Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness.CS Lewis
Sixty years after Lewis’s death, apologist and author Trevin Wax explored whether the acclaimed author has truths for 21st century believers, let alone those who deny any faith. Where would Lewis have stood on the credibility crisis facing the Western Christian church at a time when so many are in need of genuine hope?
During a unique day of thinking, discussion and prayer, Trevin shared ways in which contemporary beliefs and culture wars offer opportunities to advance the Christian Gospel in both personal and public spheres, just as Lewis did in another key epoch in history.
Weaving together his own research with a deep understanding of Lewis’ work, Trevin invited us to consider cultural challenges and rising opportunities to beckon people with love, through the wardrobe, into a Kingdom that is much bigger than self.
