Information on Mere Christianity from the publisher:
"In 1943 England, when all hope was threatened by the inhumanity of war, C. S. Lewis was invited to give a series of radio lectures addressing the central issues of Christianity. First heard as informal radio broadcasts, the lectures were then published as three books and subsequently combined as Mere Christianity. C. S. Lewis proves that "at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice," rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations."--BOOK JACKET.
About C. S. Lewis:
C. S. Lewis, Oxford University don and prolific writer, was one of the most brilliant Christian philosophers and apologists of the 20th century. At the same time, Lewis had the uncanny ability to speak clearly to even the very young. Since his death in the early 1960's, his books - which range from fiction to non-fiction and from juvenile to adult audiences - have created a lasting legacy for him.
