Mere Christianity

With a New Introd. of the three Books "Broadcast Talks", "Christian Behaviour" and "Beyond Personality"

2012 marks the 60th Anniversary of the publication of C.S.Lewis's classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many time, but never bettered. The book is compiled of the legendary radio talks which he gave during the war years.

Portrait
Der Literaturhistoriker C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) betätigte sich in seinem Hauptberuf als Hochschullehrer in Oxford und später in Cambridge in einer erstaunlichen Vielfalt literarischer Gattungen. Nicht nur in seinen Essays, sondern auch in seinen fantastischen und mystischen Erzählungen kommt dabei seine tiefe christliche Überzeugung zum Ausdruck.
Clive Staples Lewis, known as Jack to his friends, was born in 1898. Lewis and his good friend J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of the Inklings, an informal writers club that met at a local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewiss fascination with fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends, coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood, led him to write.
Zitat
'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

What is Christianity really about?

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.
