Alister McGrath Speaks on C.S. Lewis: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet

Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 7 – 10pm

Location BGC Barrows Auditorium
Organization WADE CENTER
Event Name Alister Mcgrath Speaks On C.S. Lewis

The Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College is pleased to present an evening lecture by Dr. Alister McGrath at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 20 in Barrows Auditorium.

Dr. McGrath, a respected theologian and engaging speaker, will base his lecture, “C.S. Lewis: Eccentric Genius, Reluctant Prophet,” on his most recent book C.S. Lewis: A Life (Tyndale House Publishers, Inc, 2012). McGrath will challenge some commonly held beliefs about the chronology of Lewis’s shift from atheism, to theism, and finally to Christianity.

Dr. Alister McGrath is a Senior Research Fellow at Harris Manchester College at Oxford University and President of the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics.A former atheist, Dr. McGrath, now a priest ordained in the Church of England, is a popular speaker and the author of more than 50 books, including the bestselling The Twilight of Atheism: The Rise and Fall of Disbelief in the Modern World (WaterBrook Press, 2006). .

C.S. Lewis: A Life, published by Tyndale House Publishers, is written from Dr. McGrath’s unique perspective as the only scholar to have conducted a complete, chronological analysis of the entire collection of Lewis’s letters and archives, including those held at the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College. In this book, Dr. McGrath presents a definitive portrait of C.S. Lewis as eccentric thinker and inspiring, though reluctant, prophet for our day.

This event is free and open to the public. It will be followed by refreshments and a book signing by Dr. McGrath. Books will be available for purchase. Barrows Auditorium is located in the east wing of the Billy Graham Center at 500 College Avenue in Wheaton. For more information, please contact the Marion E.
