Louis Markos holds the Robert H. Ray Chair in Humanities at Houston Baptist University. He is also an expert in C.S. Lewis' writings and thought.

Apologetics for the 21st Century overviews the important writings of some modern Christian apologists (Lewis, Chesterton, Sayers, Schaeffer, McDowell) and then it summarizes key apologetic arguments such as the existence of God, the reliability of scripture, the historic evidence for Jesus and his resurrection, and the exclusive claims of Christianity. This approach results in a very readable overview of modern apologetics.

“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream.
