What C.S. Lewis and Lee Strobel Don’t Want to you to See

In his book The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel plays out a pantomime of skeptical inquiry, asking what he thinks to be “the hard questions” about the supposed divinity of the character Jesus Christ, smiling and nodding at Christian theologians’ pat answers, and asking you to smile and nod along with him on the path [...]

What God Did for the Christians of London

I responded to this appeal by committing to read the book cover to cover, and that’s what I’m doing now.
