This course is a literary introduction to the life and works of C. S. Lewis. We will be examining both fiction and nonfiction, with an eye both for the spiritual (instructive, apologetic, etc.) value of Lewis’s work and his work as a scholar and creative mind. For this course you will have the opportunity to choose between two reading tracks. Track 1 provides an introduction to three of Lewis’s most iconic works, focusing on Christian apologetics, salvation and spiritual warfare, and the gospel communicated through fairy tale. Track 2 takes a more intimate approach to Lewis’s beliefs, focusing on his conversion, experience of suffering, and the writing he considered his best.
Faced with a pile of problems, we may say with our lips that only prayer can solve them, yet we talk more than pray, worry more than pray, and scheme more than pray. In sum, everything is put before prayer. – Watchman Nee (1903 – 1972)
