Matters That Matter: "The World's Last Night: Apocalyptic Literature and the Progress of History in C.S. Lewis


The word, “Apocalypse” means literally “unveiling,” and apocalyptic literature such as the biblical book of Revelation plays precisely this role for Christians. Namely, it purports to remove the veil keeping us from seeing historical reality for what it really is - the arena where sin and evil are vanquished on the cross of Jesus Christ. Taking C.S. Lewis’ short essay titled, “The World’s Last Night,” as a starting point, this presentation will explore christian apocalyptic themes found in scripture and illumined throughout Lewis’ fiction and non-fiction writing.

 

 

Dr. Bryan Hollon 
In addition to serving as Resident Scholar at the C.S. Lewis Institute of Northeast Ohio, Dr. Hollon is Professor of Theology and Director of the Center for Christian Faith & Culture at Malone University. As a scholar, he specializes in ressourcement theology, which is best exemplified in the work of Henri de Lubac. As an Anglican Priest, serving at St. John's in Canton, Ohio, he is always interested in the ways that Christians and Christian churches engage contemporary culture and struggle to remain faithful to the gospel in different contexts. Dr. Hollon is a proponent of the great consensual tradition that C.S. Lewis referred to as “Mere Christianity,” and his various activities tend to focus on different aspects of this tradition. He and his wife Suzanne met at Baylor University and were married in 1993. They have three children in their teens and twenties.
