Mere Christianity is C. S. Lewis’ forceful and accessible doctrine on Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books—The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality—Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of his religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity’s many denominations, C. S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that “at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice.”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The most influential book of the most influential Christian apologist of the century.” National Review, 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century
“Few authors can command a spot on the bestseller charts for close to ten years. There are even fewer authors, perhaps just one, who can do that long after their death…[Mere Christianity] continues to resonate.” Publishers Weekly
“Ralph Cosham’s performance is superb; he is clear and unhurried, giving just the right emphasis and/or inflection…Whether or not one agrees with Lewis’ arguments, it is a pleasure to hear such a skillful reading of an eloquent work.” Library Journal
Mere Christianity is well-suited to being read…[it is] written in an informal, conversational style…[Cosham] sounds like a friendly academic and reads with appropriate pauses and emphasis. His subdued Oxbridge…accent is inviting and pleasant, showing none of the pretension one might expect from an Oxford don.” AudioFile
“This recording captures Lewis’ finely crafted arguments and opinions…[Cosham’s] melodic, subtly British-accented voice could easily have been Lewis’ own.” Today’s Librarian

Author

Author Bio: C. S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent PlanetThe Four LovesThe Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
