Description

C.S. Lewis rarely wrote about beauty, but his writings are often extremely beautiful. For Lewis, the beautiful was an ongoing witness to the truth of Christianity, evoking a longing that only God can fulfill. In this sectional, we will look at examples from his writings — his poetry, essays, and his fiction — in order to set forth Lewis' vision of the beautiful and how it can shape our proclamation and witness today.
