BC-06  — Illuminating Ungit: Unveiling the Deep Mysteries of Love in C. S. Lewis’ Last Novel

Andrew Lazo

In this seminar we will explore Till We Have Faces, C. S. Lewis’ complex and compelling last novel.  We will trace how that book acts as a kind of fictional representation of The Four Loves, how it embodies most of Lewis’ key ideas from all of his other writing, explore the vital role played by Joy Davidman in its inspiration and composition, and describe how it ultimately serves as Lewis’ most eloquent and transformative declaration of the love of God.
