52 for 52: CS Lewis's "Mere Christianity"

It's a classic. And for good reason. Things that stood out to me on this run through of Mere Christianity...

How had I forgotten that these were a series of radio addresses post WWII in London? Seriously... you can't read this work without hearing Lewis reading this over the air and having the minds of the nation glued to his voice.

His chapters on Charity and Pride shine higher than the rest. While every word is worth its weight in gold, Lewis's breaking down of Pride is sheer brilliance, as well as convicting. One quote for the record...

Chastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
— CS Lewis, Mere Christianity

All in all, this was a perfect read for me. Took three weeks to get through it, but I read two other books in between this, violating my "one book at a time" rule, but worth the slow drip for me to absorb more.
