C.S. Lewis

Wow. You would think that coming off a break like we just did here Monday (and Tuesday) morning wouldn’t hit as hard. Actually I’m having a harder time today than yesterday…

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to tell you about a good book I just finished on Sunday.Let me get into lecture mode *ahem*

C.S. Lewis is best known as a children’s author. His Chronicles of Narnia are beloved by those who read them and have been made into movies both in the past and the present. But Lewis wrote more than just children’s stories. Lewis was born into a religious family, but in his teen years he left the church. Later, because of the influence of several friends such as J.R.R. Tolkien, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour and became part of the Anglican church. Mere Christianity started out as a series of radio broadcasts during WWII, but Lewis decided to expand it later, perhaps because of the wide response it elicited. A small book, Mere Christianity using logic to prove Christianity – the logic that persuaded him to be a Christian. Many people seem to view Jesus Christ as a good man, but Lewis reasons that because of Jesus’ claims to perfect divinity, He must have either been a liar or a madman or telling the truth. The book was challenging to me personally as a Christian. I hope you will take the time to look it over. You can read or listen to it free here:
