One of the most popular introductions to Christian faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C. S. Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to "explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times." Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many de-nominations, Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. It is a collection of scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader and at the same time confirms C. S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898 1963) was a professor at Oxford and Cambridge. An atheist until he was 30, he is remembered as a Christian apologist who expressed the great truths of his faith with penetrating logic and winsome wit. Lewis wrote more than forty books, including The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Mere Christianity.

Praise For…

“As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography.”
