Examining C.S. Lewis

Christian apologist C.S. Lewis argued for a reason-based Christianity. Today, when so many people are claiming agnosticism and atheism, perhaps a reason-based faith is more important than ever to explore. Wheaton College professors Jerry Root and David Downing have written books on Lewis. Ed Stetzer will talk with them about the impact he can have today in our witness for Christ.
