Book Description

8 Jun 1996 C.S. Lewis Classics
Clear and Compelling Reasoning From the Master Apologist First delivered as an informal radio address during World War II to bring hope to an embattled public, "The Case for Christianity" is C.S. Lewis's artful and compelling argument for the reasonableness of Christian faith. Dividing his case into two parts, "Right and Wrong as a Clue to the Meaning of the Universe" and "What Christians Believe", Lewis uses all the powers of his formidable wit and logic and the strength of his convictions to shed light on this most important subject.

More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for "thinkers" 6 May 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this small book. CS Lewis writes with a logical style that makes you come away wondering how anyone could not see it as clear as he does. This book is taken from his radio addresses in WWII - I only wish they were longer!

Personally I feel I should point out that a wise man would not buy this book -- not for spiritual reasons but for economic ones. MERE CHRISTIANITY opens with this book, THE CASE FOR CHRISTIANITY, and has two other books with it that provide a central thesis for the skeptics and believers alike. Don't buy this edition -- buy MERE CHRISTIANITY
That being said, this work gives in detail how there simply must be a God, and how athiesm simply does not hold water. It also talks about dualism, the belief of the Ying and Yang, where good and evil are contained and balance out one another. To all you Star Wars fans, this abolishes the Force and all its false theological implications.

C. S. Lewis's cool clear logic, well founded arguements, and easy-to-read writing style make this one of the best of witnessing tools. This is a book anyone can read and understand, and stands as one of the great apologetics of the 20th Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Persuasion 29 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Even if you have definitely set your mind against God and Christianity, you Must admit that C.S. Lewis is a brilliant author. I have read some of Lewis's other works and have also glanced at other persuasive books on the atheist's side. Recently I began reading "The Case Against God" by another author on the the nature of Atheism. After I had read no more than 20-30 pages it was obvious to me that Lewis's writing technique and the way that he presented his case was much more informed; much more thought out. C.S. Lewis has a captivating writing style that draws you in, and holds you in awe of the consistent logic and informed/educated perspective throughout the book. I am a Christian, so I love C.S.Lewis's writings all the more for that reason, but as an educated person it is inconceivable for me to imagine that anyone, even an atheist could deny the obviously briliant presentation of "The Case for Christianity."

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Apologetic for Christianity 11 Aug 2006
By Matthew K. Minerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Case for Christianity functions much as a microcosm of the theology of C.S. Lewis. This small book is an excellent introduction to the thought of C.S. Lewis which is heavily centered on the claims of morality in the face of materialistic philosophy. Primarily, the first half is a defense against this type of thought, ending on an invocation to understand that Christianity fills the void primarily because of its answer to the problem of the Fall.

The second half of the text is a very brief outline of Christian dogma. While it does not hit many points (and does not promise to do such), it does hit the major points of Christianity. His contrast Christianity to Dualism and refutation of Dualism are succinct and very good. Additionally, he stresses the all-important fact that Christianity is about Christ's person (and work -- i.e. life/death/resurrection) as well as his teaching, and that it is precisely in His person/work that Christianity is differed from other religions/philosophies. My only qualm is with his view of the importance of various understandings of the Cross. He purports that is only faith in the fact that the Cross was effective that is important and that it is not important to be concerned with the images/understandings thereof. As a Catholic, I truly think that one can (to a degree) understand the soteriological aspects of the Crucifixion and that they do express truths. However, Lewis foresees this Catholic view and even explains how the Catholic view is not different from his by great degrees, for we still acknowledge that the Crucifixion itself is still greater than all explanations thereof.

This is an excellent apology for Christianity that I suggest to all who wish to see a brief glimpse of the mind of C.S. Lewis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intro to Mere Christianity. 9 Nov 2005
By CDS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors, he is witty and clear, and when he explains a point, if you don't understand it, you probably never willl.

In the case for Christianity, Lewis draws out the argument for Christianity, begining with the Law of nature, and step by step drawing the reader to the existence of God, the necessity of Salvation, and Christ's salvific work in the world. The book itself is out of print, but if you want to read it, don't despair. It's the first part of Lewis' larger work, Mere Christianity.
