From National Post-
There have been many books that have I loved. There are some that have moved me. Only one book has ever made me tremble. In the midst of reading C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity there were passages that physically shook me, which made me feel exhilarated and troubled all at once. There were passages that spoke to me with such authority that I was incapable of ignoring what I was being told — even though at times I wanted to hide and pretend I had not heard a word.
I read it 10 years ago on the suggestion of an Anglican priest. I had told him I wanted to really understand what Christianity was about. The initial miracle was that my local bookstore, whose religion section is full of books on atheism, Tarot cards and Eastern Spirituality, had multiple copies of Mere Christianity.
Speaking to the Soul: Alleluia! Alleluia!
