C.S. Lewis – McGrath

Renewing a Vision of Faith – the Legacy of C.S. Lewis

Professor Alister McGrath


2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of C. S. Lewis, now widely regarded as one of the greatest Christian writers of the twentieth century.

Alister McGrath’s new biography of Lewis, published in April 2013, is being hailed as ground-breaking.

In this lecture, Professor McGrath talked about Lewis’s move from atheism to Christianity; his defence of the reasonableness of the Christian faith; his insights on how the quality of faith can be deepened; his views on how Christians can engage their culture; and the place of Narnia in helping us think about Christian ideas and values.

The lecture is a treat for Lewis fans, and a stimulus to all who want to think more about the quality of their faith, and how they can explain and commend it to their friends, family, and colleagues.
