Book Review: Mere Christianity (Book 3 Summary)

In Book 3, Lewis explained:

1. That Jesus, being God and therefore perfectly good and just, expects us to be morally good; to behave in certain moral ways, and ultimately to become men and women with a particular kind of character — a character that is Christ-like;

2. The three aspects of morality;

3. The cardinal and theological virtues;

4. Marriage and sexual morality.

The bottom-line is this: the Moral Law Giver behind the Moral Law is not a distant kind of God (e.g., with Deism) — He is, in fact, a God who is intimately involved in human affairs — that is to say, He is not passive. He wants us to behave in particular moral ways, and ultimately, He wants us to be like Him.
