“Evangelism and C.S. Lewis: A conversation with Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, with music by Meg Sutherland.”

Professor of evangelism Dr. Jerry Root will interview C.S. Lewis’ son, Douglas Gresham, about Lewis’ legacy as an evangelist. Singer-songwriter Meg Sutherland will perform songs from her debut album, “Courage, Dear Heart,” which features songs inspired by the creative legacy of Lewis.

Evangelism and C.S. Lewis is sponsored by the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism and the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College.

    Even if he doesn’t say anything new about Silver Chair this should be interesting to watch.

      He didn’t say anything about The Silver Chair. But it was worth watching anyway he’s a very good specker and has lot of interesting things to say.

    I’m not sure if I heard him correctly, but I think he said he was working on 2 movies right now. Refering to Silver Chair and what?…

      Now I’m wondering if it’s 2 Narnia films! Someone correct me before I get my hopes up. I haven’t listened to it yet.

    No new info but that’s okay, he was so amazing and fun to watch. I wanted to cry when it was over! Meg’s music is beautiful as well!

      Ditto! She has a lovely voice and performed so well live. I really hope they include some of her music in the soundtracks of the upcoming films. 🙂

    I enjoyed Screwtape Letters 50+ years ago. Bu Shadowlands, oah! I must not think about it in another’s company. I don’t cry in front of others. Thinking of Lewis and Greshen bursts me into tears. Wonderful tears…but sill tears!
