Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Suitable for armchair theologians and learned scholars, this book is an easy and understandable read that does not require intimate knowledge of C.S. Lewis's work. It would be a valuable introduction to the theology and faith of Lewis.
"An imaginative way to introduce a new generation to the timeless wisdom of C. S. Lewis."
"The brilliant diamond of Lewis's case for Christ has many facets. Lindsley looks at each in turn, helping first-time Lewis readers see the singular shaft of divine light that each facet reflects."
"In this excellent book, Art Lindsley presents the vast sweep of C. S. Lewis's worldview in clear, bite-sized pieces. It will be enjoyed by those who are new to Lewis as well as those who have read his work for years, by thoughtful skeptics and by all who share Lewis's 'mere Christianity.'"
"Art Lindsley rightly notes that though we think we see clearly, 'more often we miss certain clues or fail to see the implications of the ones we are given.' So he offers his readers an invaluable map to our confused world through the clear spyglass of C. S. Lewis. In this wonderful examination of the man and his writings, Lindsley points out the obstacles to Lewis's faith in God (obstacles that I often hear from the seeker and skeptic) as well as the ways that Lewis carefully worked through them in his mind and in his heart. I heartily recommend this book."
"There are few scholars who understand C. S. Lewis's apologetic work as deeply as Art Lindsley. I've known Art for many years and have always been impressed not only by his grasp of Lewis, but also by his ability to apply the material in fresh ways. I enjoyed reading C. S. Lewis's Case for Christ; it is creatively written and makes Lewis's apologetics accessible to an even wider audience."

    C.S. Lewiss Case for Christ is a concise and contemporary retelling of the famous authors beliefs. There is something in these pages for everyone. Those who are already familiar with Lewis will have a resource that highlights his key thoughts, while those new to him will follow his journey from atheism to a vibrant faith in Christ. The book was creatively written within the framework of a bookstore discussion. A group of fictional people meets each week to talk about the author. This setting allows the reader a chance to pull up a chair and join them. The characters that participate in this forum are diverse, and probably reflect an accurate sampling of the books audience. Author Art Lindsleys knowledge of Lewis is beautifully complemented by his admiration of the author. He reveals interesting facts about Lewiss personal life and then provides a spiritually sensitive look at the obstacles that held him back from a belief in Christ. The pages offer a penetrating mix of Scripture and logic. The author writes as if Lewis was a dear and trusted friend, and by the end of book, he will be to every reader. Most impressive are the clear explanations of the reflections of Lewis. Although some of these ideas have baffled brilliant minds throughout history, these pages offer an understandable summary. Lewis was one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century, and now all readers can be acquainted with his profound insights. Yet, the most wonderful thing about this book is that it has the potential to lead people to a saving knowledge of the truth. The obstacles that hindered Lewis faith in God are still present today. These pages offer a unique resource for opening discussions along those lines. -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
