The Case for Christianity by C.S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis prefaces this book with an explanation of it’s being composed of lectures he was asked to give, not, he supposes, because he was a any kind of scholar on the subject, (It was English, not Religion, that he was commissioned to teach at Oxford), but rather a layman, who’d simply spent many years as an atheist, grappling with such niggling contradictions to his conviction of the non-existence of any God, as the "Law of Nature", described herein as man’s apparent instinctual sense of morality. Lewis explains his conclusions by means of debating contrary assertions, introduced as letters from his audience, questioning such things as the evidence of any sense of morality in the acts of the Germans, reminding the present day reader of the times in which he lived, and presenting thoughtful arguments for his case. 56 pages.
