Description

Basic things like “don't kill your neighbor” “don't steal other peoples' stuff” “don't rape” “stand up for what is right” “be nice to others” etc. S. Lewis does not justify his explanations well enough - that there is not enough of a burden of proof that he has fulfilled. Mere Christianity explains and elucidates basic Christian doctrines and principles in a most genius matter.

They speak to me, and perhaps will speak to others, regardless of how they currently feel about Christianity. As admirable as this novel is, he does preach a few beliefs and interpretations were common back then but are not shared with as many nowadays. However, far too often Churches end up preaching a confused gospel that states something like 'it's a little bit of faith and the rest is you doing stuff to make you good enough'.There must be something unnatural about the rule of wives over husbands, because the wives themselves are half ashamed of it and despise the husbands whom they rule. Overall, worth reading just to see how little has to be offered to be heralded as powerful amongst the religious. The book is full of good humor and amiable narrative, but Lewis doesn't compromise or sugar-coat the cornerstones of the Christian faith. I’d read this piecemeal through high school and college (including a Lewis tutorial in Oxford during my year abroad), then the ladies of my extended family did an online book discussion through five months of last year. But even with the certain issues I disagree with Lewis on, there is still a lot of wisdom and truth to be learned from this book.

The American pastor Tim Keller referred to his apologetic The Reason for God (2012) as " Mere Christianity for dummies". This is one problem I have with evangelists who are so popular that fame has already gone up to their blown-up heads. I have given six or seven copies to my friends who have been anxious to know the answers, not pushed at them , they wanted to find out!At first I was very confused about some things, there was a clash in my beliefs--what is sin, confusion surrounding sex, and what God exactly is.

Brutal honesty is as much a part of the Christian faith as the comfort is in knowing that while the walk in following Christ is a tough road, we do it not alone, but through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, who lives in us and empowers us to follow him. Surely we would, us avuncular old shitbags in cardigans puffing on our pipes and living in the real world as we do. Lewis in a Time of War: The World War II Broadcasts That Riveted a Nation and Became the Classic Mere Christianity . Anyway, why make a point of changing morality though out history, and progress made in the general zeitgeist? The book, Hooper continued, shows Lewis's ability of providing a comprehensible guidance of the Christian beliefs/theology to everyone, [40] and "has become synonymous with Lewis".In this book, he chronicles his journey from devout atheist to committed Christian, recounting each step with his original assumption, then recording his intellectual journey through each idea to it's end result. The language is a bit archaic, and some of the chapters may need to be re-read several times before finally grasping the content. He would go to friends' barbecues and fry steaks and chuckle to himself "if only they knew about my incest family in the basement! I feel that my future on this path is fulfilling, and I hope that anybody who is confused about their spiritual beliefs, or anyone who wants to take a peak at Christianity and see if it is right for them, should check this book out. Reppert continued that Lewis, in his autobiography, Surprised by Joy (1955), realised Christianity rests on far more than solely reason.

Lewis makes an interesting attempt to explain how God knows our future because he himself does not exist in time - he created it - and all events from creation to the end of time are there in his ever present mind.However, I did not encounter some of the passages that he enclosed in quotation marks ("___") in this book. I was never that well versed in the subtleties of philosophical debate, and it is true that my brain has been progressively enfeebled by a constant dripfeed of Old Peculiar, chicken tikka masala and Italian exploitation movies, yet even I can see that this adds up to a pile of shit of Brobdingnagian proportions. In the preface to later editions, Lewis described his desire to avoid contested theological doctrine by focusing on core beliefs of the Christian Faith. 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. So, taken with a grain of salt - this book does provide an fascinating look into the core beliefs of the Christian religion.
