Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. The three-week study will explore Lewis’ life experiences and views on Christianity with a particular focus on what Lewis calls the “Grand Miracle,” or Incarnation in the person of Jesus Christ. Material will be drawn from such classics as Mere Christianity, Miracles and Chronicles of Narnia, among other works. Leader: Vernon Markham
