Mere Christianity


Description

One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide.

The book brings together C. S. Lewis's legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, 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, Mere Christianity provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to absorb a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith.

Testimonials


“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, award-winning poet

Quotes


A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.
You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.

About the author


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 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 Mere Christianity, 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 been transformed into three major motion pictures.


Reviews

“As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography.”

Books and Culture

“C. S. Lewis understood, like few in the past century, just how deeply faith is both imaginative and rational.”

Christianity Today

“He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.”
