Beyond Personality is the final part of a three-volume series now known as Mere Christianity. This Christian apologetical work originated from the radio broadcasts C.S. Lewis periodically gave for the BBC from 1941 to 1944. By the beginning of the final round of broadcasts in 1944, at the peak of World War II, the content broadened and was strategically set to air at 10:20pm to prevent German broadcast propaganda that would play during any dead air. This book, released in 1944, is a theological piece that outlines the specific elements and ethics of the Christian faith.
