Celebrating Forty Years of Heart and Mind Discipleship:
A Brief History of the C.S. Lewis Institute
J. Edward Glancy, J.D., C.S. Lewis Institute Fellow
with Joel S. Woodruff, Ed.D., President, C.S. Lewis Institute
The C.S. Lewis Institute Today
After fulfilling his five-year commitment to the Board, Knott passed the baton to Joel Woodruff who took over as President on January 1, 2015. In part due to the solid foundation laid by Knott, and by the grace of God, the Institute in 2015 was able to open up new Fellows Programs in Virginia Beach and Loudoun County, Virginia. Plans are underway for the launch of Fellows Programs in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2016.
The C.S. Lewis Institute looks forward to celebrating forty years of heart and mind discipleship in 2016 and continued ministry in the years to come as the Lord calls us to “come further up and further in.”

19 This section is based in part on information provided by Tom Tarrants in a November 2015 interview with Edward Glancy.
20 After Tarrants became president, Lindsley would continue to work for CSLI full time through mid-2011. During this time, in addition to writing numerous articles for CSLI publications, he wrote three books: True Truth: Defending Absolute Truth in a Relativistic World; C.S. Lewis’s Case for Christ: Insights from Reason, Imagination, and Faith; and Love, the Ultimate Apologetic: The Heart of Christian Witness, published by InterVarsity Press in 2004, 2005, and 2008, respectively. Lindsley left his full-time position at CSLI to join the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics, but he continues to serve CSLI as a senior fellow.
