C.S. Lewis: MERE CHRISTIANITY - the Doodle Video presentation of his talks

C.S. Lewis (1893-1963) novelist, academic, literary critic, medievalist, essayist, and lay theologian had been baptised at birth, but he lost his faith completely during adolescence and was a committed atheist by the time he went to Oxford. He would constantly  debate the existence of God with J.R.R. Tolkien and other Christian friends. While his conversion took place over a period of time, his actual surrender to God took place when he was 32. Go HERE to read a short article on his life.

One of his most influential books was “Mere Christianity”, the text of a series of BBC talks Lewis gave. Here is a clever Doodle video presentation of a substantial portion of it. Click on the links to watch each video.
