[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.

About the Author:

C. S. LEWIS (1898-1963), born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim and continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.

Review:

''He [Lewis] has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting and fascinating quest.'' -- Times Literary Supplement

''(Narrator) Geoffrey Howard's (aka - Ralph Cosham) performance is superb; he is clear and unhurried, giving just the right emphasis and/or inflection . . . Whether or not one agrees with Lewis' arguments, it is a pleasure to hear such a skillful reading of an eloquent work.'' --Library Journal

''Few authors can command a spot on the bestseller charts for close to ten years. There are even fewer authors, perhaps just one, who can do that long after their death . . . [Mere Christianity] continues to resonate.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Mere Christianity is well-suited to being read . . . [it is] written in an informal, conversational style . . . (Narrator) Howard (aka-Cosham) sounds like a friendly academic and reads with appropriate pauses and emphasis. His subdued Oxbridge accent is inviting and pleasant, showing none of the pretension one might expect from an Oxford don.'' --AudioFile

''[In 'The Abolition of Man'], (Narrator) Robert Whitfield's (aka- Simon Vance) disciplined and well-modulated voice has an appealingly confident quality.'' --AudioFile
