- Product Review (submitted on September 19, 2010):
There are some books you relish the thought of reviewing, and this has to be one of them. Mere Christianity is one of the books that has impacted me more than any other, and this audio version is excellent – I particularly rate that it’s read by a Brit – thank you!
This is effectively the edited transcript of a series of radio sessions C.S. Lewis gave on his journey through faith, and it reads very naturally. Some of the language is a bit dated now but it’s certainly not difficult to understand, and at the end of the day everything he says is just as relevant now as it was when he first spoke it. If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time there’s a good chance you’ve heard this book quoted on more than one occasion.
C.S. Lewis is profoundly logical. His analogies are absolutely spot-on, and I can’t imagine coming to the end of a chapter with him and thinking ‘I just don’t get how he’s come to that conclusion’. One or two parts of his thinking may come across as a bit ‘traditional’ to some modern readers/listeners, but if I were you I’d hold my tongue, take a swift dose of humility, and let C.S. Lewis do the speaking.
I really would recommend this to anyone. New Christians, non-Christians, people who have been Christians for decades – this book will encourage and challenge you.
I got this audiobook for free from christianaudio.com. I’m not required to give a positive review.
