Random question: What do you think about Lewis' comments on Dualism? Is Bad/Evil really just the pursuit of good with the wrong actions? Is that what he is trying to say?

Chapter 1: How is the Law of Human Nature different from other Laws of Nature?

Chapter 2: Isn't the Law of Human Nature just a "Herd Instinct" ? Isn't the Moral Law just social convention learned through education?

Chapter 3: What are two odd things about the Human Race (paragraph 1)

Chapter 4: Has Human knowledge progressed from the theological, philosophical, to the scientific? What does Lewis say about this perceived progression?

Chapter 5: What does "universal goodness" have to do with the discussion?


Take a moment and list:

Today is Launch Day. This is how we are going to do book club.

2 Weeks Each Section

While reading make notes. If any quotes stand out to you then post them. Also list questions you have from the reading. People are free to respond. Put the question in a discussion form. Realize the purpose of the question is to create open and honest discussion. We are not so much trying to teach this book as we are trying to discuss the views it develops. Mere Christianity isn't a book you can master in one reading. You will come back to it to mine it's depths at other times in your Christian Life. Above all do not give up on it because you can't understand what he is saying. Lewis will go along for a while expressing views and then all of a sudden "pull a string" and make it all come together. Take time and don't become discouraged on a first reading.

Schedule of Reading - have reading of this section done by this date:

Book 1: April 14
