Mere Christianity

Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis No. 7

(1)

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.

"As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography." Books & Culture
Portrait

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

What is Christianity really about?
von Friederike Amann aus Bürs am 27.02.2011

Lewis, a former atheist, talks about Christianity by means of logical and reasonable arguments in four different books. Book one is about the law of the human nature. Lewis states that behind the objective moral law that is inside all humans and which we are all not completely following there is a greater Something or Someone for it has to be declared by something or someone outside the law. He continues in book two with explaining who Christians say this Something or Someone is – the God of Christianity who alone gives meaning and who alone is good; and this goodness leads us to repentance. The practical application is the main theme of book three; Lewis writes about morality in different aspects, the seven virtues and some other topics like Christian marriage. He concludes with the more theoretical, based on theology, book four, which is about the Trinity, what the roles of God the Father, the Son and the Spirit are, finishing up with what it means that God lives in me and through me, that I live with Him and that He is transforming me in order to make me perfect. I enjoyed reading this book. While it’s not that easy to read and understand, it’s definitely worth it. Lewis writes in a very logical way – he gives arguments and reasons for what he states, giving examples and sharing little stories. He challenged me a lot through his writings, to think about what I believe and really deal with it. “Mere Christianity” is a book for people who want to deal honestly with questions of life and faith.
