The 2017 Lecture

Announcing the Thirty-Fifth Annual C. S. Lewis Lecture

Lecturer: Dr. John Stackhouse, The Samuel J. Mikolaski Professor of Religious Studies and Dean of Faculty Development, Crandall University in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Lecture topic: “Housework and Holy Communion, Books and Beer: The Fundamental Ethics of C. S. Lewis”

C. S. Lewis is best known for creating the worlds of Narnia and the Space Trilogy. But how did he understand the real world? How did he make his way in it? Combining themes from Lewis’s writings and elements of his biography, this lecture will paint a vivid portrait of Lewis’s way of life as a Christian, a portrait that will highlight some of his marvelous strengths as well as his remarkable limitations as an ethical guide.

Location: UTC, Derthick Lecture Hall, Room 101
Thursday, March 23, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
The public is invited. Admission is free.

    Will the text of this lecture be made available online afterwards?
    Some of us live too far away to attend in person.

    I’m excited about the lecture. Several older friends who have hearing issues are coming. The last couple of years, they haven’t been able to hear the speaker. Please double check the mic that the speaker uses so everyone can enjoy the lecture.
    Thank you,

    Dear Janie:

    Thank you for writing and alerting us to your friends’ hearing issues. If you attended last night, you will have observed that yet again we had problem with the UTC audio-visual staff providing us with adequate sound resources. Frankly, I’m appalled, but there it is. If you and your friends attended and had problems, do sent me a little note to that affect to beckmanndn@gmail.com. I will add it to the expression of concern that I plan to make!

    God bless.

    Cheers!
