For a long time, I've thought that theology was something for people who are smarter than I am. But through listening to this book, I've come to realise that the smart people have already done the heavy lifting and pieced everything together into a cohesive framework, which enriches our understanding of who God is, what he is like and why he is everything to us.

There is an appetite for God. And it can be awakened. I invite you to turn from the dulling effects of food and the dangers of idolatry, and to say with some simple fast: "This much, O God, I want you."Our appetites dictate the direction of our lives - whether it be the cravings of our stomachs, the passionate desire for possessions or power, or the longings of our spirits for God.

Although not as deep an epiphany as "Desiring God", this book has deeply challenged me to make fasting a regular part of my walk with the Lord - for His glory.

2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many times, but never outdone. Mere Christianity brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcasts from the war years; talks in which he set out simply to ‘"explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times."

I really enjoyed listening to Mere Christianity and it has inspired me to take the time to go and read the dead tree version of the book, so that I can more readily stop and think about all the illustrations Lewis uses.

I did feel though that the narrator did not really enjoy recording this book and sometimes I had to really concentrate to stay present while listening.

Although others have criticised this book for only being a few chapters of "meat" followed by examples, I found the examples to be the realisation of the meat of the book - the application of the principles contained.
