C.S. Lewis and Mere Christianity, Paul McCusker
Simply awesome, inspiring and downright amazing. This is a book about the background behind the classic Mere Christianity. I chose to review this because I thought it would be a good addition to our home school library. I was not disappointed in the least. Sometimes a true appreciation of a great literary work comes with an understanding of the events that influenced the work. The author has done an extraordinary job of giving historical insight. I will be using this book in our history as well as literature. I have a new understanding of Lewis' and a new appreciation of his writings. This book gives personal accounts of the war and it's effects on the people. It also gives great insight into the inner workings of Lewis. As a new Christian Lewis was pushed into a position that was to offer hope to those who felt they were in a hopeless situation. I believe that his personal faith grew leaps and bounds with every pen stroke. As he learned the endless depths of God's love and mercy. This is a book that is a must have of any C.S. Lewis fan. Thanks to the publisher for this review copy.
