Publisher's Summary

Master storyteller and essayist C. S. Lewis here tackles the central questions of the Christian faith: Who was Jesus? What did he accomplish? What does it mean for me?
In these classic essays, which began as talks on the BBC during World War II, Lewis creatively and simply explains the basic tenets of Christianity. Taken from the core section of Mere Christianity, this book provides an accessible way for people to discover these timeless truths. For those looking to remind themselves of what they hold true, or those looking for a snapshot of Christianity, this book is a wonderful introduction to the faith.

Incredible.

Lewis gets straight to the heart of what being Christian actually is. He hits the hard stuff swiftly and doesn't waste time. He uses solid logic around the issues he had as a believer and when he didn't believe. It's a fast listen and absolutely wonderful.

A jewel from C.S. Lewis

As a diehard fan of C.S. Lewis, I enjoy all of his books. This one, "What Christians Believe" is a concise review of the major doctrines of western Christianity - I never knew C.S. Lewis had written such a book. This little book covers what Christians believe in an entertaining, nonconfrontational, and informative manner. His simple, direct style makes some important concepts and ideas obvious, that otherwise had been dull and foggy. The narrator was excellent! His presentation was clear and soothing, but also lively and entertaining - it will never put you to sleep.

Fascinating and enlightening

I found this book takes a lot of listening as complex concepts are explored; but it is so worth the while. Don't be put off by the slightly old fashioned language in places 'cos it was written in the 1940/50's? The explanations and insights provided are like sunlight breaking through a storm cloud or a muddy pool suddenly becoming crystal clear; not only is it enlightening but inspiring and answers questions you didn't even realize were bothering you. I cannot recommend it more highly and I have read and reread it many times. I am quite certain I will continue to do so in the future. It should even encourage one to get the paperback copy of the original which has a few more parts to it and provides more material for contemplation.
