Posted by on Nov 12, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Recently I finished teaching a course in Apologetics at Vose Seminary, and we concluded by looking at the apologetic methodology of C.S.Lewis. As I took another look at his classic work, Mere Christianity, I was again struck by its significance and the importance of Lewis as an apologist. Based on his 1943 wartime broadcasts, Mere Christianity has impacted the lives of many thousands of people. Here is a second look at some insights from this book… To what will you look for help if you will not look to that which is stronger than yourself? C.S.Lewis God is no fonder of intellectual...

Quotable – C.S.Lewis, Mere Christianity

Posted by on Nov 5, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Last week I finished teaching a course in Apologetics at Vose Seminary, and we concluded by looking at the apologetic methodology of C.S.Lewis. As I took another look at his classic work, Mere Christianity, I was again struck by its significance and the importance of Lewis as an apologist. Based on his 1943 wartime broadcasts, Mere Christianity has impacted the lives of many thousands of people. Here are some insights from this book… A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above...

But the testimony of this...

British Publisher BRF recently confirmed that they will be releasing my latest book Why Christianity is Probably True in October – the 19th October to be exact (and ISBN number 9780857466549). Here is a taster from the book – the opening chapter to be precise. It gives a feel of the territory to be covered.

The little slogan blazoned across the exterior of many buses runs...

Post Post-Christendom…

Posted by on Aug 3, 2017 in Blog | 5 comments

For the last few decades churches in the Western world have noted, usually with a sense of lament, that we live in a post-Christendom world – in other words, in a world where Christianity has lost its privileged status and is no longer assumed to be true, moral or the default religion of society. We can no longer presume that the major stories of the Bible are known by the majority, and biblical allusions are usually met with blank incomprehension (“what do you mean when you say she’s a Good Samaritan?”) As to the church setting the agenda for society, that is long...
