Notes "The contents of this book were first given on the air, and then published in three separate parts as The case for Christianity (1943), Christian behaviour (1943), and Beyond personality (1945)"--Preface.
Summary In this one-volume edition, Mr. Lewis explains that his purpose is not to convert to any single denomination, but to prove that in the centre of each "there is a something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice." It is this central core of agreement that leads the author to speak of the nobility of a "mere" Christianity.
