This book requires you to leave children's Sunday School behind and have your mind stretched so you can start to experience an intelligent, mature, and insightful way of thinking about what Christianity is really about. As for agnostics and atheists they should spend their time critiquing this book instead of targetting Christian's who think like children. Lewis's use of language and metaphor, make his piercing logic very entertaining. The reader sounds like a bit of an arrogant Englishman but does a good job and as with all the good audiobooks the narrator drifts into the background as the ocean of ideas surges forth. Another under appreciated book by Lewis, the Problem of Pain, is an excellent companion to this. How I wish Richard Dawkin's (of The Selfish Gene) and his followers were arguing with CS Lewis and not the modern, superficial christian evangelicals. All concerned would be so much better off!

As a retired Physicist who taught at a University, and worked for the Government, I am skeptical about miracles. This book does not directly attempt to assert that miracles happened, but rather examines the rational basis for examining the evidence for and against them. C.S. Lewis had philosophical training as part of his background, as well as a deep understanding of logic. He applies the techniques of each to the question of whether miracles can exist, and how to approach the problem. If you read this book without preconceptions, either for or against the central thesis, you come out with a lot of material to think about. If you are skeptical about miracles, this is a good book to read to at least open up your mind. If you already believe in miracles, then this would be worth reading to introduce some skeptical thoughts into your mind to cause you to think, and perhaps reinforce your beliefs after the thought process.
