Only average at best. I expected more. I guess the arguments here might be useful for immature or new believers but somebody with any sophistication in their faith are going to find this mostly familiar ground. Lewis' arguments are interesting but I don't think as self evident as he believes. I think you already have to have made the leap to belief for the subsequent "logic" to stick.

This isn't going to convince anyone who doesn't already believe in Christ. Arguments from logic on belief are by definition a waste of time. Strictly for believers or those seriously wondering about Christianity. And heavens, don't use it to argue with Atheists or Agnostics.

It's pretty dry as well so don't expect anything too exciting, but the writing is good.

I also have to point out that the book is marred by some pretty dated views on social issues related to sex and gender. This will certainly drive some people away.

I guess I would still recommend it. Read it slow: little bits at a time. I'm not as enthusiastic about it as I was before I read it. I'm not sure why it is considered such a great book. I certainly have read more inspiring fare that covers basically the same ground.

Most of this book is full of Lewis's typical wisdom, so this would be 4 stars, but in the last two chapters he says that even harmless innocent pleasures aren't really harmless and innocent. Lewis says they distract you from doing what you should be doing as a Christian. This is not in the Bible as far as I know, and in any case is insane and evil. ( )

Essential reading for every person with even a passing interest in Christianity. Possibly my favorite book. Stupendous. ( )

This book opened my mind a little bit and should be required reading for discussions about Christianity. It offers a deeper explanation of core Christian beliefs than any I'd ever been offered at CCD or on the subway. C.S. Lewis is a clever writer on any subject, and this book is full of great analogies and logic you can follow, if not totally accept. This book hasn't turned me into a Christian, but it's piqued my interest in reading more about religion in general.

I picked the paperback up at Goodwill and I don't think I've ever spent a better $1. ( )

Mere Christianity is full of memorable and powerful revelations that elucidate the foundations of Christian theology, our relationship to God, and the meaning of life. Only C.S. Lewis could summarize such broad concepts so eloquently without coming across as overly-religious or preachy. His extraordinary ability to focus on the core tenets of Christianity and explain them with remarkable ease reinforces the wide appeal of his writings.

Regarding man's relationship with and need for God:

God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just not good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

Regarding true happiness and freedom:

The happiness which God designs for His higher creatures is the happiness of being freely, voluntarily united to Him and each other in an ecstasy of love and delight compared with which the most rapturous love between a man and a woman on this earth is mere milk and water. And for that they must be free.

On pursuing truth and finding comfort in our lives:

In religion, as in war and everything else, comfort is one thing you cannot get by looking for it. If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth -- only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with and, in the end, despair.

In a world that is often hostile to religion, particularly the Christian faith, Mere Christianity stands as a testament to truth, love, faith, and the value of human life; its enduring and inspiring message shines like a beacon, guiding and helping all those who have eyes to see and ears to listen.
 
Mere Christianity is a long walk, through which Lewis holds your hand the entire time. It isn’t so much long in size (my copy is 191 pages) as it is in attention to detail. Lewis begins with human nature, the law, the ability to discern between right and wrong, and step-by-step, slowly but surely, comes to understand Christianity and God manifested all the way down to, by the end of the book, our daily lives and our every moments...Lewis does more than just “prove” Christianity, if you will. In establishing the Christian God as the only reasonable solution to, you know, everything going on in the universe ever, Lewis provides and expounds upon a context through which things like forgiveness, sexual morality, charity, hope, and faith can all be understood more fully in their role in the church.
 
I am well aware of Lewis' writing talent and he is clearly an intelligent individual, so I feel unqualified to "critique" Mr. Lewis. However, I would like to comment on why, at least for me, Lewis' arguments for the existence of God are uncompelling.
 
Cotton candy apologetics - engaging and conversational but shallow.

You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
A man who jibbed at authority in other things as some people do in religion would have to be content to know nothing all his life.
The bad psychological material is not a sin but a disease. It does not need to be repented of, but to be cured... Human beings judge one another by their external actions. God judges them by their moral choices.
We must get over wanting to be needed: in some goodish people, specially women, that is the hardest of all temptations to resist.
How monotonously alike all the great tyrants and conquerors have been: how gloriously different are the saints.
