Mere Christianity = Intellectual Christianity?

Note: This is part of an ongoing series evaluating C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity.
Part 1. Part 2.

In our most recent conversation about Mere Christianity one of those in my discussion group shared that one thing she especially appreciated about the book was that it represented an intellectual approach to Christianity. While I agree that Lewis has attempted to take an honestly intellectual approach to Christianity I, intellectually, disagree with many of his points. Nevertheless, he has been intellectually honest to himself.

So, the specifics of Lewis’ argument aside, is it helpful for you to see Christians that have clearly not checked their brains at the door of their church? Are there specific (intellectual) Christians that have been influential in how you understand and live out your faith?

  1. Once you are Born Again you realy don’t really have much doubt if Christianty is real or not.
    You are aware of God’s reality. You then conform your thinking and searching the deep things
    of God, and use your intellect to discover the the plan of God. then is when intelligence serves
    you greatly.
