C.S. Lewis is known as the apostle to skeptics. His arguments from reason and his imaginative approach to presenting Christian thought has challenged, encouraged and stimulated many, including the skeptic, the seeker, and the follower of Christ.One person whose life he impacted is Kenneth Samples:
"Unaware of any significant and enduring meaning or purpose to life, I felt a deep sense of emptiness growing in me as a teen . . .
The angst drove me to desire something deeper and more significant, and I continued contemplating the 'big questions'. During my first year in college, my older sister gave me a copy of Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis . . . One day I picked it up and began to read. Lewis, an astute Christian thinker, presented a clear case for Christianity. For the first time, I understood the basic message of the gospel. I grasped who Jesus Christ is (the God-man) and what he came to Earth to accomplish (the redemption of lost sinners). Many of the arguments Lewis marshaled in defense of the Christian faith (particularly his moral reasoning) brought me fresh insight, moral conviction, and intellectual challenge."

An open letter from Chad Vandiver...
Dear Austin Friends,
Bonjour from Montreal!
I would like to personally invite you to experience the historic movement of God that is transforming the city of Montreal and the province of Quebec. We have been praying Luke 10:2 and God has blessed us with 8 church multiplication centers! We desperately need your help to send out church planters to reach the most unreached people group in North America, the Quebecois. Only 0.5% of the Quebecois have accepted Christ as their Savior but there is a generation here of 20-30 year olds who are curious about Christ.
Would you consider joining Dr. David Smith, Jonathan Dodson and I from 10 AM-12 PM on March 26th at the Austin Baptist Association located at 3811 Harmon Ave Austin, TX 78751? Would you be willing to extend this invitation to the churches in your area? I would not want them to miss this unique opportunity to join God on mission in the most unreached place in North America.
I look forward to seeing you!
