A Book Review, by Naomi Downing
Back cover: In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith
When I started reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ve heard really good things about it, so I gave it a shot. And you know what? I’m glad I did!
Mr. Lewis takes topics that Christians believe and breaks it down, explaining it in a way that is easier to understand, so that it would be easier to put in perspective.
To be perfectly honest, sometimes he did lose me in what he was talking about, and sometimes he’d throw out a British word that I didn’t even know existed, but that was only occasionally, and this book is still worth the read.
Even though the title has ‘Christian’ in it, it is really geared to anyone who has questions or needs explanations about Christianity.
C.S. Lewis is a talented author, and seems to have been a very smart man. I’d definitely recommend this book.
