C S Lewis



In this session we will be looking at one of the main 20th century apologetics for Christianity, C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. The book is based on a series of talks that Lewis delivered on the BBC, between 1942 and 1944. In the first two chapters a new argument "a moribus" for the existence of God is presented, followed by a succint exposition of "What Christians Believe", with a particular focus, again, on morals. Don't be put off by the easy-going and seemingly uncomplicated tone of Lewis's discussion: it's only there to veil the complexity of the problems tackled.

This session is chaired by Andrea Selleri.
