Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis

Boiling down the essence of Christianity, free of denominational debate, this man has a real gift for presenting logical and easy to follow arguments to make his case. “…a cold, self- righteous prig who goes regularly to church may be far nearer to hell than a prostitute. But, of course, it is better to be neither.” “…a real Person, Christ, here and now, in that very room where you are saying your prayers, is doing things to you.” Speaks of evolution as taking unimaginable changes in course, recommending not to follow the timeline – armored creatures should lead to increased-armored creatures – but no, armorless beings with great minds. And the next step has already begun – “a change from being creatures of God to being sons of God.”
