C.S. Lewis at War

C. S. Lewis at War: The Dramatic Story Behind Mere Christianity tells the little-known story of the genesis of Lewis' Mere Christianity, widely considered one of the greatest Christian books of the twentieth century. What most people don’t realize is that it was first created as a series of radio broadcasts that came about due to the conflict and adversity faced by Britain during World War II.  Featuring Jeremy Northam (The Crown) and John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings.)

Includes a dramatic reading of the entire text of Mere Christianity.


Paul had done so much research for the audio drama C.S. Lewis at War, that it seemed sensible to write a companion book going into more detail.


Exhaustively researched, including looking at originals of Lewis' letters to and from the BBC, it's a fascinating look into Lewis' experiences in wartime Britain.
