The Second Friend: Owen Barfield’s Influence on C.S. Lewis, will be presented by Ken Myers on Tuesday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the UTC University Center Auditorium. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
Myers worked for nearly a decade as an editor for National Public Radio (NPR) and also attended seminary for his Master of Arts in Religion before he founded Mars Hill Audio. Myers has also written the book All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes: Christians and Popular Culture (2nd ed., Crossway, 2012). He is a regular contributor to Touchstone magazine.
The C.S. Lewis Lectureship series has been held annually in Chattanooga since 1983. Charles Hummel of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship established the series to preserve and disseminate the Christian and literary legacy of Lewis. This event has brought in lecturers from across the country for thirty-two years.
Lewis, an Oxford graduate, spent his career communicating Christianity to the modern world. His writings, most notably Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, and The Chronicles of Narnia, include literary criticism, theology, science-fiction, poetry, and children’s literature.
