mere christianity

"The real test of being in the presence of God is that you either forget about yourself altogether or see yourself as a small, dirty object. It is better to forget about yourself altogether...If you do not think you are conceited, it means you are very conceited indeed." (C.S. Lewis)

C.S. Lewis's life of suffering, war and death (which led him down an intensive spiritual path from atheism to Christ) is well reflected in this work. Using simple (yet critical) philosophy and logic, Lewis describes not only that God's existence is possible, but so obvious that to reject it is intellectual (and of course, spiritual) suicide. Though
originally composed for a 1940s/1950s English audience, this work is a timeless classic --- a theological and philosophical masterpiece. Even for the born-again Christian, Lewis can give greater insight into morality and divine law that may very well change the way you think forever
