"He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest." Times Literary Supplement "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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the first topics attended to by Lewis is the law of human nature. The message that is delivered in this section appears as if it had been written in direct response to the pages that Richard Dawkins dedicated to this very subject in his recently published work The God Delusion, and it appears as if Lewis' work would hold its own ground in this hypothetical debate, even though it has surrendered the advantage of time. It may not be that Lewis' ideas on this matter are any more valid than those of other great scholar's, instead the value of this work is established in the explicit and fluid manner in which he elaborates each point that is made.
By the end of this work one will have read about what Christians believe, Christian behavior, and also experience a taste of theology. This has to be one of the most poignant works on Christianity, in general, that has been written in the past one hundred years. C.S. Lewis possessed a great literary gift and put it to good use in writing Mere Christianity. Between the message that is passed on through this work and the descriptive illustrations that are utilized to explain some of the more difficult concepts of Christianity; this book is a must read for every Christian. This work can also be appreciated by the secular population, if not only, for the craftsmanship which went into every page.
"Mere Christianity" is a must read for Christians. It addresses the adversity of the Christian Religion by focusing in on "mere" truths. We would all be better Christians if we remember to remember the main POINT. Thank you Amazon for this excellent purchase.
We have all quoted CS Lewis or read a quotation from this volume somewhere. I always love to read the primary source if I can. Get this volume, you would not be sorry.
