CS Lewis: The Life and Legacy

Few writers enjoy a broad audience of children, young adults, literary scholars, educators, armchair theologians, and seminarians. But C. S. Lewis - medieval scholar, college professor, radio personality, Christian apologist, writer of letters, keeper of cats, smoker of pipes, maker of stories — is one of them. This November marks half a century since Lewis’s death, and Centenary will commemorate this anniversary with a series of events: a documentary screening followed by Q&A, a scholarly talk, two brown bag lunch conversations, an interdenominational panel on Mere Christianity, and a prayer retreat.

Event Schedule:

  • Monday November 4:
    The Documentary: “The Life and Faith of CS Lewis: The Magic Never” Ends
