About the Author:

Mary Anne Phemister is an author and serves as a docent at the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College. Andrew Lazo holds a Master of Arts degree in Modern British Literature from Rice University, where he was Jacob K. Javits Fellow in the Humanities. He has done scholarly research at the Marion E. Wade Center, and is a frequent speaker about C. S. Lewis and the Inklings.


“The distinguishing excellence of Mere Christians is its scope. There is something here for everyone. The range of ways in which the contributors to the book have been influenced by C. S. Lewis is as varied as the contributors themselves. The result is two for the price of one — an engaging fireside chat with fifty-five people telling their story and a many-sided portrait of C. S. Lewis and his writings.”
— Leland Ryken, Clyde S. Kilby Professor of English, Wheaton College

“This excellent collection of testimonials to Lewis’ enduring influence is unusual for its depth and its breadth — depth for how profoundly his work continues to touch and turn around lives, and breadth for how many and how diverse this Lewis-affected population is.”
— Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

“I believe that Lewis would be pleased by the pieces in this collection. The heartfelt contributors notwithstanding, it is evident that their gratitude is ultimately for their life-changing encounter with the divine as Lewis primarily intended.”
— Marjorie Lamp Mead, associate director, Marion E. Wade Center, Wheaton College
