From the beloved children’s classic The Chronicles of Narnia to the brilliant and thought-provoking essays of Mere Christianity, Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) wrote the kind of books he thought he’d like to read. A remarkable man, his writings have intrigued, captivated, and inspired people from all walks of life, including the Latter-day Saints. Lewis is one of the non-LDS writers most quoted by LDS authors and General Authorities.
Join prominent LDS scholars as they explore C.S. Lewis’s writings on the relationship of God to man, the necessity for free will, the nature of man, life’s opportunities for joy, the lessons of pain, and the Godhood of Jesus Christ. This presentation also includes brief biographical sketches of Lewis’s life as well as readings from his work by noted poet Leslie Norris.
The bonus materials on this DVD include excerpts from a conference held at Brigham Young University in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of C. S. Lewis. Presenters include Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Robert L. Millet, Andrew C. Skinner, and others.
