Mere Christianity is often described as a good book for an unbeliever to read if he is seeking to establish a rational basis for belief first in God, second in religion and thence in Christianity. The book is adapted from a series of radio lectures by C.S. Lewis author of the Chronicles of Narnia. These were originally broadcast by the BBC in 1943 while Lewis taught at Oxford University.
