Mere Christianity Book 4 - Beyond Personality: or First Steps in the Doctrine of the Trinity. Chapter 7 - Let's Pretend

C.S. Lewis uses two stories to illustrate the concept of Christian New Birth in what I personally find is the centerpiece of the book, Mere Christianity.

  1. According to Lewis, what do the words "our Father" which open the Lords prayer mean?
  2. What good is there for a person to pretend by dressing up like Christ?
  3. How does Christ turn our pretense into reality?
  4. How is this different from listening to our conscience?
  5. How does "good infection" work through people?
  6. Why should we not pin our whole faith on any human being?
  7. Is Christianity simply a matter of reading what Christ said and trying to carry it out?
  8. What are the two discoveries which Lewis made as he began to be transformed by Christ?
