Lutherans Listening to C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis continues to be one of the most important modern authors among English-speaking Christians. His fiction has delighted children and adults alike, and his nonfiction has encouraged and challenged the Christian as well as the skeptic. This workshop will look at the thought and writings of Lewis, especially as they intersect with themes important for Lutherans, such as the theology of the cross, faith, science and reason, and the role of beauty for belief and ethics. No pre-requisite readings are required for this workshop, but if one wished, recommended readings include The Weight of Glory, The Problem of Pain, The Four Loves and Till We Have Faces.
Dr. Erik Herrmann
Professor of Historical Theology; Dean of Theological Research and Publication; and the Director of the Center for Reformation Research at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
Dr. Erik Herrmann is emerging as a leading Luther scholar in the world, evidenced by an invitation extended to him to give a plenary paper at the International Luther Congress. His academic interests in Luther studies are complemented by an equally strong interest in questions related to Lutheran piety and the devotional writings of the late Middle Ages and Reformation, especially as they pertain to pastoral care.
