Overview

C.S. Lewis took up his apologetic pen because he felt that most theologians spoke jargon. “Any fool can write learned language,” he said, “the vernacular is the real test. If you can’t turn your faith into it, then either you don’t understand it or you don’t believe it.” In the infernal correspondence of Screwtape, the haunting myths of his Space Trilogy, and the allegories of Narnia, he brings the reader face to face with transcendental values and existential questions. Richard Cunningham evaluates the different kinds of literature Lewis uses as apologetic instruments, studies the devices and techniques of debate he employs to communicate his faith to unbelievers, and deduces some pertinent principles to help others define and understand the Christian faith.
