About this deal

S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, written by Marsden, was released in 2016, [72] and received a positive reception from critics, [73] [74] with some criticism to its conclusion. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. He argued that Lewis made his arguments convincing by creating false analogies, with an instance in his trilemma.

He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. They speak to me, and perhaps will speak to others, regardless of how they currently feel about Christianity. In the preface to later editions, Lewis described his desire to avoid contested theological doctrine by focusing on core beliefs of the Christian Faith.It was adapted from a series of BBC radio talks made between 1941 and 1944, originally published as three separate volumes: Broadcast Talks (1942), Christian Behaviour (1943), and Beyond Personality (1944). The American attorney Charles Colson's conversion happened after him reading a copy of the book given by his friend, Thomas L. It's interesting to me that he says that he's not pointing directly to a christian God, yet he seems to use the masculine term and a single being throughout the essay.

The script drafts had a much wider scope originally, and Lewis prepared for 10-minute talks when the BBC was giving him 15.This explanation (naturalistic) can also explain why certain historical figures have responded to moral dilemmas based on their social norms at the time and place they lived in. Why is it more plausible to assume that all of these instincts to help others, even if its not in our personal self interest, are more likely the products of an independent moral law? I still don't know how he even thought of illustrations that so perfectly captured the heart of his topic, but everything he said was just so clear and lucidly expressed to the reader exactly what he wanted to say. Say what you like,” we shall be told, “the apocalyptic beliefs of the first Christians have been proved to be false. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

This is a thorough refutation of Lewis's arguments which he himself abandoned late in life because it convinced none of his friends. S. Lewis's legendary radio broadcasts during the war years, in which he set out simply to 'explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times'. For many today, there is doubt about the effectiveness of family, real social interaction, the reality of history and the possibility of real power being humble. However, where Nietzsche always asserts his views in first person as if they are fact (where they are opinion), Lewis works his way through his reasoning in the third person - questioning rather than asserting. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.I also find the dichotomy between the powers of good and darkness – and especially martial metaphors like “enemy-occupied territory” – both unhelpful and outdated. Anyone looking for a resource to affirm faith and to help you consider the questions which Christianity attempts to address should think about reading this work. Lewis had indeed through the power of the Holy Spirit, put on paper that feeling that I believe all people who are born again in Christ feel and experience.
