C.S.Lewis & Mere Christianity ~
CFDb Movie Review
The Shortest Way Home: C.S. Lewis & Mere Christianity is an introductory review to Lewis’s classic work on issues of faith and reason. Viewers will find honest discussion and helpful insights for the tough questions asked by believers and skeptics alike.
Those who journey to the heart of Lewis’s most famous apologetic work will find that the longest way round—the hard way of discipleship, of learning to truly love God and man—is the shortest, and only way home.
Expanded Insights from Lewis Scholars, 4 part Study version with Study guide.
I have to admit I’ve never fully understood C.S. Lewis and I’m glad I was able to watch this documentary, which really cleared things up for me. It makes me wonder why I never read, Mere Christianity, after I had heard some many great things about it. LOTS of highlights for me in this one:
- The C.S. Lewis quote taken from the book, “A proud man is always looking down on things and people, and of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” This is how the documentary starts – it was a unique beginning.
- Enjoyed the 2 girls talking about the book and Christianity. It flowed nicely, adding a bit of drama within, which I love.
- Discussing how we naturally know true morals and about free will and the power of choice and why we can’t blame God for things.
- Expounds on loving the sinner, but hating the sin, death to self and doing unto others as we would have them do unto us, and the love and obedience connection.
- Answers some really tough questions logically.
- Wonderful analogies throughout.
I had forgotten it was C.S. Lewis that brought this argument, full of absolutely truth. Jesus either IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS, or he is a liar, or a lunatic. There are no other answers available for Who He is!
This documentary is profound. As the ended I said out loud, “This book should have been entitled TRUE CHRISTIANITY.”
