Synopsis:
[Audiobook CASSETTE Edition]

[This is a Boxed Set Edition.]

[Read by Geoffrey Howard - aka - Ralph Cosham]

*With Special Bonus Feature: ''The Abolition of Man'', read by Simon Vance

Mere Christianity is C. S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine on 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 Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of his 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 center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice.''

*This recording also includes Lewis' erudite essay ''The Abolition of Man'', in which he eloquently argues for a better standard of public education that would include reading and writing lessons grounded in moral reasoning.

Review:
In 1943 Great Britain, when hope and the moral fabric of society were threatened by the relentless inhumanity of global war, an Oxford don was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. Over half a century after the original lectures, the topic retains it urgency. Expanded into book form, Mere Christianity never flinches as it sets out a rational basis for Christianity and builds an edifice of compassionate morality atop this foundation. As Mr. Lewis clearly demonstrates, Christianity is not a religion of flitting angels and blind faith, but of free will, an innate sense of justice and the grace of God.

Review

Review:
Mere Christianity is the most popular of C. S. Lewis’s works of nonfiction, with several million copies sold worldwide. Heard first as radio addresses and then published as three separate books, this book brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcast talks in which he set out simply to "explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times." It is a collection of scintillating brilliance which remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader, and confirms C. S. Lewis’s reputation as one of the leading Christian writers and thinkers of our age.
