A Field Guide to C. S. Lewis Outside of Narnia, with Paul Cook
If you, like me, grew up reading the Chronicles of Narnia, then at various times you might have found Clive Staples Lewis (“Jack” to his friends) whispering in your ear about what it means to be a Christian. I’m sure you know that the Chronicles can be read either as fairy tales or as Christian allegories, and you might also be aware of Lewis’s other religious works. His book Mere Christianity is regularly rated as the most important religious work of the 20th century. You might not know that the seven Narnia books also can be read as medieval allegories for the planets, because Lewis was every bit as geeky as his friend J. R. R. Tolkien. They can be read as social statements by Lewis the arch-conservative, who is now seen as a patron saint by many American evangelicals, but who was surprisingly non-traditional in his personal life. Or they can be read as evidence of Lewis’s own faith journey: from an atheist in a foxhole during World War I, to the voice of Christianity in a radio series during World War II, to a brief but intense late-life marriage that changed his views yet again. In this 6-week series I invite you to join me on Sundays at 10:45 AM, either in-person or via this Zoom. Contact the office for the Zoom link. Class materials will be shared electronically, but pre-reading is not required. We will start each week with a different Narnia book, and then look at C. S. Lewis’s other writing in order to better understand him, to argue with him, and to be inspired by his ideas, both inside and outside of Narnia.
Christian Care Committee:
We are starting this committee again here in 2022. If you are interested in sending out cards and which month you would like to take, please contact Cindy in the office. She will send out cards in January.
