Mere Christianity

Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis, is an amazing book that discusses what all Christians believe and why. Lewis, who became a Christian after many years as an atheist, understands the reasons people have for unbelief, and he adresses these issues while eloquently presenting a rational case for Christianity.

A live body is not one that never gets hurt, but one that can to some extent repair itself. In the same way a Christian is not a man who never goes wrong, but a man who is enabled to repent and pick himself up and begin over again after each stumble - because the Christ-life is inside him, repairing him all the time.
-C.S. Lewis

Mere Christianity Apologetics

Post  AndrewA on Mon Jan 04, 2010 8:47 pm

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would be either a lunatic — on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. 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 patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.


If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.

Anything by Lewis is awesome!

" I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
