The Power of Truth
Ken Boa on Mere Christianity
June 12, 2008

Thirty-five years ago, I sat in a car and wept after my friend Tom Phillips
read me a chapter from C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. If you have read my
book Born Again, you know the story. Lewis's incisive words about the
"spiritual cancer" of pride forced me to evaluate my own life in a way that
left me shaken and humbled. That night—alone in my car and sobbing—I prayed
the first real prayer of my life.

Since my conversion, I have discovered that I am not the only one so deeply
affected by the words of the unassuming don from Oxford, C. S. Lewis—one of
the best-known, best-loved, and most respected of Christian writers, and for
good reason. If you have not yet explored Lewis's works for yourself, now is
a great time to start. That is because this month's "Great Books Audio CD"
from Dr. Ken Boa is all about the book that led to the change of my life.

Lewis's carefully reasoned, logical style lends itself well to Ken's
teaching style. Ken concisely, but comprehensively, takes us through the
major arguments of the book: our fallenness and need for someone to do
something we could not do for ourselves; the "invasion" of our world by the
God-man who could do just that; the new kind of life He provides for us;
and, especially, the way this new life changes us from the inside out,
giving us new purpose and new hope and making us into whole new persons.

Standard stuff for Christians—or it should be. But, as I have pointed out
here time and again, it seems these days that even many Christians will go
after any new idea—no matter how unbiblical—if it seems to promise them
self-esteem and happiness. The new rule seems to be that if Oprah is
promoting it, Christians (among others) are buying it. Some of them justify
this by saying that they do not really believe the unbiblical parts—they
just want something that makes them feel better about themselves, or helps
them improve their lives.

But an approach to life that feels good, but falls apart under serious
logical scrutiny and biblical evaluation, cuts no ice with Lewis—or me, and
for good reason. Lewis always addresses the whole human being—heart, soul,
and mind. And, as a devout, thinking, and truly humble Christian, Lewis knew
what man's real problem is. As he wrote in Mere Christianity, "Fallen man is
not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement. He is a rebel who
needs to lay down his arms."

And I was such a rebel. What Lewis's book did for me is proof of the power
of truth to truly transform a person. Lewis did not make me feel good about
myself—quite the contrary. God used his book to convict me of my sinfulness.
Only when I faced up to that could I recognize my need for a Savior who
could make me new.

I cannot recommend strongly enough that you listen to Ken Boa's excellent
teaching on Mere Christianity, and then pick up your own copy of the book,
or give it to someone else. But be careful. It just might change one's life.
