections...it looks as though the text were copy-pasted into an editing program (which was not used to edit) and printed.
I have included a couple of photos to illustrate what I am complaining about.
This shabbiness has rendered a classic unreadable. 1 star for the low price only.
