Posted: 22 June 2014

Last November (2013), on the 50th anniversary of CS Lewis’s death, Westminster Abbey honoured the novelist, poet, academic and Christian apologist with a memorial in Poet’s Corner. At the same time, a symposium on CS Lewis was held in the church next door to the Abbey, St Margaret’s, Westminster.

Christian Evidence has produced three videos which capture the key lectures of the symposium.

In this second lecture (see the video above), “Telling the Truth Through Imaginative Fiction”, Dr Malcolm Guite reads from the poetry and storytelling of CS Lewis, examining how Lewis sought to reconcile the perceived conflict between imagination and reason, and the vital role imagination would ultimately play in Lewis’s apologetics. This is followed by questions from the audience.

Also see the first and third videos here:
