C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis is one of the most interesting writers on the Christian faith, with a remarkable ability to combine verbal elegance and conceptual depth. I have written on Lewis in depth, including a prize-winning biography to mark the 50th anniversary of his death.

I shall be posting videos on aspects of Lewis’s life and thought on this page over the next few months. In the meantime, here is a lecture I was asked to give about Lewis at Westminster in November 2013. It explores Lewis’s rich concept of rationality, which enfolds both reason and the imagination. Enjoy!

I also received a lot of very positive feedback about this lecture given for the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, focussing on Lewis’s wider relevance for our postmodern culture. Although it’s problematic to refer to Lewis as ‘postmodern’, he certainly has a lot to say!
