J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis
The Wisdom of the Christian Imagination
Friday, October 22, 2021 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Saturday, October 23, 2021 Morning and Afternoon Sessions
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia are masterpieces of fantasy literature. Since both authors were committed Christians, these writings also are filled with spiritual insights and mystical wisdom. On this retreat we will reflect together on how Tolkien, Lewis, and their 19th-century predecessor, George MacDonald, offer timeless guidance that remains relevant to followers of Christ today.
This retreat is scheduled as an on-line event. Please check back for further information and updates.
