Spiritual Formation in the Life of C.S. Lewis

With Dr. Lyle Dorsett, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism at Beeson Divinity School
November 15, 2003 | Falls Church, Virginia

In these four lectures, Dr. Dorsett presents some new light on the major elements of Lewis's spiritual formation with emphasis on how and why he changed over the years. Relying on hundreds of unpublished letters, nearly fifty oral history interviews, and untapped evidence from Lewis's personal library, Dr. Dorsett shows how Lewis's own spiritual transformation became the impetus behind his important role as a spiritual director to countless souls.
