Product Description

No one would dare to suggest that C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity is anything less than a brilliant explanation and defense of the Faith. But as robust, wise and ardent as it is, still it is incomplete. It begins our banquet at the table of the Lord, but doesn't take us all the way to the final course.

That is what Dwight Longenecker's new book, More Christianity, does. It fills our plates with the fullness of the Christian Faith found only in the Catholic Church. Lest someone think Longenecker is presuming to piggyback or cash in on Lewis' work, or to set himself up as Lewis' successor, that is not the case. What he does - and does brilliantly - is present the doctrine of the Church with succinct explanations of topics that arise in Catholic/Protestant discussion: the Marian dogmas, the papacy, the Mass, purgatory, the communion of saints, the rosary and more.

In Longenecker's skilled hands, More Christianity rounds out the meal so deliciously served up by Lewis in Mere Christianity.

Dwight Longenecker was brought up an Evangelical, studied at the fundamentalist Bob Jones University, and later was ordained an Anglican priest in England. After ten years in the Anglican ministry as a curate, a chaplain at Cambridge, and a country parson, in 1995 Dwight was received into full communion with the Catholic Church. He has published in numerous religious magazines and papers in the UK, Ireland, and the USA, writing on film and theology, apologetics, Biblical commentary and Catholic culture.

    I have no complaints about the quality of the product shipped by ChristianBook.com, only the content of the book itself. C.S. Lewis's original "Mere Christianity" is an excellent work based on what Lewis felt was the essence of the Gospel without the religious trappings, thus "mere" Christianity. Longenecker's definition of the "mere" in "Mere Christianity" is that the "mere" was minimal Christianity. Longenecker then adds back in all the Catholic religious trappings. Through the twisting of the Scriptures, torturous word games, endless semantics gymnastics, and huge extra Biblical assumptions, Longenecker attempts to explain and explain away the bizarre aspects of Catholic Doctrine, which were quite obviously the result of the merging of Christianity and pagan ideas. Even though Longenecker tries every way possible to explain the bizarre beliefs about Mary and what the Catholics consider "Saints", these beliefs are nothing more than Polytheism with an array of gods and goddesses. Longenecker constantly tries to justify the praying to and veneration of Mary and their lesser gods, the "Saints" as praying with rather than praying to, which is nothing more than a weak word game. The doctrines of religious works, rituals, and endless hoops that must be jumped through are too numerous to list here. This work minimizes Jesus Christ and what was accomplished at the Cross, and instead lifts up Catholic gods and goddesses and Catholic doctrine. This is a good book if you are doing research on the differences of Catholic doctrine and Biblical Doctrine, but not much truth here if that is what you are seeking.
