- “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis
- Christian Theology
- Listened to the audiobook.
- 4/5 stars
Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis’s forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books – The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality – Mere Christianitybrings together what Lewis saw as the fundamental truths of the religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations, C.S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that “at the centre of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks the same voice.”
I figured it was time to dive into the CS Lewis Christian classics. I can’t actually remember why I selected Mere Christianity, except a few times I had attempted to dive in, but got distracted. So I decided to get the audiobook and listen to it pretty much non-stop.
I think the audiobook was actually the perfect way to read this. Mere Christianity is a collection of essays that Lewis read on the radio during World War 2 when asked to go on the radio and describe what Christians believe. I really liked this, and it gave me a ton to think about.
It feels weird to attempt to review this, only because it’s such an apologetics classic. I will say when I attempted to just read this I struggled a bit, however the audiobook really clarified it all for me. It took me a bit to get back into Lewis’s style of writing, but I think that if you’re interested in apologetics, then you really can’t miss this one.
