Discussing Mere Christianity Session One
Discover the classic message on what all Christians believe
In this 8-session video group study, you will discover why Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis is one of the most read and beloved Christian books of all time. But over seventy years after it was first delivered as a series of radio messages, what relevance does it have to our world today? Host Eric Metaxas and a variety of Christian leaders−including Philip Yancey, Alister McGrath, Devin Brown, Paul McCusker, Douglas Gresham, and others−help us understand the timeless message of C. S. Lewis in fresh ways for a new generation.
Metaxas and other speakers will help you explore the positive ideas that C. S. Lewis has so eloquently written about in Mere Christianity for those who already call themselves Christian. This video study also explains in an engaging, winsome, and nonthreatening way the basic tenets of the Christian faith as illustrated by C. S. Lewis to those who do not claim to be Christian.
