Mere Christianity is one of the most popular Christian books in history. In 2006, Christianity Today ranked Lewis’s book third in its list of the most influential books since 1945. Some have even claimed Lewis is the most important writer of the 20th century.

The book is the written form of a series of radio broadcasts that Lewis gave in England in the 1940’s. There were three sets of broadcasts: “The Case for Christianity” (1942), “Christian Behaviour” (1943), and “Beyond Personality” (1944).

Mere Christianity is a classic of Christian apologetics. It has led to the conversion of some notable unbelievers, including one of the key players in President Nixon’s Watergate scandal, Chuck Colson.
