Other Than the Bible, What Book Would You Give to a Non-Christian?

If I had to choose one book to give a skeptic or an unbeliever, I would probably choose that book based upon the sorts of questions and background that the skeptic has. But for a lot of people, I would choose C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe precisely because it engages not just the reason, but the imagination. Lewis said this was his reason for writing The Chronicles of Narnia. He wanted to sneak past the watchful dragons that we put in front of our consciences as we hear the gospel. Lewis shows us something of what it means to long for an Aslan, what it means to have a heart breaking for the sacrifice on the stone table, and then ties those intuitions and imaginations together with the Bible and the cross.
