    It's interesting how different it is from what is now in the book Mere Christianity.

    BTW, it was recorded on the date you gave, but aired on April 4, 1944.

    Wow thank you for posting this! Given that Mere Christianity is a classic in Christian apologetics, these recordings have quite a sentimental value to me as well

    If you read the book Mere Christianity in its newest form as re-writing by C.S.L himself you will find the reason for the differences in the language and content.
