50X52: Mere Christianity

After years of stutter starts and stops, I finally read Mere Christianity.  I found this book very interesting…at times a little dense philosophically.  But overall, I see why it is a classic read.  The opening section was by far the most interesting as it step-by-step argued why moral atheism is a untenable belief system:  the belief in universal Right/Wrong requires a belief in some supernatural power.  The other three sections were less interesting, and by the final one I found myself more out sheer grit trying to complete this book.  

Being written in Post-Nazi England as the Enlightenment continued to erode orthodox Christianity, it is a good comparison and consideration for the American Church who has been a facing a slower, but similar, erosion.
