Series on C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity  facilitated by Mary Ann Noe on Monday evenings,

     October 24 & 31 and November 7 & 14 in the St. William Vercelli House Weakland Room

Atheist. Agnostic. Devout Christian. C.S. Lewis was pursued doggedly by  God until he surrendered.  His faith became so strong, and so public, that he was commissioned during  World War II to present a series of talks on faith to the troops, then also presented on the radio.  Eventually these were edited and published as Mere Christianity. For four sessions, we will examine important parts of Mere Christianity, as well as Lewis’s journey to God as he grappled with many of the same doubts and questions all humans still have.
