Reality and Pre Evangelism in the Apologetics of Lewis and Schaeffer


In their pre-evangelism, Lewis and Schaeffer first showed the unbeliever (post Christian) that he was wrong before showing him why he was wrong. Schaeffer led the post Christian to follow his beliefs to their logical conclusion. Lewis did the same, but he also used imagination to awaken the objective notion of the true, the good, and the beautiful, and showed that this sense of longing could not be explained by a naturalistic worldview. The goal of this talk is to show the importance of metaphysical realism in relation to pre-evangelism in our post-Christian world.
