Philip Ryken

Marking the 75th anniversary of C. S. Lewis’ conversion, Dr. Philip Ryken gave a series of lectures exploring Lewis’ unique status among American Evangelicals. Dr. Ryken’s passion for C. S. Lewis shines as he teaches what kind of evangelist Lewis was, communicates how Lewis thought people should read literature, and illustrates the biblical doctrine of conversion through one of Lewis’ famous Chronicles of Narnia.

Surprised by Joy: C. S. Lewis and Christian Conversion includes four messages:

C. S. Lewis, the “Evangelical”
C. S. Lewis, the Evangelist
Reading Narnia with Lewis
The Conversion of Eustace Clarence Scrubb
