Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis is one of the greatest Christian books of the twentieth century. Most people don’t know that it started as a series of radio broadcasts aired in England during the onset of World War II.
C. S. Lewis at War is a powerful and entertaining radio theatre–style audio drama that brings to life this amazing period in Lewis’s life. It provides rare insight into his life, friends, and family, illuminating a time of personal difficulty that also brought forth some of his most influential works: The Screwtape Letters, The Problem of Pain, and Mere Christianity.
This 2-disc behind-the-scenes drama powerfully integrates the ideas Lewis explored in Mere Christianity with the very real influence that comes from living out a Christian life in a period of trauma, proclaiming the reasons to trust God even when the world screams otherwise. Recorded in London and written by Paul McCusker, the script comes alive with a full cast of award-winning British voice actors, cinematic sound effects, and an original score.
