Clive Staples Lewis (November 29, 1889 - November 22, 1963) was born in Belfast, Ireland. He is best known as a Christian apologist and author of The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy.

C. S. Lewis has had a remarkable impact on society. The Chronicles of Narnia, are being made into movies, countless bands have used his work for their names or songs, and his theological discourses are commonly referenced. The main goal for Lewis was that of presenting a reasonable case for Christianity. In pursuit of his goal, Lewis derived or expanded several, logical arguments for the existence of God and the reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Although Lewis did not physically suffer from persecution, some Biblical scholars rejected his arguments (specifically that of the Trilema) as illogical.

As a result of the extensive education and study, Lewis was primarily a skeptic. Once he became a Christian, Lewis used this same skepticism to provide adequate reason for the hope that we (Christians) have.
