PEACHTREE CORNERS — Novelist C.S. Lewis is best known for his books that make up “The Chronicles of Narnia,” but he was also an atheist converted Christian who wrote non-fiction books on theology and the faith.
On Saturday, the Wesleyan School is hosting the program “The Enduring Legacy of C. S. Lewis” from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in its Powell Theater.
The half-day seminar designed to examine four facets of the legacy of Lewis — Christian vision (A New Way of Seeing), truth (Dealing With the Poison of Subjectivism), the Gospel (The Grand Miracle) and mission (The Gospel As Public Truth). The two guest speakers are Bill Smith of C.S. Lewis Institute of Atlanta and Stuart McAllister of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
Smith has been teaching and leading discussions on the life and writings of Lewis in schools, churches and bookstores for more than 10 years. McAllister has been reading the works of Lewis for 30 years and has sought to use his model, such as “the argument from desire,” in his discussions.
Tickets are $20 for one person and $30 for two people.
Wesleyan School is located at 5405 Spalding Drive in Peachtree Corners. For more information, visit www.cslewisinstitute.org/legacy.
