Mark's Reviews > Mere Christianity
It has become a classic for good reason. C. S. Lewis takes common questions, misunderstandings, and his own objections to Christianity, and answers them using the same rational approach that resonated with him as he crossed the line from unbelief many years prior. Be persistent. When I picked up Mere Christianity the first time, it was like pulling teeth. I put it down after two chapters. A year later, a friend of mine (for whom I have tremendous respect) confided that he reads the book straight through once a year to keep perspective. I thought, "Perhaps I should give this another try." I did, and I couldn't put it down! What a difference. It was easy reading, compelling, winsome. Of course, the book hadn't changed; I had. And then, it when on to radically change the way I approach all other books.
