Interesting and Thought Provoking
Any additional comments?
Although this was not an actual specifically written book, it is a compilation of the relevant 'Apologetics' essays and articles that C S Lewis had written over a 20 year period, as such, this is an amazing and 'definitive' book, to be read alongside 'Mere Christianity' 'Surprised by Joy' and 'God In The Dock'.
Unfortunately, I am one of those (probably many), hesitant Christians, who believe, but have an element of timidity in confessing, sharing or even admitting my belief! I'm not proud of it, but I know that God is working with me on this. One of His solutions for me?: C S Lewis.
This collection of essays underline and emphasise many things that we believe as Christians, with thought provoking discussions on topics that, although maybe not specifically dwelt on, cover areas that, such hesitant Christians as I, can exclaim; "Ah yes!" to.
A couple of the essays were a little over my head - the Classics references - but I still achieved an overall understanding of the matter discussed. However notwithstanding this statement, this is an easy, interesting and thought provoking audiobook, which was interesting enough for me to listen to a few times. Not because I 'didn't get it', but because I DID get it, and wanted to remember it!
This book is for you if you can relate to what I've written above.
This book is for you if you have questions about Christianity.
This book is for you if you are currently an Agnostic or an Atheist and want to hear the arguments that other Christians cannot satisfactorily articulate.
This book is for you if you're just plain curious.
C S Lewis was a very talented, gifted, articulate man. He was also an Atheist who put God in the Dock, and ended up being converted. You cannot afford to pass on this audiobook, it's worth Every penny.
