This novel, written by C. S. Lewis is a good primer for introducing Christianity.  He covers the meaning of the Universe, Moral Laws, Marriage, etc.  He then goes into what Christians believe, how Christians should behave.   I liked this book.  I”m not sure however, if I would have gotten more out of it than I did, if I were a non-believer.  I liked many of the concepts, and believe in many of the ideas he presented.  However, I’m a different mindset possibly than the person the book was geared toward.  While I can see it’s value as  primer, it seemed a bit outdated to me.  Some of the concepts, while sticking true to biblical principles, would seem a bit naive in todays society.   If your someone on the edge, pick this up.  It might help you a bit.  Even if your just starting in your spiritual journey, you might find something useful in it.  Pick it up and see what you think.
