by
Louis Markos June 7, 2013


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013

ABSTRACT:

In addition to being a famed writer and speaker, C. S. Lewis was a dedicated teacher who, with the same synthetic, shaping imagination he brought to Narnia, creatively integrated his public, academic role as professor and scholar with his private, personal identity as follower of Christ and defender of the faith. In this talk I will suggest seven initiatives that modern Christian educator can take to follow in the footsteps of Lewis.
