Description

When C.S. Lewis turned his pen to fiction, he did not cease to be Lewis the Christian philosopher, Lewis the medieval scholar, or Lewis the literary critic. Lewis's fiction also bears the mark of his early years - the loss of his mother, the nightmare of World War I combat, as well as intense experiences of Sehnsucht, the longing ache for paradise. The many layers of Lewis's fiction are explored by looking at The Pilgrim's Regress, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, and The Silver Chair. Lectures include:

  • The Life and Writings of C.S. Lewis
  • The Pilgrim's Regress
  • Out of the Silent Planet
  • The Great Divorce
  • The Silver Chair
