3.0

The first few chapters were very funny and instantly grabbed my attention. Lewis does a good job at criticising the members of Christianity who lack self-awareness about how the way they act contradicts with their religion e.g., those who have lost sight of the message to be kind to one another and to have a positive effect on the world. Obviously, some of his perspectives, such as those about gender and chastity, are not really relevant today. He also does not have a good grasp of what atheism is. But I can understand why Christians like to use this book for self-reflection.
