My dad gave me a collection of CS Lewis books for my birthday. Was skimming through it today and came across this. Found it really thought- provoking and a very interesting angle on how I could evangelise. I have quite a number of very dear pre-believing friends.

One of the great difficulties is to keep before the audience's mind the question of
Truth. They always think you are recommending Christianity not because it is true but because it is good. ........One must keep on pointing out that Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.
