Having said that, I think C.S. Lewis' A Case for Christianity certainly belongs on the list. Not the end-all of theistic arguments by any means, but a good place to start.

I very much agree with what he says in his "God of the philosophers" article. But I disagree with "The Present and Future Church" completely. He is too focused on the survival of the Christian church on the same playing field as religions like Islam and that will only move both Christianity and the world backwards not forwards. That battlefront is NOT one that Christianity should be fighting on for that battle is one of the problems in the world. His is a protectionist view that ultimately has less confidence in Christianity and God rather than more and is a scared cry to retreat and hold on to the past. I see his plan as only putting the final nail in the coffin to guarantee the Christianity has no promise for the future.
