"An imaginative way to introduce a new generation to the timeless wisdom of C. S. Lewis." (Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth)
"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." (James Sire, author of The Universe Next Door)
"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.'" (Chuck Colson, Founder and Chairman, Prison Fellowship)
"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." (Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker)
"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." (Jerry Root, Ph.D., coeditor of The Quotable Lewis)

Later that same day, I stopped by a bookstore to get some calendars - you know, 50% off and all that. Anyway, I got the calendars and wandered around a bit, looking for a couple of specific books. On my way to these other books, I noticed a display of C.S. Lewis books at the end of an aisle. And at the top of the display was a book I had not until that moment knew existed: C.S. LEWIS'S CASE FOR CHRIST by Art Lindsley. Hmm. I felt like looking heavenward and going, "Hit me over the head with a two-by-four, why don't You?"
The book is not, as I thought it would be, a parable by parable, story by story examination of Jesus' life with all the evidence neatly trotted out as to why we should believe he was who he said he was. Rather, the book gives Lewis' reasons for choosing Christianity - which by its name indicates a belief in Jesus as the Christ - over other world religions.
One chapter titled "Myth: Isn't Christianity just one myth among many?" was especially helpful to me. I recently returned from a trip to the Vatican; while there, the gargantuan size of St. Peter's, the statues, the sight of Pope Benedict on the balcony, stirred feelings of unease in me. There were moments when it was too Hollywood, too much like hero worship. I began to look about and wonder what separated this elaborate and amazing story from other stories like, for example, The Lord of The Rings?Read more ›
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 book's audience.
Author Art Lindsley's knowledge of Lewis is beautifully complemented by his admiration of the author. He reveals interesting facts about Lewis's 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
Highly recommended.Anything written by him is a must read.
