Few authors over the past century have done more than C. S. Lewis to support countless Christian believers in coming to a deeper understanding of their faith. Combining philosophical acuity with creative imagination and literary skill, Lewis had a remarkable talent for explaining Christianity in clear and compelling arguments and for depicting it in story.
This course provides an introduction to his thought through careful study of both his fiction (such as The Chronicles of Narnia or The Screwtape Letters) and non-fiction (Mere Christianity or The Weight of Glory). Topics to be addressed include reasons for belief, the Christian story, the Christian life, sin and temptation, and Christian love. Participants have the option of joining only the weekly webinars, gaining access to additional lecture material as auditors, or enrolling in the full course for 3 hours of academic credit.
