Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Logical and hard to argue with."

    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.

    "A very reasonable case for Christianity"

    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!! 😁

    "Apologetics for everyone"

    One of the simplest and most convincing books written about the Christian religion. A must read for theists and non - theists alike.

    "Christian classic"

    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."
    Where does Mere Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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 !!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mere Christianity the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way that C.S.Lewis always relates his faith to the real world.


    What does Geoffrey Howard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The human voice narrating a story brings a new dimension to the storytelling process compared to if you just read the book.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Jesus, as relevant today as He was yesterday.

    Where does Mere Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As it is only my second book and the other was not good, this is the best I have heard.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    I love it!

    Geoffrey Howard is a very competent narrator and this book is the most elucidative book (about christianity) I've read.

    "Worth reading regardless on your religious disposition"

    Really good book, the philosophical and moral angle CS Lewis uses at the beginning of the book is refreshing and helpful. If you're a Christian it allows to see things from a philosophical and very relatable point of view that you can share with non-christians and other christians alike. Towards the later half of the books Lewis's thoughts on sexual desire are interesting.
