JACKSON, Tenn. – Jan. 14, 2014 – C. S. Lewis is the focus of the fourth issue of Union University’s “Renewing Minds: A Journal of Christian Thought,” released in fall 2013.
“The influence of C. S. Lewis on American Evangelicalism is almost without equal,” wrote Union University President David S. Dockery in the introduction of the issue. “This issue of ‘Renewing Minds’...is devoted to vast and comprehensive ways that C. S. Lewis has touched our spheres of service and influence.”
Titled “C. S. Lewis: A Semicentennial,” this issue features articles from Union faculty members David Thomas, Justin D. Barnard, Harry Lee Poe, Matt D. Lunsford and Gene C. Fant, as well as articles from Louis Markos and Holly Ordway from Houston Baptist University in Texas.
Article topics range from mathematics to naturalism. The publication also contains seven book reviews.
Lewis, the late Christian apologist, was the author of such works as “The Screwtape Letters” and “The Chronicles of Narnia.” He died on Nov. 22, 1963.
“We simply could not let the 50th anniversary of Lewis’ death pass without making the most of the opportunity,” said Hunter Baker, dean of instruction and a senior editor of “Renewing Minds.”
The journal series acts to cultivate the discussion of higher education, culture and the Christian intellectual tradition.
