C.S. Lewis

Roger Aubrey has just posted a couple of articles called Who is Jesus Christ where he includes some superb quotes from the writings of C.S Lewis. One of these, from Mere Chrisitanity, sets out the now famous 'Lord, liar or lunatic' apologetic for Christ's divinity.

Mere Christianity began life as a series of radio programmes that C.S Lewis recorded for the BBC in the early 1940s and broadcast during the war. His radio audience was estimated at around 600,000 and it has been said that after Winston Churchill, C.S Lewis was the most familiar voice in Britain at the time. His skill as a communicator and writer made him a household name with a clear ability to convey rich and complex theological ideas in a way that everyone could begin to grasp.

If you would like to know more about the man, the article C.S Lewis Superstar from Christianity Today provides an overview of his work and continuing influence.
