Living the Legacy: The Vision, Voice, & Vocation of C.S. Lewis
Nearly fifty years after his death, the popularity and relevance of C.S. Lewis continues to increase.
His books, published in many languages, remain perennial bestsellers and continue to inspire both children and adults alike, while his academic ideas continue to inform key debates in a number of fields.
But why? What aspects of this towering scholar and exemplary Christian believer continue to make Lewis such a major figure in both the Christian world and the culture at large?
- His vision – of the human past and his prophetic view of the issues in our current age offer us trustworthy guidance as we navigate through the troubled waters of contemporary culture.
- His voice – eloquently and cheerfully challenges us, not only to attend to his wisdom, but also to develop our own voice to speak into a lost and dying world.
- His vocation – particularly as an intellectual who was unapologetic about his Christian convictions and who was a shining example of authentically-lived faith – stands as a legacy we would do well to study and cultivate in ourselves.
First among this year long celebration of Lewis's legacy will be the C.S. Lewis Summer Conference in San Diego, CA, featuring many of the leading Lewis scholars of our time.
In June 2013, we invite you to join us as we celebrate the life and legacy of C.S. Lewis.
