What Christians believe

This is from a talk entitled What Christians Believe, by G.K. Chesterton. It became Chapter 11 in Mere Christianity.

As usual, it sums things up very well.

And yes, it is one of my favorite books on Christianity.

    I wonder if it’s significant that it’s filed in Chapter 11? Signifying the bankruptcy of atheism maybe? 🙂

      Works for me, but I doubt it’s intentional since he was English! 🙂

          Maybe, who knows anymore, but that’s what I read too. 🙂

  2. Surely Lewis’s Mere Christianity is one of his greatest pieces, and Lewis took the title “mere Christianity” from the 17th-century preacher and writer Richard Baxter.

    Btw we should perhaps note that Lewis did NOT like old T.S. Eliot, it was almost pathological, read his The Pilgrim’s Regress. And he was also no fan of the Sitwell’s!


    • And perhaps my favorite sort of recent bio of C. S. Lewis is by Alan Jacobs: The Narnian, The Life and Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Harper, 2005). Jacobs is a professor of English at Wheaton College in Illinois.
