Sintesi dell'editore

A now-classic book with insights as fresh and relevant today as they were in the 1960s....

Harry Blamires, a noted British Christian thinker who started writing through the encouragement of C. S. Lewis, his tutor at Oxford, makes a perceptive diagnosis of some of the weaknesses besetting the church today. He argues that the distinctively Christian intellect is being swept away by secular modes of thought and secular assumptions about reality. Blamires calls for the recovery of the Christian mind and challenges “not only secularism’s assault upon personal morality and the life of the soul, but also secularism’s truncated and perverted view of the meaning of life and the purpose of the social order.”

Harry Blamires is an Anglican theologian, literary critic, and novelist. Now retired, he served as head of the English department at King Alfred’s College in Winchester, England. Blamires started writing at the encouragement of C. S. Lewis, his friend and tutor. The Christian Mind, his bestknown work, has been used as a textbook at hundreds of bible colleges and seminaries around the world. He is also the author of The New Bloomsday Book: A Guide through Ulysses and A Short History of English Literature, among many other works.

Praise for The PostChristian Mind: “Blamires was a student of C. S. Lewis, and like his mentor, his highly readable arguments are spiced with memorable anecdotes and built on a firm foundation of common sense…Blamires gracefully delivers his thesis with wit and logic.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Disturbingly simplistic

A disturbingly simplistic apologetic for the Christian faith. From the onset it takes an extraordinary prejudiced tone. Not prejudiced in terms of race, but in terms of worldview. There is no attempt to respectfully dialogue with individuals coming from a different world view. Everyone is entitled to disagree, in respectful tone, but this book takes a patronizing and contemptuous tone right out of the gate.

Important and timely message

Blamires's view of the dangerous rise of secularism and his predictions of it's impact on the church have sadly turned out to be very accurate. This call to 'think Christianly' remains so important but it is increasingly difficult in this post modern culture.
