This hugely popular international bestseller is being repackaged and rebranded as the leading title in the C.S. Lewis Signature Classics range.
One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. The timeless questions of spirituality which Lewis raises will have resonance with a new generation of readers.
Mere Christianity brings together 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 denominations, C.S. Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. This scintiallating collection confirms C.S. Lewis’s reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

“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 NorrisAbout the Author:
