Product Description

Mere Christianity is one of the best books of Christian apologetics ever written. Arguably, no book other than the Bible itself has had as much influence for the cause of the gospel over the past 60 years. The story of how that message came to be created, during the rigors of World War II in England, is fascinating in and of itself. But it also addresses a very important question: How do we present the gospel effectively to a culture that has Christian foundations but has become largely secularized and ignorant of biblical truth?

C.S. Lewis and Mere Christianity develops the circumstances of Lewis's life and the inner workings of the BBC. It also goes into greater detail about life in the middle of war against Nazi Germany, and Lewis's series of broadcasts that extended into 1944.

Author Info

Paul McCusker did extensive research on Lewis and the history behind Mere Christianity while writing the script for the Radio Theatre production of that story. Paul had also previously written the script for the Radio Theatre production of Lewis's The Screwtape Letters, and he then wrote an annotated version of the book for its publisher, HarperOne. Likewise, he scripted the Radio Theatre production of The Chronicles of Narnia.

    If you like C. S. Lewis and/or history, this is a great book! "Mere Christianity" is probably my favorite C. S. Lewis writing. I love that Paul McCusker has written a biography to give readers a little more background to the situations that influenced Lewis' writing. Easy to read, well researched, awesome resource! Definitely one that should be on your reading list!

    Disclaimer: The publisher gave me a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Have you, as I have, been blessed by the classic Mere Christianity? Probably the greatest apologetic book I know of, and certainly grist for the mill for your deepest thoughts, the story of the series of events that precipitated this volume is fascinating.

    Can you imagine what this book proposal must have looked like laying on the publisher's desk? A book not about the whole of C. S. Lewis's life, but just the the particular years when this classic was birthed, as well as the horrors of war in the blitz on London. The background of the BBC is heavily worked into the story too. Believe it or not, this improbable volume works.

    In short, Lewis gave several sets of talks on the BBC during the worst of the war in England that captured the attention of listeners at a time when religious broadcasting as a whole fell on bad times. In no time at all, Lewis had more correspondence than he could handle. Here were writings (broadcasts) that went beyond the trivial or any of the hokum that was simply insufficient in the carnage of war. It resonated in a time of great need.

    Beyond the confluence of factors that made Mere Christianity so influential, this volume works on the level of biography as well. There is the war, its agonies, and impact on lives that is well described. Then there is C.S. Lewis the man: his industrious output, his tenderness, his family issues, and his humility. You like him better, even if, as me, he has a few beliefs you could not follow.

    This book is a pleasant, worthwhile read!

    I very much enjoyed this insightful look into the making of Mere Christianity. CS Lewis at War provided a rare look into the heart and mind of this great, unassuming author and his obedience to God in uncertain and difficult times. I had always thought that I had read Mere Christianity because I was so familiar with his other works but hearing it read by Doug Gresham made me realize I had not. I am blown away by the depth of his insight and understanding of the heart & mind of Christ.
