I've been trying to read C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity (linked to Amazon, but of course it would be better to buy it from your local Christian Bookstore) for 15 years probably, but I always end up putting it down sometime to think about something and never picking it up again.
Last month I finally read it all the way through, a little bit at a time. That there's a good book.
I especially liked:
"How monotonously alike all the great tyrants and conquerors have been: how gloriously different the saints."
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
...all of chapter 8. I can't decide what to excerpt.
At the moment, I'm looking for my next book. Any suggestions?
