The Anglican Episcopal House of Studies at Duke Divinity School will hold an evening lecture on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of author and scholar C.S. Lewis.

The lecture, “Rational and Imaginative Persuasion: Reflections on C.S. Lewis on the 50th Anniversary of His Death,” will be presented by the Rev. Robert MacSwain, assistant professor of theology and Christian ethics at the School of Theology at Sewanee, The University of The South, and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis. 

During the public lecture, MacSwain will address Lewis' past and current success in persuasively communicating the basic content of the Christian faith to millions of readers; why he so sharply polarizes readers; and what, if anything, can be appropriated from Lewis a half century after his death.

No registration required.
