C.S. Lewis vs the New Atheists

Peter S. Williams

Meet the Author

Peter S. Williams, Christian philosopher and apologist, works with the Damaris Trust, Southampton, and is an Assistant Professor in Communication and Worldviews at Gimlekollen School of Journalism and Communication in Norway


This book uses arguments made by C. S. Lewis to counter the claims of the “new atheist” movement, showing thereby that there is nothing especially “new” about it. How might C. S. Lewis, the greatest Christian apologist of the twentieth century, respond to the twenty-first century “new atheism” of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and company? Might Lewis’ own journey from atheism to Christian belief illuminate and undercut 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
