“Liar, Lunatic, or Lord: C.S. Lewis and His Trilemma Argument for the Truth of Jesus”

In his approach to Christian apologetics, CS Lewis sought to confront listeners with a basic matter of decision: Who do you say Jesus Christ is? He made skillful use of logic and literary techniques in relation to the Gospels in order to present Jesus as someone who issues more than sound moral teachings but makes ontological and personal claims about Himself which require a response. This presentation will explore the dynamics surrounding Lewis’ defense of Christianity.
