Taking a careful look may lead to surprising places. C.S. Lewis, a scholar of Medieval and Renaissance literature, a novelist, and an eloquent expositor of Christianity, began as something between an agnostic and an atheist. He continued as such until he considered seriously the possibility of the truth claims of Christianity. Examining the evidence critically led to his conversion. Lee Strobel and Josh McDowell, both popular Christian apologists, who have written on arguments for the historicity of the resurrection in accessible formats, likewise both began as atheists—atheists until they looked at the evidence. This is not the story of everyone, but it is the story of many. We must ask ourselves, then, are we committed to truth wherever it may lead us? Are we open to forms of inquiry beyond science? Are the Christian truth claims, if they hold up, important for life? Are they worth examining? And am I willing to examine them? — Tyler VanderWeele (from, Evidence, Knowledge, & Science: How Does Christianity Measure Up?)
