2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many times, but never outdone. The book is comprised of the legendary radio talks which he gave during the war years.
Mere Christianity brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcasts from 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 denominations, C. S. Lewis provides an unequalled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. This scintillating collection confirms C. S. Lewis’s reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age.

"He has quite a unique power for making theology an attractive, exciting, and fascinating quest." (Times Literary Supplement)
C.S Lewis gives such a logical progression of thought in this book that even as a believer, I'm even more convinced. I'd recommend this for anyone beginning a search for truth and for anyone who just wants to understand their faith better.
It is not so much what to think as opposed to 'how to think'. This case for Christianity fairly looks at both cause and effect of decisions taken in either direction and shows our moral standing, cause and beliefs for those decisions.
The performance is well spoken, paced and measured. The tone keeps the listener engaged easily.
Am definitely going to listen to this again!! 😁
Really good overview of what it means to be a Christian. Good is doing extraordinary things with us. Some simple and powerful arguments for the obvious existence of God as the creator of all things. The narrators voice is just a little intense and devoid of feeling and dulls the power of the text, but it's clear and I had no problem listening to it.
"Superb - listened twice."
Mere Christianity rates as one of the clearest convincing explanations for the Christian faith I have yet to read. I can see why it is a classic.
"Really good read !!"
I enjoyed the insight that C.S. Lewis has into the Christian life and is not afraid of using his intellect to get that across.
I like the way that C.S.Lewis always relates his faith to the real world.
The human voice narrating a story brings a new dimension to the storytelling process compared to if you just read the book.
Jesus, as relevant today as He was yesterday.
"Help to understand"
As it is only my second book and the other was not good, this is the best I have heard.
This book helps Christians and non Christians to really look into why it makes sense to believe in God.The writer goes into real life things that can be used as proof of God. Great writing and delivered very well.
This book re-engineered by thinking and helped strengthen my faith in God. It was great!
"A life changing experience!"
I love it!
Geoffrey Howard is a very competent narrator and this book is the most elucidative book (about christianity) I've read.
The audio version made the book more enjoyable.
Truly covers everything, there's nothing CS Lewis can't explain and he does it all with logic and real world examples (and allot of metaphors)
A book that every christian should read. C. S. Lewis is definitely one of the greatest christian thinkers of modern age.
this is a timeless collection it is challenging and at times intensely so. Lewis'imagiative explanation and explorations aee still relevant 70 years on
love cs Lewis. explains himself brilliantly and has wonderfully honest and insightful ideas. read it. Biblical truths as well.
As inspirational and challenging as all of his books, C.S. Lewis cuts to the sometimes uncomfortably uncompromising crux of Christianity in its truest form
