C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was a prolific writer, an “eccentric genius,” and a “reluctant prophet.” He wrote essays, sermons, children’s fiction, and novels that speak to the human condition and the importance of faith. We’ll explore through interactive discussion, the life, writings and thought of C.S. Lewis.
For the ambitious, you are welcome to read along with the course. However, you do not need to read the books in advance. You can watch the CS Lewis Doodle Videos (links below) or simply join us for the discussion. We’ll make sure to bring you up to speed.
