I just finished re-reading Mere Christianity. As always, I am amazed at its brilliant simplicity and straightforward explication of the basic tenets of Christianity; the things that all Christians in every age and denomination agree to. Every time I read it, I learn something new, which is one of ...

Not recommended for people like me who don't buy any of the tenets of Christianity to begin with. This one won't convince anyone who doesn't already want to believe.

Great, intelligent book. Its intended audience is non-Christians. Great insight into what Christianity is.
