Thurber Lecture on C.S. Lewis’ Images of New Creation

A few weeks ago, I gave a Thurber Lecture at the American Church in Paris on Images of New Creation in C.S. Lewis.

Many of C.S. Lewis’s stories – Narnia, Perelandra, The Great Divorce, Till We Have Faces — are inspired by images of new creation. We will be discussing what makes these images so rich and vibrant, and how they shape C.S. Lewis’s Christian outlook. We will discuss the ideas – both religious and literary – that Lewis draws upon in crafting these images of new creation, and how they can inspire us, too, as we seek to shape our life and our world according to God’s promise.
