 Our Description

More Christianity by Fr. Dwight Longenecker

No one would dare to suggest that C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity is anything less than a brilliant explanation and defense of the Faith. But as robust, wise and ardent as it is, still it is incomplete. It begins our banquet at the table of the Lord, but doesn’t take us all the way to the final course.

That is what Dwight Longenecker’s new book, More Christianity, does. It fills our plates with the fullness of the Christian Faith found only in the Catholic Church. Lest someone think Longenecker is presuming to piggyback or cash in on Lewis’ work, or to set himself up as Lewis’ successor, that is not the case. What he does—and does brilliantly—is present the doctrine of the Church with succinct explanations of topics that arise in Catholic/Protestant discussion: the Marian dogmas, the papacy, the Mass, purgatory, the communion of saints, the rosary and more.

In Longenecker’s skilled hands, More Christianity rounds out the meal so deliciously served up by Lewis in Mere Christianity.

"Using C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity as a starting point, Longenecker challenges readers to look beyond the simple faith that Lewis described to discover ‘more Christianity.’ His use of Lewis's signature work provides an engaging point of reference that could be useful in ecumenical discussions with Protestants. It also will be helpful to Catholics seeking to understand evangelicals and their brand of Christianity." Publisher’s Weekly

"A balanced, engaging, and charitable work, More Christianity will go far in helping Evangelicals (and Catholics) better appreciate the riches and glories of the Catholic Church."
Carl Olson, Author, The Da Vinci Hoax

 

Fr. Dwight Longenecker was brought up an Evangelical, studied at the fundamentalist Bob Jones University, and later was ordained an Anglican priest in England. After ten years in the Anglican ministry as a curate, a chaplain at Cambridge, and a country parson, in 1995 Dwight was received into full communion with the Catholic Church. He has published in numerous religious magazines and papers in the UK, Ireland, and the USA, writing on film and theology, apologetics, Biblical commentary and Catholic culture.
