Originally formulated as quick broadcasts of the Christian faith during the turmoil of WWII in Britain, C.S. Lewis encapsulates the whole to its barest essentials–mere Christianity. Heavily influenced by Augustine and Aquinas (unmentioned), Lewis tangibly simplifies their core theological convictions, which has generously shaped almost exclusively Western Christianity. Yet, as a master literary elocutionist, he does not befuddles these essentials but rather materializes them through anecdotes and stories. This is how Lewis shines the brightest.
