A Voice fromthe Past - Lewis

Man is becoming as narrowly "practical" as the irrational animals. In lecturing to popular audiences I have repeatedly found it almost impossible to make them understand that I recommended Christianity because I thought its affirmations to be objectively true.They are simply not interested in the question of truth or falsehood. They only want to know if it will be comforting, "inspiring". or socially useful.

C, S. Lewis, 1898-1963, Present Concerns, Modern Man and His Categories of Thought (Harcourt, Inc., 1986, p. 65).

What is the proper Christian perspective on this attitude? How should we deal with it?
