C.S. Lewis and the Christian Imagination: A Case Study of the Lion, the Witch, and the WardrobeRegister for Courses
March 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
C.S. Lewis was one of the most acclaimed apologists for the Christian faith in the twentieth century. His fiction and nonfiction works provide a popular introduction and defense of the truth of Christianity in a way that is accessible to many who would not otherwise give a hearing to the gospel message. Lewis’ writing style and imaginative genius make his works a delight to read. He has had a profound impact on the Christian imagination, and the course will demonstrate this from a case study of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (LLW), as well as references from other Lewis books. It will be very helpful, but not absolutely necessary, to read (or reread) LLW before attending the course. LLW is readily available for free online.
