    I am in my 60's and read Mere Christianity for the first time this month. I am touched by the depth of C.S. Lewis' faith-discussion of theology in layman's terms, yet claiming he is not being theological. He should be considered a patriarch for the modern person's faith development.

  • Eve Horton

    Excellent - Lewis was one of the world's greatest Christian apologists. I think reading this book would be of great value to everyone.

  • Vahid Pazirandeh

    This is my first C.S. Lewis interaction. His examples / analogies are just amazing. He just makes sense. Powerful arguments and explanations of the position of a Christian, struggles, and theology. Just grab it already! Never a disappointment. =)

    I read this in High School and loved it, but 30 years later it was even better. I was surprised at how so many of Lewis's concepts have become part of my thinking. This is a great book. It is sometimes difficult to LISTEN to, as in some areas, it really needs to be studied and "chewed on" and cross-referenced with other texts. I listened to it twice (some sections more) and then decided to buy another book so I could take notes in the sides of the pages. Lewis's own advice on choosing what Christians ought to read, when asked, answered that there should be a ratio of 2:1 or at least 3:1 consisting of "old" well established books that have stood the test of time, books such as Augustine, Aquinas, Calvin, etc to a ratio of what is popular in Christian book stores. Mere Christianity, to me, is one of the well-established books of our faith. When looking for great words to build your faith, this is not fluff, it is the meat and potatoes of our diet.

  • Timothy Amey

    As with most of Lewis' work, this is a masterpiece and well worth the investment of time. The age in which it was written does date the language, but the truth is apparent through the universal relevance of the material. Everything he writes about was true in that time, and is true today. A must read for every Christian.

  • Bruce Bachmeier

    I listened to it three times! It's better to read, but also a great listen.

  • Edward Hayes

    Fascinating presentation of the Christian position. Particularly valuable for its elucidation of the Cardinal virtues. However, written from a clear historical context of the mid twentieth century and this gives it an added dimension in terms of the arguments used. Excellent use of images and sybols to explain matters.

  • Rachel Hambrick

    C. S. Lewis is unlike any other Christian writer you will ever encounter. Listening to him is more like listening to a trusted, wise friend than a "church person." He tackles the questions that many people, Christians included, are afraid to broach (c.f. another of his works, "The Problem of Pain") There is an appeal to rational, logical thinking that too often is brushed away in such literature. I am a better person for having read this, and count myself among those who love God with all their mind, as well as heart.

  • Jeremy

    Classic thought provoking CS Lewis book. A must for every Christian out there.

    This was typical C. S. Lewis. Direct and to the point. Very enlightening.
