I’ve been re-reading CS Lewis’ classic book, Mere Christianity, this summer. In doing so, I keep thinking of so many people I’d like to share the experience of reading it with.
A couple of years ago, I worked through it afresh with small group of men. It took us about eight months, going chapter-by-chapter through the book. It was probably the best thing we studied.
So, I’ve decided to share some of it here on my blog. I invite you to read along whether you own a ragged old copy or would be picking it up for the first time. Be sure to subscribe to this blog for free updates if this is something that would interest you.
CS Lewis is a wonderful writer and a great companion on the journey of faith. He will make you think. As he says in one chapter, God “wants a child’s heart but a grown-up’s head.” Reading Lewis is a fine way to cultivate both. So he requires your thinking cap. That probably sounds exhilarating to some but stressful to others. I’m no expert on Lewis, but I’m interested in sharing the experience of reading the book with others, so if I can serve as a guide of sorts, then great.
In the meantime, pick up a copy if you don’t have one already. If you have a copy, pull it down from the shelf and dust it off.
First chapter coming soon.
