Mere Christianityby: C.S Lewis

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (p. 121)

“Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until he has something to forgive.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (p. 110)

Symbolism used in Christianity

Main charachter(s): All Christians who live faithfully.

I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because i've learned so much from it and I reccomend it to all who want to grow in their faith.

http://www.bookrags.com/studyguide-mere-christianity/themes.html#gsc.tab=0This link goes to a website that describes the symbolism in mere christianity.

Because this book included no conflict, plot, etc., I will describe the impact that this book has had on my walk with God. First of all, C.S Lewis described in his book the true meaning of faith and many of the principles involved with the lifestyle of a faithful believer. He describes faith as trying to be as close to Christ and trying to act as close to Christ as one possibly can because you are already saved not because you want to get saved. This is a major take away because acting like Christ and trying to be emotionally close to him and trusting him is what the bible calls us to do but most people take this to mean that we have to do this in order to get saved and go to heaven but Lewis explains to us that you should act this way because you are saved and because you already have that relationship with Christ. Lastly, the lesson taught in this book that has been on my heart ever since I read it is the point he makes about other religions and accepting their beliefs. I have always wrestled with the fact that other religions may have other Gods and other beliefs but what are we supposed to do or say to prove to them that we are right when they believe that they are right. C.S Lewis says that we don’t have to believe that they are wrong, and that we should accept that their decision was not a mistake.
