Mere Christianity was originally three separate radio talks entitled Broadcast Talks (1942), Christian Behavior (1943), and Beyond Personality (1944). These are the only two surviving audio recordings which have fused to video .
The second shown here was the last installment, which would eventually become the chapter entitled “Beyond Personality”. The remaining records were destroyed as recording tape was reused.
