Today (July 7, 2012) marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of the landmark book Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. Of course, this is an unusual anniversary because, it’s not really a “book” in one sense of the word, but it is a collection of three previously published books. Add to this, the fact that those books were collections of previous radio broadcasts over the BBC before they were published!
There have been many fine places that have recounted the history of Mere Christianity, so I’ll not do that here. If you want to be reminded of this, or learn more about it consider reading a piece written by Dr. David Downing called Mere Christianity: “Making Righteousness Readable” from HarperOne’s CSLewis.com blog.
