Just a pleasure to listen to
CS Lewis' conversational style, clever insights and meaningful discussion of what Christianity means and what Christians believe is simply a pleasure to listen to. I laughed, I thought, and I genuinely enjoyed this whole book.

The reasoning of Lewis at his best
3 short books packaged in one. The reasoning here in Mere Christianity is Lewis at his best It is not too much to say that Lewis' insight is timeless.

Highly Recommended
CS Lewis is an author who’s writings have a wide range of appeals, Christian and non-christian, male/female, adult children, and the appeal of his writings continue on 50 years after they were written.

I actually listened to the audiobook and read the paperback together – this helped me to retain a lot of the material I think. I actually find myself quoting from this book a lot – so something must have stuck.

I find in my interactions with people that a lot of misunderstandings and grief can be avoided if we just took the time to stop and think. This book will help you do that. This book is more of a marathon that a sprint. I found myself having to read one chapter and then put it down to enable my mind to grasp what had been said and to ponder the implications. This is actually one thing that I did not like about the audio book version. The files were very big and covered many chapters, and I found it hard to find my place once I stopped and tried to start again. Perhaps the audio files could be made into chapter length files – I think this would help a lot.

The narrator on the audio book was a good choice as he actually sounds like I would imagine CS Lewis to sound, and that brought it more to life.

Mere Christianity is a book that is suitable for a non-Christian or new Christian to read because it explains Christianity well, but not from a Biblical stance, but rather from logic and the world around us. It is also suitable for mature Christians, as the depth of thought is challenging.

I will probably read this book over and over during the rest of my life, and thoroughly recommend anyone else to do the same. Unfortunately most people just won’t read it at all, for whatever reason. They are the ones that will miss out.

Geoffrey Howard is the narrator for this audio book. I haven't read the book itself yet, and have it sitting on my bookshelf. Unfortunately, as I am listening to the narrator's presentation of this text, I find myself becoming disinterested in reading the book. There are two parts to this. The first is simply that it sounds more philosophical, of which at the moment I'm not terribly interested in. I'm sure, however, that I'll find that interest piqued again in the near future. The second part, sadly, is the narration of this audio book. I know that I have a history of finding narrators to be bland or mechanical, but it is an honest issue to present. If audio books should move forward as a viable alternative to ingest the material successfully, then the narration needs to improve vastly.

Mere Christianity is one of those...
Mere Christianity is one of those books that you hear about all of the time. So many have pointed out the simplicity of his arguments while referring to the depth of his conclusions in the same breath. Even the reviews already given on this site applaud this work.

I could sing the praises of this book as well because I felt that there were little light bulbs coming on as I encountered each new point as Lewis completed a few circuits in my mind, but I feel that I need to mention more than the book. The fact that I encountered this book in audio form has played into my enjoyment of the book.

Mere Christianity was originally a series of radio broadcasts. So as I listened to the recording, I almost felt like I was listening to Lewis giving those original broadcasts.

I highly recommend this book, but even more highly I recommend the audio version of this book.
