    1. **I received this book for free through First Reads for an honest review**I enjoyed reading this book. Really, I did. The three stars up there do not tell the whole story. What I really liked about it was the heart and story behind the book. You could feel the brilliance of the author's faith. Job 23:10 came to mind as I was reading bits of the author's bio throughout the book. The book, I would say, is in its essence a brief summary of CS Lewis' main or most popular ideas in Mere Christianity a [...]

    2. This little book written by Dr Ron Smith, "A Mere Christian", reminiscent of C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity", is a lesson on Christianity - what it means to be a Christian and how the Church (Bride of Christ) is admonished to be prepared for the Second Coming of Jesus.I was particularly interested in his commentary on God being outside of time and space as we know it. I don't completely understand this concept, but God did not mean for us to understand everything this side of eternity. I also li [...]

    3. I received an electronic copy of this book from the author, with the request to provide a review. I shall try to provide an unbiased review, although in interests of full disclosure, I did enjoy the email conversation I had with the author, which may actually bias me slightly despite my best effortsd then I might be overly critical in my attempt to balance that out, so take that disclaimer how you will!I read the book through twice to be thorough, and because I’m still struggling to adjust to [...]

    4. Jeff Friend at Clarion Forword Reviews posted a five star review here: forewordreviews/revieIn A Mere Christian, Dr. Ron Smith draws on his inspiration from the writings of C. S. Lewis to combine his scientific training and Christian beliefs to present well-reasoned and solid explanations of foundational biblical concepts that are frequently misunderstood or misinterpreted. The result is both a message of instruction and encouragement for Christians and a debunking of misinformation and distorti [...]

    5. Lucid and thoughtful, this excellent work acknowledges its indebtedness to the insights of CS Lewis. It's a slim, easily read book, packing a real impact. I particularly appreciated the section on the four cardinal virtues, their opposition to the seven deadly sins and their relationship to the Beatitudes. I also discovered a new term, one I really like: 'figura umbrae', the shape of the shadow. Where has this phrase been all my life? What a gorgeous term for the awkwardly named 'type' of Script [...]

    6. An overall decent reflection of the author's thoughts on Lewis's work. It read more like a summary - I felt that if I hadn't read Mere Christianity, then most of the arguments would have seemed simplistic and assuming. I felt that the book as a whole lacked structure and was unsure of its own message. That said, it had some good points within it which make it worth reading.
