Mere Christianity was the first apologetics book I ever read—I didn’t even know such things existed. I’ll never forget the wonder I felt at seeing not only how Christianity matches up with reality, but also its depth and beauty more clearly than I ever had before.
So I encourage you to get a digital copy of Mere Christianity while it’s on sale for $1.99 (you never know how long these deals will last). You don’t need a special device to read it, you only need to download the free Kindle app for your computer or smart phone.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’s death, and Michael Ward (author of Planet Narnia) has started a campaign to raise the funds for a memorial to Lewis in Westminster Abbey’s Poets’ Corner in London, where many past authors such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, and the Brontës are buried or memorialized (some thoughts on this by Alister McGrath here). If C.S. Lewis has made a difference in your life through his literary works, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to express your appreciation by making a donation (via PayPal or check) towards this memorial.
Also on sale today is the Kindle version of William Lane Craig’s On Guard for $3.74. If you’re looking for an introductory overview of apologetics to use in a Sunday school class, or you’re interested in getting some friends together to talk about apologetics, or you'd like to send a copy to your friendly neighborhood skeptic, this would be a great book to use. Again, don’t wait, because these deals don’t usually last very long.
