Finding God in Fiction and Fairy Tales

6:15-7:30pm | June 7—July 26
Led by Blake Singer

“Suppose that casting [familiar Bible stories] into an imaginary world, stripping them of their stained-glass and Sunday school associations, one could make them for the first time appear in their real potency?”—C. S. Lewis. This class will explore how works of fiction, and more specifically fairy tales, have the capacity to present the Gospel in a new and fresh light for adults and children alike. By engaging key themes that run throughout C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia as well as essays by Lewis, participants will discover God in fairy tales. Participants are asked to purchase Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Silver Chair.
