Dreaming Of Heaven, Living On Earth: C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce

 


Trace the theme of the afterlife throughout Lewis' classic work, The Great Divorce. Explore the notions that Heaven is utterly reality while Hell is nearly nothing; that Heaven is being the presence of God and enjoying all good things that flow from his character and creativity. Dr. Martindale will explain that all of our desires are, at bottom, for Heaven.

 

Dr. Wayne Martindale is Emeritus Professor of English at Wheaton College where he regularly teaches courses on C.S. Lewis. He authored the recently published Beyond the Shadowlands: C. S. Lewis on Heaven and Hell, co-edited with Dr. Jerry Root The Quotable Lewis, edited Journey to the Celestial City: Glimpses of Heaven from Great Literary Classics, and has authored numerous chapters and articles on C.S. Lewis. He and his wife Nita have taken students to many Lewis sites in England and Ireland, and he has also lived and taught in China.

Date: This even was held on August 31st, 2014 at the Moody Church in Chicago IL.
