As Leonard DeLorenzo has mentioned before on this show, the McGrath Institute for Church Life is hosting its annual Lent-to-Easter lecture series this year on C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia. We’ve welcomed two of this year’s lecturers to our show in previous weeks, and now we host a third. Dr. Rebekah Lamb is a lecturer in theology and the arts at the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. She is one of the four principal faculty members in the Institute for Theology, Imagination, and the Arts. Her lecture in the Chronicles of Narnia series was on the book, “The Silver Chair.”
Rev. Dr. Michael Ward, who is as of last year a Catholic priest and who comes to us from the University of Oxford, joins us today to talk about C.S. Lewis, Narnia, theology and the arts, and more.
In Lent 2019 the McGrath Center is focusing on a literary work to meditate on throughout the season. On the show today is Professor Fagerberg, who teaches in the field of Liturgical studies at Notre Dame’s Theology Department. His discussion today will address what Lewis hopes for us to find in Narnia.
