    I had to stop reading this, it was making me ill It may be that every single sentence in this book is either wrong or offensive or inane or all three Here s a passage from page 45 CS is talking about what he calls Dualism i.e Manichaeism whereby the existence of evil is explained by there being two equal forces in the Universe which are in perpetual contention, the Good one and the Bad one CS says If Dualism is true then the Bad Power must be a being who likes badness for its own sake I had to stop reading this, it was making me ill It may be that every single sentence in this book is either wrong or offensive or inane or all three Here s a passage from page 45 CS is talking about what he calls Dualism i.e Manichaeism whereby the existence of evil is explained by there being two equal forces in the Universe which are in perpetual contention, the Good one and the Bad one CS says If Dualism is true then the Bad Power must be a being who likes badness for its own sake But in reality we have no experience of anyone liking badness just because it is bad The nearest we can get to it is in cruelty But in real life people are cruel for one of two reasons either because they are sadists, that is, because they have a sexual perversion which makes cruelty a cause of sensual pleasure to them, or else for the sake of something they are going to get out of it money, or power, or safety But pleasure, money, power and safety are all, as...

    I finished listening to this book early this morning, a little before seven I could not sleep, and as I lay in the darkness in need of some comfort and company, I thought that I should go ahead and finish it I am glad I did I am perhaps a bit biased I have always liked Lewis, ever since I read The Chronicles of Narnia in high school My liking deepened for him when I saw the movie Shadowlands Something about his life called to me I have since done research on him and his journey from athei I finished listening to this book early this morning, a little before seven I could not sleep, and as I lay in the darkness in need of some comfort and company, I thought that I should go ahead and finish it I am glad I did I am perhaps a bit biased I have always liked Lewis, ever since I read The Chronicles of Narnia in high school My liking deepened for him when I saw the movie Shadowlands Something about his life called to me I have since done research on him and his journey from atheism to fervent Christian belief I cannot deny how inspiring I find his life.I started this book years ago, and put it down, not out of disinterest, but because of other priorities at the time As far as I got, which was not far, I appreciated his methodical, clear approach I always intended to finish it I actually own two copies, one on my Kindle, and one paperback copy When I saw this at the library on audiobook, I decided to listen to it That was a good decision.Mere Christianity is a book on the fundamental...

    Read it, even for the last chapter alone Most people have no idea about what Christianity is That is the reason that CS Lewis book exists If you are looking for a book that will convince you to take the leap of faith and become a Christian like so many 1 star reviewers who said they were unconvinced then don t waste your time No book will convince you However, if you are looking for the facts about real Christianity not as a religion, but as a relationship then you can t do much better Read it, even for the last chapter alone Most people have no idea about w...

    Lewis is brilliant Here s a quote from the book that s never left my head I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him I m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don t accept His claim to be God That is the one thing we must not say A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher He would either be a lunatic on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg o Lewis is brilliant Here s a quote from the book that s never left my head I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him I m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don t accept His claim to be God That is the one thing we must not say A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher He would either be a l...

    It is no wonder that Christians should revere a miracle working carpenter I think one must be the son of a god to build an attic before the rest of the house.There is no fundamental basis for Lewis arguments I was hoping to find something thought provoking and convincing, but it just felt like the same old ideas Aquinas and Descartes bandied around These are no longer sufficient in a world of thermodynamics and evolution.Lewis has some skill and intellect, but the way he meanders about duali It is no wonder that Christians should revere a miracle working carpenter I think one must be the son of a god to build an attic before the rest of the house.There is no fundamental basis for Lewis arguments I was hoping to find something thought provoking and convincing, but it just felt like the same old ideas Aquinas and Descartes bandied around These are no longer sufficient in a world of thermodynamics and evolution.Lewis has some skill and intellect, but the way he meanders about duality, truth, social darwinism, pathetic fallacy, comparative anthropology, and scientific process tendstowards self justification than any profundity.Lewis clearly wants to believe, and wants to bolster and justify those beliefs, but he never overcomes a rea...

    I read this for the first time a long while ago, and then again in December of 2007 Each time I read it I find something new It s fairly amazing to be able to point to a page and say, That was me a year ago, a month ago, a day ago This is not a new set of instructions on how to be a Christian it s a very straightforward explanation of the roots of the Christian faith, a naked package of easy to understand information which builds logically from the very beginning It starts off with an appea I read this for the first time a long while ago, and then again in December of 2007 Each time I read it I find something new It s fairly amazing to be able to point to a page and say, That was me a year ago, a month ago, a day ago This is not a new set of instructions on how to be a Christian it s a very straightforward explanation of the roots of the Christian faith, a naked package of easy to understand information which builds logically from the very beginning It starts off with an appeal to every man s human nature, then goes about covering every base as to why man s nature is the way it is Lewis is careful to present each alternative path of question and then refute it using logic and reason which should appease the skeptic and the doubtful.The book is full of good humor and amiable narrative, but Lewis doesn t compromise or sugar coat the cornerstones of th...

    People either love this book or hate it Without passing judgment I don t see how people can actually hate it Seriously C.S Lewis simply breaks down the fundamental truths of Christianity Personally I love how he goes beyond all the denominations, beyond who sright, beyond who swrong and finds that common thread they all seem to follow From there it s a real eye opener.However, I do have to say the book is so rich with philosophy I found myself reading sent...

    What an astounding, impressive, fulfilling read I am not normally a non fiction reader unless it is a good historical piece or biography those I will lap up But a book on religion As a pretty dedicated church goer myself, I must candidly say that unless the book is actual scripture itself, it might as well be one of those desperately snobbish self help books full of zippy motivation quotes and the same principles you find in all other books of the same genre, just worded slightly differen What an astounding, impressive, fulfilling read I am not normally a non fiction reader unless it is a good historical piece or biography those I will lap up But a book on religion As a pretty dedicated church goer myself, I must candidly say that unless the book is actual scripture itself, it might as well be one of those desperately snobbish self help books full of zipp...

    My second non fiction book by C.S.Lewis 1898 1963 and, although I liked A Grief Observed , I also liked this one.This book Mere Christianity published in 1953 was based on the transcript of the BBC radio broadcast that Lewis gave at Oxford during World War II 1941 1944 It was a hit because at that point, Lewis had already published a number of fiction and non fiction books including Out of the Silent Planet 1938 , The Problem of Pain 1940 and The Screwtape Letter 1942 What added My second non fiction book by C.S.Lewis 1898 1963 and, although I liked A Grief Observed , I also liked this one.This book Mere Christianity published in 1953 was based on the transcript of the BBC radio broadcast that Lewis gave at Oxford during World War II 1941 1944 It was a hit because at that point, Lewis had already published a number of fiction and non fiction books including Out of the Silent Planet 1938 , The Problem of Pain 1940 and The Screwtape Letter 1942 What added to the appeal was that Lewis was an agnostic professor and was only converted back to Christianity Anglican at the age of 32 through the influence of the literary group called the Inklings where he and fellow Oxf...
