C.S. Lewis Himself (from Mere Christianity)
September 18, 2013
I’ve previous posted the following, but because of recently repeating my CSL Minutes about Mere Christianity and someone asking about hearing something from it I felt it was easiest to remind everyone about this piece by repeating today. By the way, I’ve taken the audio (which is in public domain) and enhanced it slightly (but remember it is an old recording). Nevertheless, I believe this is the best version of this audio.
The following is the only surviving recording (from three that were made) from the broadcast talks he did that eventually became Mere Christianity. It was recorded on March 21, 1944 and heard on the BBC on April 4, 1944. It was the seventh and final talk and became the 11th chapter of Beyond Personality (book four on Mere Christianity). Note the book version is somewhat different.
