Summary of chapter 1 (Introduction): C. S. Lewis and friends—guides into medieval faith


Many evangelicals today have marinated in the imaginative and apologetic writings of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, G. K. Chesterton, and Dorothy L. Sayers. We love these writers for their Christian imaginations and their clear insights into how the gospel critiques modern culture and speaks to modern hearts and minds.
