CS Lewis' Mere Christianity

Mere Christianity

One of C.S Lewis' most influential pieces of work, Mere Christianity has become a corner stone of modern Christian apologetics. Originally broadcast on the radio as a lecture during World War Two, C.S Lewis would eventually turn the transcripts from the radio broadcast into three individual pamphlets, these in turn would be later compiled to create the iconic book that is Mere Christianity.

A former Atheist himself, Lewis once exclaimed "Had God designed the world, it would not be a world so frail and faulty as we see." Later, after his conversion, he said, "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." There was an obvious change that took place in Lewis' thinking. Mere Christianity is the reasoning behind this tremendous change.

Mere Christianity deals with the basic beliefs upheld by all Christians, and on purpose, Lewis avoids singling out any one denomination, instead focusing on fundamental teachings of the Christian faith.
