C. S. Lewis's Case for Christ: Insights from Reason, Imagination and Faith (Paperback)
There can be many obstacles to faith. As Art Lindsley says, "Lewis knew what it was like not to believe. He struggled with many doubts along the way to faith. Since he was an ardent atheist until age thirty-one, Lewis's experience and education prepared him to understand firsthand the most common arguments against Christianity." As a scholar and teacher of literature at Oxford, Lewis confronted many questions:
- Aren't all religions just humanly invented myths?
- Doesn't evil in the world indicate an absence of any personal or loving God?
- Why should what is true for one person be true for me, especially when it comes to religion?
- How can anyone claim that one religion is right?
- Why follow Jesus if he was just another good moral teacher?
This book provides a readable introduction to Lewis's reflections on these and other objections to belief in Jesus Christ and the compelling reasons why Lewis came to affirm the truth of Christianity. Art Lindsley is a helpful and reliable guide to the voluminous and sometimes challenging writings of Lewis for both seekers and those who want to grasp their own faith more deeply.
