I was given a copy of Mere Christianity several years ago and it changed the trajectory of my life for the better, so I want others to have the same opportunity. This is a powerful book that has the potential to catalyze thought about important, simple questions that most of us are too content, apathetic, or busy to chew on, much less answer and act on.
For me, this book led to action; for other folks, it may only amount to a planted seed. I imagine some will barely crack the spine, or just disregard it completely. Others will ridicule it. Regardless, I think the power of the content justifies the effort. The world can’t be a worse place with a few more seeds sewn, no matter the condition of the soil.
