slave--all at the hands of his childhood friend, Messala. Once
nearly brothers, any hope of reconciliation is dashed after Messala
is seriously injured during a vicious chariot race won by the
vindictive Ben-Hur. But what makes this adaptation of Lew Wallace's

after seeing Christ on the cross.

In this devastatingly funny play by one of America's most popular playwrights of Christian drama, we find an idealistic young man who believes he can start the perfect church. And of course, he runs into a myriad problems: active participation, selection of a pastor, choice of music director, policy on church doctrine, outreach for membership, and so on. Although this easy to produce play is mostly amusing, it does make an important point -- don't give up on your church and its problems, but join together in unity of mind and heart to create a better place of worship.
"Mere Christianity" by C. S. Lewis is widely considered one of the greatest Christian books of the twentieth century. What most people don't realize is that it was first created as a series of radio broadcasts that came about due to the conflict and adversity faced by Britain during World War II."C. S. Lewis at War" is a powerful and entertaining radio theatre-style audio drama on CD that brings to life this amazing period in Lewis's life. It provides a rare insight into Lewis's life, friends, and family, illuminating a time of personal difficulty that also brought forth some of his most influential works: "The Screwtape Letters," "The Problem of Pain," and "Mere Christianity." Recorded in London and written by Paul McCusker, the script comes alive with a full cast of award-winning British voice actors, cinematic sound effects, and an original score.The story begins when England was at war with Germany. Injury and death impacted everyone. Day-to-day living was immensely difficult. Children were evacuated from London and sent to other parts of the country (Lewis himself took in a few). It was a time of strain, heartbreak, and weariness. A visionary in the BBC's religious department--James Welch--passionately believed Christianity should be meaningful and relevant to the British people in this hour of need. Looking for new and diverse ways to present programs that explored Christian ideas, he contacted Oxford tutor, lecturer, and writer C. S. Lewis. Reluctant at first, Lewis finally agreed to make a case for a "moral law," drawn from common human experience that he believed was essential as a foundation for faith in Christ. He presented his thoughts in a series of Broadcast Talks that were later gathered together and published as "Mere Christianity."This behind-the-scenes drama powerfully integrates the ideas Lewis explored in "Mere Christianity" with the very real influence that comes from living out a Christian life in a period of trauma, proclaiming the reasons to trust God even when the world screams otherwise.In addition to the three-hour Radio Theatre production, "C. S. Lewis at War" includes a complete and unabridged dramatic reading of "Mere Christianity"--capturing the clarity, intelligence, and wit of the original classic. This provides listeners with a full ten hours of audio entertainment on 8 CDs.Radio Theatre productions from Focus on the Family are more than just audio storytelling. They are full dramatic productions with award-winning scripts, renowned actors, original music, and cinematic sound--like an audio movie that plays on the biggest screen of all: your imagination.

'A sure-fire hit.'

"Mere Christianity" is one of the best books of Christian apologetics ever written. Arguably, no book other than the Bible itself has had as much influence for the cause of the gospel over the past 60 years. The story of how that message came to be created, during the rigors of World War II in England, is fascinating in and of itself. But it also addresses a very important question: How do we present the gospel effectively to a culture that has Christian foundations but has become largely secularized and ignorant of biblical truth? "C. S. Lewis & Mere Christianity" develops the circumstances of Lewis's life and the inner workings of the BBC. It also goes into greater detail about life in the middle of war against Nazi Germany, and Lewis's series of broadcasts that extended into 1944.
