This course examines the life and work of C.S. Lewis as a catalyst for deepening and enhancing Christian ministry in engagement with our culture. The goal is not only a better knowledge of C.S. Lewis and his influence, but also to use Lewis as a test case for better declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus Christ. Readings will cover Lewis’s life story, his apologetic works, his devotional literature, occasional essays and addresses, as well as his fiction. Topics of discussion will include evangelism, apologetics, preaching and communication, cultural engagement, and the use of the imagination.
