In Mere Christianity readers will learn about classic topics such as the existence of God and original sin, as well as more nuanced concepts including morality and faith. Written in a composed and professional style, Lewis illustrates the power of Christian convictions with clarity and precision on each page.
Whether you're already familiar with Lewis's work or venturing into it for the first time; whether you're drawn to explore your own beliefs or understand another's perspective—Mere Christianity is essential reading for people of all backgrounds interested in deepening their understanding of Christianity and its eternal truths.
As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography.” (Books & Culture)
“C. S. Lewis understood, like few in the past century, just how deeply faith is both imaginative and rational.” (Christianity Today)
“It is not surprising that Lewis’s time-proven views are still flourishing while most other mid-20th-century works are nearly neglected.” (Wall Street Journal)
I read this book shortly before converting from agnosticism to Catholicism. I recall that I regarded it as a very thoughtful, rich, and simple introduction to "mere" Christianity. I would recommend it for anyone whose knowledge in that field, or ability to reason against atheism, is lacking.
