Celebrated Christian apologist Peter S. Williams has published several books responding to intellectual challenges to Christianity with robust wit and acute cultural sensitivity. Selecting two of his most recent works, this collection battles contemporary atheism and guides readers to the spiritual freedom found in Christ. In C.S. Lewis vs the New Atheists, Williams wields the arguments of preeminent twentieth-century apologist C.S. Lewis against the arguments of Hitchens, Dawkins, and other prominent anti-theists. In the second volume, an examination of the Gospel accounts, Williams’ Understanding Jesus reveals weaknesses in quests for the historical Jesus and defends the orthodox Christian understanding of Jesus.

C.S. Lewis vs the New Atheists

  • Author: Peter S. Williams
  • Publisher: Paternoster
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 294

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The book will counter the new atheist movement using the arguments of C.S. Lewis, showing that there is nothing especially “new” about the new atheism. How might C.S. Lewis, one of the greatest apologist of the twentieth century, respond to the twenty-first-century atheism of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens? Lewis’ own journey from atheism to Christian belief illuminates and undercuts the objections of the new atheists. Christian philosopher Peter S. Williams takes us on an intellectual journey through Lewis’ conversion in conversation with today’s anti-theists.

This book shows the breadth, depth, and durability of Lewis’ Christian apologetics.

Understanding Jesus: Five Ways to Spiritual Enlightenment

  • Author: Peter S. Williams
  • Publisher: Paternoster
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 250

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Peter S. Williams examines the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life from an apologetic perspective—clearing the ground from preconceived ideas and prejudices and opening up five ways to consider the claims of Jesus’ life and ministry. Williams brings a philosopher’s perspective to the quest for the historical Jesus and argues that understanding the spirituality of Jesus is the path to our own spiritual enlightenment. Williams takes issue with new-atheist discussions of faith and historical Jesus studies before guiding readers through a cumulative case for the Christian understanding of Jesus.
