We rated this book:

$24.95

C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: A Biography from Professor George M. Marsden is fascinating exploration of one of the most influential religious books of modern times. This book is part of a series from Princeton University Press which also explores the lives and times of other monumental religious books. C.S. Lewis is still one of the most important leaders of this age, at least for the hundreds of millions he kept Christianity relevant to with his non denominational Christian books. Some know him from his fiction and scholarship, but he also was a Christian Apologist who did not discard what he came to consider a true myth.

…A Biography does a fine job of putting his famous book in context. Much of it captured the talks Lewis made on the BBC radio during the tumultuous days of World War II. The book will satisfy those who are also looking for biographical treatment of Lewis who stood out as a fantasy writer because he was a religious representative with powerful reasoning, writing, and faith. This book will provide the reader with history, insight, biography, and perspective. As shown, Lewis argument was complicated, but accessible. He is also still with us.
