9780060652883: Mere Christianity (Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis)

In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis' legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.

Review:

In 1943, when hope and the moral fabric of society in Britain were threatened by the relentless inhumanity of global war, an Oxford don was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. Over half a century after the original lectures, the topic retains its urgency. Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation. As Mr Lewis clearly demonstrates, Christianity is not a religion of flitting angels and blind faith, but of free will, an innate sense of justice and the grace of God.

Review:

?If wit, and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels.?--The New Yorker?Apparently this oxford don and Cambridge professor is going to be around for a long time; he calls himself a dinosaur but he seems to speak to people where they are.?--Chad Walsh, The Washington Post Book World?C. S. Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half-convinced, for the good man who would like to be a Christian but finds his intellect getting in the way.?--Anthony Burgess, The New York Times Book Review?The point about reading C. S. Lewis is that he makes you sure, whatever you believe, that religion accepted or rejected means something extremely serious, demanding the entire energy of mind.?--Harper's?Lewis, perhaps more than any other twentieth-century writer, forced those who listened to him and read his works to come to terms with their own philosophical presuppositions.?--Los Angeles Times?He has a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting, and fascinating quest.?--Times Literary Supplement

"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"
