Lewis on Reason and Imagination In Apologetics
C. S. Lewis is known for his Christian apologetic writings as much as for his speculative fiction.
Today’s guest, former atheist Alister McGrath, comes to us via YouTube. He is a Professor of Theology, Ministry, and Education, and Head of the Centre for Theology, Religion and Culture at King’s College, London, and an apologist in his own right but also a C. S. Lewis scholar (see his biography of Lewis, C.S. Lewis – A Life: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet). Consequently, he brings his unique blend of expertise to a study of Lewis’s apologetic works.
McGrath has produced a short series of videos on Lewis’s apologetic works. In the one featured today he “considers Lewis’s rich weaving together of reason and imagination in his apologetics, and how this appeals to both modern and postmodern people.”
Hope you enjoy.
