Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Masterful Guide to What it Means to Be Human  Feb 12, 2007
In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Lucy Pevensie found an interesting book on her friend's bookshelf titled Is Man a Myth? The subject matter makes sense from a world in which no human had been for quite some time. But even in our world questions about what it means to be human are at best unresolved by our culture. In Mere Humanity, Donald T. Williams explores humanity in the work of G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Mere Humanity consists of an introduction, six chapters, concluding thoughts, and two appendices. In between each of these are one-page poetic "interludes" that reflect on various aspects of humanity. Over the six chapters, Dr. Williams analyzes The Everlasting Man by G.K. Chesterton, "On Faerie Stories" and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, and The Abolition of Man, The Space Trilogy, and The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

Dr. Williams did an excellent job of analyzing these popular works in light of contemporary philosophies and, most importantly, biblical revelation. He showed how Chesterton, Tolkien, and Lewis each dealt with contrary ideologies in their own ways in order to point their readers to the biblical understanding of what it means to be human. My favorite chapter was "The Abolition of Talking Beasts," as it shows what peril our culture is in by losing its human identity.

It is often said that we stand on the shoulders of giants. Chesterton, Lewis, and Tolkien were three Christian giants who have given people a better perspective of the world. In Mere Humanity, Dr. Williams brings their collective perspectives together to form an insightful and urgent critique of the contemporary popular view of humanity.
Mere Humanity  May 8, 2006
I have not read this book yet. But I have read one of his other books, Inklings of Reality: Essays Toward a Christian Philosophy of Letters. That was a very good book and I look forward to reading this one as well.

I know Dr. Williams, he was one of my professors, I enjoyed every class that i had with him.

So I was quite suprised to see one of his books at Borders. But I remember him telling me at one point that he was writting a book about C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. So I am glad that I was able to find this and read it.

He is a very thoughtful and inteligent writer and teacher so I expect nothing less from him in this book.
