CS Lewis and rational argument

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 the opening lecture (see the video above), Professor Alister McGrath, the author of a recent biography of CS Lewis, explores the role that rational, philosophical argumentation played throughout Lewis’s life, before and after his conversion to Christianity. The lecture is followed by questions from the audience.
